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
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.

Excerpt: I needed a light take with me anywhere camera and a good lens. I purchased the Pentax Q10 and this lens. I could not be happier. The camera takes great photos, the lens does everything I thought it would.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Nice Optics, Reliable

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.
