This telephoto zoom lens is suitable when a distance separates the lens and the subject, such as for sports or landscapes.

This is a compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens that enables a bright open F value of F2.8 over the entire zoom range. This lens enables expression of out-of-focus (bokeh) effect and provides impressive delineation performance by effectively correcting chromatic aberration, which is only possible with large-aperture lenses. This also enables use of a high-speed shutter in dim locations and is effective at reducing blurring due to hand shaking. This lens supports the medium telephoto to full telephoto shooting range equivalent to 69mm to 207mm in the 35mm film format when the Q7 is attached, and it can be used for a wide range of photography, including portraits, sports, and landscapes.

SP Coating  SP coating , also called SUPER PROTECT COATINGi, is a PENTAX-original special coating that provides superior performance in repelling water and oils. It is used on the front surface of the first high-performance lens for effective protection of the lens surface. This coating not only prevents adhesion of dust, water drops, oils, and other substances, but it also makes it easy to wipe off objects that adhere to the lens.

Built-in Lens Shutter syncs with the Pentax Q-series mirrorless cameras'  built in flash at speeds up to 1/2000 sec.

  • The PENTAX 06 TELEPHOTO ZOOM lens for Q-series cameras covers focal lengths between 15mm-45mm, or 83mm-249mm in 35mm format, and a maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its entire zoom range.  Since the 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 lenses.

Constant F2.8 throughout entire zoom range

  • Telephoto zoom lens featuring F2.8 over the entire rangeThis lens provides a bright, open F-value of F2.8 over the entire zoom range. This allows rendering of out-of-focus (bokeh) effects with an outstanding level of quality that is possible only with large-aperture lenses and enables shooting at high shutter speeds even in dim locations for reducing the adverse effects of hand shaking. When attached to a PENTAX Q mount digital SLR camera, this lens supports the medium telephoto to full telephoto shooting range equivalent to 83mm to 249mm in the 35mm film format (69mm to 207 mm in the 35mm film format, when attached to a PENTAX Q7 mount digital SLR camera), and it can be used for a wide range of photography, including portraits, sports, and landscapes.

Super-compact and ultra-lightweight

  • This lens is super-compact and ultra-lightweight by design, measuring in a 2.2 inches in length and 2.0 inches in diameter, and weighing in at a mere 3.2 ounces. This extremely compact, light lens is designed to enhance ease of carrying and maneuverability. Also, by turning the zoom ring to click-stop storage maker, the front portion of the lens can be retracted and locked into the lens barrel, further reducing overall length.

Super Protect SP coating

  • Super Protect (SP) coating is applied to the front surface of the optics to block dust and dirt.

Two ED glass elements and one super-low dispersion glass element

  • In order to optimize exceptional 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.

Quick-Shift focus system

  • The Quick-Shift focus system allows for instant switching to manual focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.
