The superlative optical performance and solid build quality of this zoom earn it Pentax's DA* designation—you can call it star billing. But it’s f/2.8-heavy, and f/2.8-pricey—considering that it’s an f/4.
One of Pentax's top-grade lenses, this $1,300 (street) lens is the longest DA* zoom and also has the biggest zoom range (4.2X), a 92-383mm equivalent in full-frame terms.
A constant-aperture f/4, digital-only optic, it has a solid build, pro-worthy weather resistance and special glass for controlling chromatic aberration. It comes with a tripod collar and a lenshood that has a finger window to let you turn a mounted filter without having to remove the hood.
