Bright f/1.2 Maximum Aperture:
Excels in low-light conditions, allowing for impressive performance in challenging lighting scenarios.
Offers extensive control over depth of field, enabling creative selective-focus techniques and beautiful background blur.
Three aspherical elements are employed to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion, ensuring sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements effectively minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations, contributing to greater clarity and color accuracy.
ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, along with a Super Integrated Coating, suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections.
Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction, while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction.
Super Integrated Coating ensures consistently accurate colors.
Utilizes a multi-focus system with two separate AF drive units that work in synchronization.
Employs stepping motors for smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance suitable for both stills and video applications.
Full-time manual focus override is available, and the internal focusing design maintains the overall length of the lens for faster focusing speeds.
OLED lens information panel integrated for quick confirmation of aperture setting, focus distance, and depth of field figures in various lighting conditions.
Assignable L.Fn button for quick adjustments to exposure settings and other functions.
Programmable Control Ring customizable for intuitive adjustment over various camera and exposure settings.
Electromagnetic Aperture Mechanism:
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism enhances exposure control stability, particularly beneficial for fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded Nine-Blade Diaphragm:
The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality, ideal for shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and Moisture-Resistant Construction:
The lens barrel is designed to be dust- and moisture-resistant, enhancing its durability and suitability for use in various environmental conditions.
