Good little lens

Just Plain Mike, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use my mirrorless camera primarily for street photography, since it is less conspicuous than a DSLR with zoom or telephoto lens. I love the size of the lens, very compact and light. The zoom is smooth and easy, and the autofocus is quick.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Crisp Images, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Light And Compact, Lightweight, Parafocal
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Adds great versatility.

  • Excerpt: The Q system really lacked zoom until this lens was released. The fact that its 2.8 the whole way through just sweetens the pot and helps to keep your shutter speed up if you really don't want to push the ISO too high.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

  • Summary: Love this lens - if you have a Q, using this as a pseudo macro and for when I need more reach, this lens provides excellent image quality. Really nice for concerts too as most security guards will let you in.

  • Summary: I bought this lens for my Pentax Q to pair with the 02 standard zoom and 03 fisheye I also use. It features a fast constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, along with a built-in leaf shutter and ND filter (similar to the 01 and 02 lenses).

12 April 2013
  • Summary: The product is as described and shipping was right on time. I was expecting more of an in-your-face zoom than this, because of statements made by other Q owners.

Classic Pentax Glass

Chris Feola, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I've been shooting Pentax since I was a professional newspaper photographer in the '80s. Pentax's were rugged, easy to use, and featured tack sharp glass in the best lenses, such as my old fav 135 f1.8 ED. This Q 06 Zoom lives up to that tradition.
