The SMC Pentax-Q 15-45mm F2.8 Telephoto Zoom 06 lens has just hit the shelves in the US. This lens is the most recent addition to the Pentax Q lineup, adding much-needed telephoto versatility to the Pentax Q system. The lens was announced earlier this year at Photokina.

The 15-45mm Q lens is equivalent to a 83-250mm lens on film, meaning that it has quite a bit of reach!
For those unfamiliar with the Pentax Q camera, you must understand how small the camera is to truly appreciate it: it is the world's smallest interchangeable-lens camera, likely smaller than the palm of your hand! It features RAW shooting, full PASM manual controls, and compatibility (via an adapter) with DSLR lenses. At its heart is a backlit 1/2.3"-inch CMOS sensor: nothing fancy, but it still has a great deal of resolving power with DSLR lenses!
