Prime Wide-angle Perspective— Ultra-fast f/1.4 Aperture Natural wide angle of view, with extreme light gathering capability, delivers extraordinary performance, meeting a broad range of challenging assignments.

  • Nano Crystal Coat: Further reduces ghosting and internal flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
  • 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements: Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
  • 2 Aspherical Lens Elements: Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
  • Rear Focus (RF): Provides smooth and fast autofocus while eliminating front barrel rotation and lens length changes.
