This high-performance Star (*) series lens offers the finest performance in a mid to telephoto zoom focal range. Get superb image quality thanks to the newly improved Aero Bright Coating II and HD coating with low reflectivity which significantly reduces flare and ghosting. Equipped with a (DC) motor and focus range limiter to achieve faster and quieter focusing, along with its all weather construction, so you can significantly enhance your sporting, portraiture and wildlife photography in any weather environment. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements ensure exceptional edge to edge sharpness, high contrast and true color rendition, as well as 9 rounded diaphragm blades ensure beautiful soft bokeh.
This high-performance Star (*) series lens assures exceptional image rendition with edge-to-edge sharpness by effectively compensating various aberrations to a minimum. When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount SLR camera body, it provides a zoom ratio of approx. 2.9 times to cover a telephoto range from 107mm to 307mm in the 35mm format.
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, you are assured of speedier, more accurate focusing operation for a given subject or application.
This lens features dependable, all-weather construction with 13 special seals to effectively prevent intrusion of water and dust into the lens interior. When used with a PENTAX weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings — even in rain, mist, or locations prone to water splashes or spray.
This zoom lens is treated with the newly developed Aero Bright Coating II — a lens-coating nanotechnology that employs a super-low refractive film fabrication process to assure light reflectance lower than that of the conventional Aero Bright Coating.* By coupling this advanced lens coating with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating** it reduces reflectance in the visible light spectrum to less than 50% of that of conventional multi-layer coatings, this lens allows the user to capture crisp, high-contrast images free of flare and ghosting, even under demanding lighting conditions.
The PENTAX-original SP (Super Protect) coating repels dust, water and grease to keep your lens clean and your image quality at its peak.
This lens offers a large maximum aperture of f/2.8 over the entire zoom range, making it ideal for portraiture with beautifully defocused foreground/background and sports photography where high shutter speeds to freeze the action are required.
The 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 (1.2 to 4m), or far range 4m to ∞).
