Details

The Pentax Q 08 Wide Angle Zoom Lens can be used in constricted spaces where it is difficult to obtain separation from the subject, landscapes that emphasize a sense of vastness and perspective, and more.

Super-compact, ultra-lightweight design

Thanks to the incorporation of three molded-glass aspherical elements in its optics, this zoom lens has the shortest overall length (approximately 38 millimeters) among the Q-mount zoom lenses, and features a super-compact body weighing a mere 75 grams. With its pocket size and unique focal-length coverage from 17.5mm to 27mm in the 35mm format (with a Q7 camera body), it can be used for a wide range of subjects and applications — especially for the shooting at confined space where the subject stands close to the camera, and for scenic photography with exaggerated perspectives. Its machined- aluminum barrel cam assures smooth, comfortable zooming operation.

Exceptional visual description

Thanks to the incorporation of a molded-glass DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) element in the first optical group, this lens reduces distortion to a minimum. Also, by incorporating two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one super-low-dispersion glass element in its optics, it delivers clear, high-resolution images with edge-to-edge sharpness, while effectively compensating for chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.

Pentax Q 08 Wide Zoom Lens features:

  • Inner-focus mechanism for high-speed, low-noise AF operation.
  • 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 (Super Protect) coating to keep the front surface free of dust and stains.
  • Built-in lens shutter equipped with an ND (neutral density) filter and an iris diaphragm.
