Ricoh Imaging | PENTAX Q 08 WIDE ZOOM

This wide angle zoom lens can be used in constricted spaces where it is difficult to obtain separation from the subject, landscapes that emphasize a sense of vastness and perspective, and more.

Three glass-molded aspherical lenses are used for enabling a lens length of about 38mm, which is the shortest in the Q Mount Zoom lens lineup, and for providing a compact, lightweight design that weighs only about 75g. This lens is an easily portable size and has a focal length equivalent to 17.5mm to 27mm in the 35mm film format to enable usage in a wide variety of situations, including constricted spaces where it is difficult to obtain separation from the subject, landscapes that emphasize a sense of vastness and perspective, and more. The lens uses the cam barrel made of machined aluminum materials for a smooth and elegant tactile sensation when operating. 
3.8mm to 5.9mm (equivalent to 17.5 to 27mm in 35mm film format) F3.7 to 4.

The PENTAX 08 is the most compact, ultra-wide angle zoom lens available today. This ultra-light, super compact zoom lens has the shortest overall length (approx. 38 millimeters) among the Q-mount zoom lenses, and weighs a mere 75 grams. It offers the flexibility of focal lengths from 17.5mm to 27mm (in the 35mm format) when mounted on a Q7, making it the perfect companion for on-the-go snapshots, landscapes, architecture and street photography where zooming flexibility is desired.
