The digital stepper motor (DSM) ensures fast start-stop, high precision, and quiet focusing, making it suitable for both photography and video recording.

The lens design incorporates 9 elements in 8 groups with nano-multi-layer coating, featuring 1 aspherical lens to compensate for various aberrations and 1 low dispersion lens to effectively suppress dispersion problems caused by wide viewing angles. The 7 round aperture blades contribute to creating round bokeh.

A single low dispersion element is employed to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations, aiming for heightened clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, an aspherical element and a high-refractive index element are incorporated to mitigate distortion and spherical aberrations, enhancing overall sharpness and precise rendering.

The application of nano multi-layer coating to individual elements serves to manage flare and ghosting, particularly beneficial when working in bright and backlit conditions.

Thanks to the USB Type-C interface, users can easily download the latest firmware for lens and control ring updates.

Price and release date

This lens is currently available for pre-order on the Bhphotovideo.com online store, priced at $375.
