Pentax Pentax X70 announcement clippings

Within its compact, lightweight body, the X70 features a high-magnification optical 24-times zoom lens offering a focal-length coverage between 26mm wide angle to 624mm super telephoto (in the 35mm format). Coupled with the Intelligent Zoom function, the X70?s zoom range can be extended to approximately 150 times (for a focal length of an astonishing approximately 3900mm in the 35mm format) without compromising the optical performance of the zoom lens. The camera incorporates image-sensor-shift-type SR (Shake Reduction) system to assure sharply focused, blur-free images even under demanding photographic conditions prone to camera shake, such as when using a telephoto lens or when shooting a sunset or indoor scene using only incident light.
