By incorporating the latest optical design technologies, the optics have been completely redesigned to assure high-resolution, high-contrast images even at open aperture. Compared with the existing smc PENTAX-DA* 16-50mm F2.8ED AL [IF] SDM launched in July of 2007, this lens delivers greatly improved imaging performance.

It also incorporates a PLM (Pulse Motor) for the first time in a large-aperture lens to assure high-speed, low-noise autofocus operation. It is even fine-tuned for greater operability in manual-focus operation. This new zoom lens allows users to fully enjoy the process of photography according to their own preferences.
