A long telephoto zoom, this lens provides a 225-675mm equivalent focal length range when used with Pentax APS-C-format DSLRs.
Extra-low dispersion glass elements are incorporated within the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and produce high image clarity with edge-to-edge sharpness.
A High Definition (HD) coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting in order to deliver greater contrast and color fidelity. Additionally, a Super Protect (SP) coating is designed to defend the surface of exposed elements from fingerprints, water, dust, and oils while making the front and rear elements easier to clean.
A Direct Current (DC) autofocus motor benefits from an internal focusing design and delivers fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance.
The Quick-Shift Focus System allows you to first use autofocus to acquire general focus on a subject, then instantly refine your focus position manually without the need for an AF/MF selector.
Four dedicated AF buttons pair with focus preset modes and a focus range limiter for greater control over your focusing position.
The weather-resistant construction utilizes 21 distinct seals to prevent moisture or dust from entering the lens.
A lock button can be engaged to hold the zoom position in place while transporting the lens.
A removable, rotating tripod collar is included with the lens for better balance when shooting atop a tripod.
