Compact and versatile standard lens design
Gaussian optics, along with two high-refractive lens elements, enable photographers to work in all fields to capture sharp, clear images, even at wide f / 1.4 apertures. The lens is ideal for shooting landscapes and travel scenes, as well as portraits and reports.
An ultrasonic motor activates autofocus extremely quickly and virtually silently. The holding torque is excellent and ensures that the focus point is reached precisely, without overshoot. In addition, it has continuous manual focus override, which allows you to adjust the focus without leaving the AF mode.
Soft blur background effect
A virtually circular aperture pattern gives out-of-focus regions a smoother, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a softly out of focus background.
Super Spectra Coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate color balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and shadow, a common problem caused by light bouncing off the camera sensor.
