Pentax IQ Zoom 120SW

You point and then you shoot. Some are inexpensive. Some are very expensive.

Pentax IQ Zoom 120SW

Postby PFMcFarland » Sat Dec 19, 2015 11:03 pm

Power Zoom Multi-AF 28-120mm (4.3x) f5.6-12.8 6-Elements/5-groups lens.
Auto Film loading, transport, and rewind. Mid-roll rewind available.
Date/Time stamp. 7 flash modes. Self Timer. Remote control.
Diopter Corrected viewfinder. Selectable “Panoramic” mode.
Aluminum front body shell. DX ISO coding 25-3200.

I just like the fact it has 28mm on the short end of the zoom. And now that I know it is not always in Panorama mode (d’oh!), it might just join with my Canon Sure Shot Z135 more often.

Low distortion, and little vignetting from a 28mm zoom lens. But then it is quite slow too. And there is the occasional light leak from the tubus. Shot on Kodak BW400CN.

I may have to keep this one. It came in a large lot with a case, and strap.
