  • Quick-shift Focus System, to provide instant shift to manual-focus operation, after locking the subject in focus during AF operation by pressing the shutter-release button halfway down
  • Two-step focus range limiter, to minimise AF operation time
  • Nine-blade, round-shaped diaphragm, to produce a natural, beautiful bokeh (defocus) effect, while minimising the streaking effect of point light sources
  • Electromagnetic diaphragm control, to provide high-precision exposure control during video shooting
  • Available when mounted on a PENTAX K-1 Mark II, K-1, K-3 II, K-3, KP, K-70, K-50, K-S2 or K-S2 camera body
  • Filter Diameter 67mm

    Compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens with outstanding portability Despite its compact, lightweight design weighing approximately 819 grams, this zoom lens covers the image circle of 35mm full-frame digital SLRs and provides a focal length range of 70mm to 210mm to facilitate handheld outdoor photography. When mounted on an APS-C-format camera, its focal length range is extended to the equivalent of 107mm to 322mm in the 35mm format.

    Coupled with its compact, lightweight body, it can be easily integrated into any APS-C-format camera system. In its 20-element, 14-group optics, it incorporates three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and two anomalous dispersion glass elements to deliver high-contrast, high-resolution images with edge-to-edge sharpness, while effectively compensating for distortion and chromatic and coma aberrations.

    In addition to a short minimum focusing distance of 0.95 meters, the lens barrel was designed to be extension-free during AF operation to keep the overall dimensions intact. This allows the photographer to enjoy active field photography in a wide range of outdoor applications, including scenic photography, townscape shooting utilising a beautiful bokeh (defocus) effect in the fore- and background, close-up photography of animals and plants, and sports and wildlife photography where its outstanding portability comes in handy.

    HD Coating to enhance imaging power This lens features PENTAX’s latest HD Coating.* Compared to conventional multi-layer coatings, this high-grade, multi-layer coating not only improves light transmittance but also reduces average reflectance in the visible light range by more than 50 percent, minimising the adverse effects of flare and ghost images even in demanding lighting conditions such as backlighting.
    * HD is an abbreviation of High Definition.

    Weather-resistant construction, perfect for outdoor photography This zoom lens features weather-resistant construction to prevent the intrusion of water into the lens barrel. When mounted on a PENTAX weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings — even in rain or mist, or at locations prone to water splashes or sprays.

    SP Coating to repel stains This lens features SP (Super Protect) Coating on its front surface. Applied by means of a PENTAX-exclusive fluorine deposition process, this coating is highly repellent to water, grease and dirt, making it easy to wipe off stains such as fingerprints. This frees the photographer from worries in outdoor photography.

    Built-in SDM This lens incorporates a ring-type SDM (Supersonic Direct-drive Motor) to assure quiet, high-speed AF operation and improve operability in outdoor shooting.

    Understanding: Aperture

    Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

    Understanding: Lens Types

    Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
    Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
    Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
    Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
    Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
    Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
    Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

    Understanding: Lens Mounts

    Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

    Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

    Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
