Besides Pentax, it is Samsung that have ventured into the larger zoom lens range, to produce this mighty 38-170mm optic. The lens has been produced in association with Schneider of Germany, so there are plenty of fine photos to be had. However as the long end of the zoom is 170mm be especially careful to hold the camera steady, to avoid blurred pictures. Again the feature list is endless. Size of the camera itself isn't bad either, for this level.
