The wide Z mount and constant f/2.8 rounded 9-blade aperture enable thrilling performance in any light. You get exquisite starbursts. And natural-looking bokeh, which is smoothly graded to the edges of the frame.
Sharpness is superb—and exceptional at close distances. A minimum focus distance of just 0.38 m throughout the zoom range puts you in control of the frame, from close-up to infinity.
Even point light sources are rendered in beautiful detail thanks to a design with 17 elements in 15 groups. ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings combat ghosting and flare caused by light coming from multiple directions.
More light. More freedom.
