Features


This lens has superior peripheral brightness even at the maximum aperture and corrects a possible sagittal coma flare. This lens is perfectly suited for a wide range of subjects enabling outstanding, sharply defined images against a nicely blurred background. The fast, F1.4 aperture makes this lens desirable for use with Digital SLR cameras. This lens effectively becomes a 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors. The optimum optical design and molded glass aspherical lens elements provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. Superior optical performance is also ensured throughout the focusing range. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 17.7" (45cm) and has maximum magnification of 1:7.4. It creates a very attractive blur, even when a small aperture is used. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override.

This is a "DG" lens, making it suitable for 35mm film SLR cameras as well as digital SLR cameras. It is possible to use this lens to produce creative effects depending on the aperture value and distance. This lens effectively becomes an 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor.

This large aperture prime lens provides a bright image through the viewfinder. It enables photographers to easily check focusing and composition. The narrow depth of field enables photographers to emphasize the subject. The large maximum aperture of F1.4 is ideal for indoor photography without a flashgun or in dim lighting conditions.

The design of the large aperture provides superior performance, increasing peripheral brightness, enabling a bright viewfinder image and creating an attractive blurred background.

This lens incorporates HSM, which ensures quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.
