The SMCP-FA Zoom 80mm-200mm f/4.7-5.6 provides a versatile 2.5 times telephoto zoom range and incorporates an inner zoom mechanism, which eliminates the extension or contraction of the lens barrel during zooming by effectively shifting inner optical elements. As a result, it maintains the perfect weight balance at all focal lengths. Coupled with its short overall length and compact design, it's very easy to manipulate during shooting and to carry or store away in a camera bag. In close-up photography, it offers a maximum magnification of 0.25 times at a minimum focusing distance of 3.5 ft. (1.1m) at the 200mm telephoto end.
In addition to providing superior image quality, it features an attractive black and silver finish in a compact body, making them the perfect partners for the popular PENTAX ZX series of small 35mm autofocus SLR cameras
