The Pentax Zoom90 (aka IQZoom 900) was the company's top-of-the-line 35mm point-and-shoot when it was released in 1989. It features a sharp 38-90mm lens (8 elements in 7 groups) and a wide array of features and shooting modes (see manua linked belowl).

The Zoom90 requires two CR123A lithium batteries (optional). The original padded base is included.

Condition notes
The camera's functions were tested with batteries and a roll of film (the film was not developed) and all modes are working correctly.  We also verified the camera's true film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator and tested its autoexposure accuracy on a shutter analyzer .
