The PENTAX MX-1 features an optical four-times zoom lens offering a large maximum aperture of F1.8 to F2.5 and a 28mm wide-angle coverage (in the 35mm format). Because the camera’s high performance assures sharp, well-defined images even when the zoom lens is set at maximum aperture and the widest angle of view, the photographer can use faster shutter speeds in dimly lit locations and take advantage of a beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus) effect in the background. The MX-1 also provides a 1cm Macro mode to capture dramatic close-up images of a subject from just one centimetre away, and an Intelligent Zoom function to extend the zoom coverage up to approximately 7.8 times (for a focal length of approximately 218mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.
