The second copy is brilliant. I rarely stop it down and it just keeps on delivering. There's nothing I can smuggle into a concert which can give me results like this.

Great lens. One of the best lenses to get for the pentax q. We went to costa rica and this lens took amazing pictures of the animals and it was so sharp. Also great bokey effect as well. I had a camcorder with me as well, but this lens mades the video quality a huge difference.

The lens does not perform the best at 15 and 45mm. I found that shooting around 24mm provided the very best image. I only use the extremes if I absolutely have to.

    Construction quality, weakest at 15 and 45

This is a good lens when it works. There is a history of this lens having focusing failure for no apparent reason. Because the focus is electrical, when the focus fails the lens is unusable and is usually replaced rather than repaired. You might want to get an extended warranty if you can.

This is an amazing lens that does everything you'd want it to. It's light, fast and extremely versatile. The colours are great and the image quality is excellent. Sharp images from f/2.8 and upward.

    Sharp, great FoV range

    None, possibly the best lens on the system

This is a really high quality lens. I love taking this attached to my Pentax Q10 for sporting events and concerts where full size SLR's are not allowed. The photos for this review were all taken from the same location about 60 yards from the stage.

of the size and weight and price (with about 4 times the depth of field.) Even an MF/T 35-100 f2.8 is about five times as big, five times as heavy, and five times as expensive.

This one is a must for Pentax Q owners, the constant F2.8 is really helpful for getting bokeh/longer zoom photos, especially indoor stage/arena shots where other telephoto lens with DSLR usually get stopped by the guard.

I got my 06 lens as part of a 2-lens Q7 kit. My hope was to have something for candid shots and more formal portraits without having to get in people's faces. The tele zoom range of this lens fits the bill very nicely. A Q7 with the 06 lens is not obtrusive in public.

    Small, lightweight, sharp, good zoom range

    Aftermarket hood, touchy focus ring

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.
