The Pentax 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 SMC DA SDM Lens is a high-magnification zoom lens that covers everything from wide-angle to super-telephoto shots. Driven by a supersonic built-in supersonic motor is the SDM autofocus system to ensure quiet, smooth and fast operation. Incorporating two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements in its optics, this zoom lens delivers bright, high-resolution images even at the edges, while effectively minimizing chromatic aberration. The 18-270mm lens is an all-around zoom lens ideal for travel photographers who desire one lens to cover all aspects of photography and to avoid the hassle of swapping lenses. More
15-times zoom covering the extra wide range
When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount lens-interchangeable digital camera body, this zoom lens offers an 15-times zoom ratio covering focal lengths from 27.5mm wide angle to 414mm super telephoto in the 35mm format. This allows the photographer to capture a wide range of scenes and subjects without lens changes — ranging from such casual applications as scenery, snapshot and portraiture to long-range sports photography. Its newly designed optics is the key to achieving such wide zoom coverage in a compact, lightweight body, for optimal versatility and maneuverability.
Supersonic AF motor (SDM)
Thanks to the incorporation of the PENTAX-original SDM autofocus system driven by a built-in supersonic motor, this zoom lens offers exceptionally smooth and quiet autofocus operation. When mounted on an SDM-compatible PENTAX K-mount lens-interchangeable digital camera body,* the focus mode is automatically switched to SDM-assisted autofocusing to ensure dependable, flawless AF operation.
** This lens is compatible with the K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-30, K-01, K-5, K-r, K-7, K-x, K-m, K20D, K200D, K100D Super and K10D camera bodies (with Ver. 1.30 or later firmware installed). When mounted on other camera bodies, the focus mode is automatically switched to manual.
