Product Overview

Pentax 08 Wide Zoom is a wide-angle zoom lens for Pentax Q-mount. It covers the 1/1.7" image circle. Introduced by Pentax in 2013 as the 8th and final lens for the system, it has 10 elements in 8 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Pentax 08 Wide Zoom is externally-zooming. As a wide-angle zoom lens, the Pentax 08 Wide Zoom is well suited for landscape photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for astro works.
