Pentax 08 Wide: 14 facts and highlights

1. widest aperture at maximum focal length

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

2. minimum focus distance

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

3. minimum focal length

A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.

4. magnification

A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.

6. Has a metal mount

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

7. maximum focal length

A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.

8. maximum angle of view

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).

9. minimum angle of view

At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).

10. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

11. Is a wide angle lens

A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.

12. Has focus motor

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

13. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

14. has a silent focus motor built into the lens

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
