Within its compact, easy-to-carry body, the PENTAX X-5 features a high-magnification optical 26-times zoom lens offering a focal-length coverage from 22.3mm ultra-wide angle to 580mm super telephoto (in the 35mm format). Coupled with the 1cm Macro mode, which lets the photographer capture dramatic close-up images of a subject from just one centimeter away, it offers quick, effortless shooting in a wide range of photographic situations. It also provides the Intelligent Zoom function, which extends the camera's zoom coverage to approximately 187.2 times (for a focal length of 4174mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.
