This 2x zoom lens provides an angle of view equivalent to a 30.5-61.5mm lens on a 35mm format camera, when mounted on a Pentax Digital SLR, which is neither very wide, nor very telephoto.

This lens is not perfect but it is light, compact, well built, and weather sealed. Image quality is very sharp wide open and excellent stopped down. In general I find this lens renders colors very, very well. Things just pop in a similar way to how they pop from a Pentax DA* 55mm.
