PRODUCT OVERVIEW

This telephoto zoom lens has been developed as a model of the Pentax Star (*) series, which boasts the highest image quality of all Pentax interchangeable lenses by compensating various aberrations to a minimum. Thanks to its large aperture design, it provides a large maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths from 70mm to 200mm. It produces extra-sharp, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost images, even under difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, this lens' dust proof and weather-resistant body makes it extremely durable in difficult outdoor conditions.
Details

Key features:

  • Image circle covering Full-frame sensor
  • 3x ratio telezoom (equivalent to 107-307mm for APS-C)
  • Wide constant aperture f/2.8 achieves sharp depiction and natural bokeh
  • Dependable weather-resistant construction against humidity and dust
  • Smooth, quiet autofocus operation driven by a built-in DC motor
  • New Aero Bright Coating and HD Coating to optimize light transmittance and minimize reflection
  • ED lens elements for brilliant sharpness and saturated colours
  • Detachable tripod mounting with a newly designed anti-falling mechanism

High-performance Star series lens 

When mounted on a Pentax K-mount DSLR camera body, this lens provides a zoom ratio of approximately 2.9x to cover a telephoto range from 107mm to 307mm in the 35mm format. Since it provides a large maximum aperture of f/2.8 over the entire zoom range, it is ideal for portraiture with beautiful background bokeh, or sports photography demanding high shutter speeds to freeze the action. Its image circle is optimised to cover even the image size of 35mm film format SLR cameras. As a result, it not only assures brilliant, high-resolution images without compromising the sharpness at edges on an existing Pentax DSLR camera body, but it is also capable of accepting future models with larger image sensors without modifications.

State-of-the-art optical technology

This zoom lens is treated with 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 that reduces an average reflectance in a visible ray spectrum to less than 50% of conventional multi-layer coatings, this lens effectively reduces flare and ghost images to a minimum even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight. In its optics, it also features four super-low dispersion glass elements, two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, and two Super ED glass elements, which have optical properties similar to fluorite and assure lower light dispersion and more effective compensation of chromatic aberration. As a result, this lens produces brilliant, high-contrast images with edge-to-edge sharpness, while effectively compensating chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.

Dustproof, weather-resistant construction

Developed as an AW (All Weather) model, this zoom lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 13 special seals to prevent the intrusion of water and dust particles into the lens interior. By pairing it 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 or mist, or at locations prone to water splashes or spray.

Three-position switch for Quick-Shift Focus System

The lens is equipped with the Pentax-developed Quick-Shift Focus System, which allows the user to instantly switch to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system. In order to improve its operability, a three-position switch is newly installed on this lens, allowing instant switching among QFS/A, QFS/M and MF modes. QFS/A is an autofocus-priority mode, which allows the user to switch to manual-focusing operation only when autofocus operation is completed. QFS/M is a manual-focus-priority mode, which enables the user to switch to manual focusing at any time - even when the AF system is in operation. MF mode allows the user to instantly switch to manual focusing with a simple twist of the focus ring on the lens. With a choice of three distinctive modes, the user is assured of speedier, more accurate focusing operation for a given subject or application.
