Pentax 06 Telephoto 15-45mm Zoom

Pentax is pleased to announce the launch of the Pentax-06 telephoto zoom, an interchangeable telephoto zoom lens designed for exclusive use with the super-compact Q-mount digital interchangeable-lens cameras.

This is a high performance telephoto zoom lens featuring a large F/2.8 maximum aperture.

The third release of the high-performance Q-mount lens series, this telephoto zoom lens covers focal lengths between 83mm and 249mm (in the 35mm format) and a maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its entire zoom range.

Thanks to its retractable design, the lens is designed to be super-compact and ultra-lightweight, it is the perfect partner for the pocket-sized Q series cameras. Since its focal-length range is linked to that of the Pentax-02 Standard zoom lens, the photographer can enjoy seamless zoom coverage from wide angle to telephoto by combining these two zoom lenses.

Major features:

1. Telephoto zoom lens.The large aperture of this zoom lens provides the photographer with a number of benefits including a bokeh (out of focus) effect and the use of faster shutter speeds to reduce camera shake during shooting in dimly lit conditions. When mounted on a PENTAX Q, it covers focal lengths from 83mm medium telephoto to 249mm telephoto (in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of subjects and applications, including portraits, sports events and landscapes.

2. Exceptional image rendition In order to optimise image rendition, this zoom lens incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one super-low dispersion glass element in its optics to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.

3. Super-compact, ultra-lightweight design Measuring 56 mm in length and 50 mm in diameter and weighing a mere 90 grams, this zoom lens is designed to be extremely compact and lightweight, making it easy to carry and use. By turning the zoom ring to the click-stop storage marker positioned next to the 15mm focal-length index, the front portion of the lens can be retracted and locked into the lens barrel to further reduce its overall length.

Other features:
  • Quick-Shift Focus system for instant switching to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system
  • SP (Special Protect) coating applied to the front surface of the optics to block dust and dirt
  • The AF motor installed in the lens barrel assures smooth, quiet focusing operation. The lens shutter mechanism prevents rolling shutter effect and synchronizes with the camera’s built-in flash.
  • The lens is also equipped with a built-in ND (neutral density) filter, which comes in handy when shooting with open aperture in bright locations or when using slower shutter speeds

The Pentax Q Telephoto lens will be available from mid-October. RRP £249.99.

Optional accessory:
PH-RBA 40.5mm -  A round shaped, plastic lens hood for exclusive use with the Pentax-06 telephoto zoom lens.
