Price comparison

General info

1.weight

75g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.Has a metal mount
Pentax 08 Wide
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
3.Is a wide angle lens
Pentax 08 Wide
A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.
4.minimum focal length

4mm

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.
5.maximum focal length

6mm

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.

Optics

1.maximum angle of view

102°

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).
2.minimum angle of view

77°

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).
3.magnification

0.03x

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.
4.optical zoom

1.5x

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

Aperture

1.wide aperture (main camera)

f/3.7

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.widest aperture at maximum focal length

4f

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.

Focus

1.Has focus motor
Pentax 08 Wide
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
2.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Pentax 08 Wide
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.
3.minimum focus distance

0.25m

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.
