This single lens features a wide usage range for unfettered shooting and control of out-of-focus (bokeh) effect. Two aspherical lenses are used to correct various types of aberrations and provide delineation performance over the entire zoom range. The ultrasonic motor drive AF mechanism (SDM), inner focus system, and other components make this a high-performance standard zoom lens that also enables smooth and easy operation.

Ultrasonic motor is used in the lens for providing an "SDM" mechanism enabling quiet and smooth autofocus operation.Easy to use and high magnification zoom at more than 4X from wide to telephoto for wide coverage range.Two aspherical lenses (AL) are used for realizing sharp delineation performace with reduced aberrations.IF (inner focus) optical system for correcting various types of aberrations at all shooting distances. The lens length does not change during focusing for easy handling without becoming unbalanced.Quick-Shift Focus System that enables manual focusing after focusing by the AF without any need for a switching operation.SP (super protect) coating on the front lens for repelling water and dirt

*AF is for SDM only, and this is not supported by the body AF. Even if the * ist D series and K100D (K110D) are attached, the AF does not operate, and MF only is possible.

*If a C-PL filter or other thicker filter is attached, vignetting can occur at the edges of the image. General filters or thin C-PL filters can be used without any problems.
