This medium telephoto macro lens has a maximum magnification of 0.5x, corresponding to 95mm in 35mm format equivalent.
The optical system features a construction of 9 groups and 14 elements, including 3 ED lens elements. By adopting a floating focus method using a linear motor, silent and high-speed autofocusing is achieved while aberrations from long
distances to short distances are corrected in a satisfactory manner, dramatically increasing the resolution. Furthermore, by arranging the ED lenses in a well-balanced manner, chromatic aberrations are also properly corrected, contributing to a high
quality image. Also, both front and back bokeh give off a beautiful bokeh effect.
This lens is equipped with an image stabilization mechanism correcting up to a maximum of 5.0-stop*, greatly contributing to handheld shooting in low-light situations.
Also, a fluorine coating has been applied to the front most lens, acting as an excellent water repellent and stain-proofer.
