The 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 Zoom Lens for Q Mount Cameras from Pentax is an ideal everyday lens for the Pentax Q camera.

            Comments about Pentax 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 Zoom Lens for Q Mount Cameras:

            The Pentax Q; for such a small format system, it's amazing how great the quality is in its bread and butter lenses 01,02, and 06. The 02 is very well constructed and the glass quality is superb. 27mm wide fine for my purposes so I have yet to try the new ultra wide 08 lens. Its nice to have a 2.8 aperture at its widest but seems to really do well at 3.2 to 4.5. I love shooting at night with both it and the 01 prime depending on subject and have gotten great results.

            Should have been the original kit lens.

            Comments about Pentax 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 Zoom Lens for Q Mount Cameras:

            The 5-15mm lens is average in all ways, it acts like a typical kit lens. The good news is the variable focal length is good and allows for framing the shot. I could say that this is the only lens that is zoom'able. But I see they just added the 15-45mm lens to the franchise. The only odd thing about the lens is that when it is fully retracted it is 15mm. To get to 5mm the lens extends out. That is not good or bad, but definately different.

            Focus speed is average and it is quiet. Focus accuracy is 95% or better in my experience which is, again, average. There really isn't much to say aside from the focal range is needed and it is the only kid on the block for this mount at current time. Worth the money, but I believe the price could come down to match other kit lenses. This lens offers nothing special to make it higher than other kit lenses which take more material and glass to make.
