Overview: The smc Pentax-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR is a 3x standard zoom lens for Pentax D-SLR and interchangeable lens cameras.
It is weather-resistant for shooting in damp, inclement conditions.
Lens Mount: The lens has a KAF-mount,
and can fit Pentax D-SLR and interchangeable lens cameras with KAF,
KAF2 and KAF3 mounts. This includes
the Pentax K-5 and K-01 cameras.
Zoom Ring: With the 18-55mm lens, zooming is performed by
rotating the zoom ring (closest to the camera body). Markings are provided at
18, 24, 35, 45, and 55mm.
Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the PH-RBC 52mm lens hood to keep

be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds
approximately 1-1/4" to the overall length of the lens.
Super Protect: The Pentax-original SP (Super Protect) coating
repels dust, water, and grease to help keep the lens clean.
