The lens was designed for shooting in tight spaces and for long shot use. According to the manufacturer, the ultra-wide-angle should deliver the excellent image quality and, thanks to the Zero-D construction, with almost no distortion. This is extremely useful for architectural, interior, and aerial photography.

The optics consist of 16 elements in 10 groups, of which 2 are ED, and 2 are aspherical lenses. The lens has no dome-shaped front element, which means that 77mm screw-on filters can be directly attached without any problems. This is also a much lighter solution than a matte box and also simplifies working with drones. Thanks to the toothed ring on the focus and aperture ring, the lens is compatible with a follow focus.
