Our take on the Pentax 06 Telephoto Zoom Lens by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
The perfect companion to your Pentax Q camera's 02 zoom lens, the 06 zoom picks up, range-wise, where your 02 lens leaves off. With an equivalent range of 83-249mm, the Pentax 06 will take terrific portraits with defocused background while fully wide, and extend to that close-up of your cat pondering birds from across the yard. Plus, the f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range makes for impressive low-light performance, even when reaching for that far-away detail.

Overview: The Pentax 06 Telephoto Zoom (15-45mm F2.8) lens is designed for use with the Pentax Q series of interchangeable lens cameras, including the Q and Q10. Its 35mm equivalent is 83-249mm, and is ideal for zooming in on faraway objects. The focal-length range is directly linked to the Pentax 02 Standard Zoom lens, so you can enjoy seamless zoom coverage from wide-angle to telephoto with the two lenses.
Lens Mount: The lens has a Pentax Q-mount, and can fit Pentax Q-series cameras.
Quick-Shift: The Quick-Shift focus system allows you to instantly switch from auto to manual focus by turning the focus ring after the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system.
ED Aspherical Lens Elements: The 06 Telephoto Zoom is equipped with two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) aspherical lens elements and one super-low dispersion glass element to keep chromatic aberrations to a minimum throughout the zoom range.
