In terms of optics, two extra-low dispersion elements are featured, and help to reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and colour fidelity. Also, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used to suppress flare and ghosting for greater colour fidelity and higher contrast.

Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

  • Prime portrait-length lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.

  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.

  • Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and colour rendering.

  • A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.

  • Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing performance. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus qualities, that are well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.

  • Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.

  • Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
