Its built-in supersonic AF driving mechanism achieves both smooth, quiet AF operation and a compact, lightweight body. Its extraordinary wide angle-to-long-telephoto zoom coverage makes this zoom lens extremely versatile and handy, as it allows the user to effortlessly capture a wide variety of subjects, ranging from landscapes and snapshots to sports events, without the need to change lenses.

When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount interchangeable-lens digital camera body, this zoom lens offers an 15-times zoom ratio covering focal lengths equivalent to 27.5mm wide angle to 414mm super telephoto in the 35mm format.

Other features

Minimum focusing distance of 0.49m over the entire zoom range

Rounded diaphragm to produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus rendition), while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources
