The RZ10 features a 10x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28-280mm (F3.2-5.9). It is made up of 9 elements in groups. This zoom increases thanks to Pentax's intelligent zoom feature, which captures a smaller image with increased magnification up to 67x at VGA resolution. To help keep the camera steady, the camera features sensor-shift SR, Pixel Tracking and high ISO SR and Digital SR.

Focus Range:
Normal: 1.31' to infinity (wide), 2.95' to infinity (tele)
Macro: 0.33-1.64' (wide), 0.66-1.64' (tele)
Super Macro: Approx 0.03-0.98' (at mid zoom, set automatically)
