The Pentax Q 06 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.

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.

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.

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.

Pentax Q 06 Telephoto Zoom Lens 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.
