  • Improved Quick-Shift Focus System

    The PENTAX-original Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation.  Operability has been improved thanks to a three-position switch installed on this lens, allowing instant switching among QFS/A, QFS/M and MF modes. With a choice of three distinctive modes, the user is assured of speedier, more accurate focusing operation for a given subject or application.

  • Preset Button

    For more shooting convenience, press and hold the PRESET button to record a focus point after focusing.

  • Zoom Lock Switch

    The zoom lock switch prevents the lens from extending under its own weight while you are carrying the camera.

  • HD Coating to optimize image rendition

    This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating.* Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this PENTAX-original coating assures higher light transmittance and less reflection to deliver bright, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight. * HD stands for High Definition.

  • AF Buttons

    This lens is equipped with 4 AF buttons, which provide  more stable AF operation and better hold of the lens regardless of whether the user is shooting photos with the camera in a vertical and horizontal position. The user can assign preferred settings to these AF buttons including a Focus Preset Mode and AF Cancel Mode.

  • Focus Range Limiter

    Focus Range Limiter minimizes AF operation time by allowing the user to fix the focus range to one of three sub-ranges -- Full, close range (2 to 6m)* or far range 6m to ∞).   *This limiter does not operate in manual focus.
