With a minimum focusing distance of 16 centimeters you can get close enough for truly imposing lifesize shots. There is less need to move the entire camera to find a usable shooting distance, so it is easy to shoot tabletop subjects without having to leave your seat and move around. This is an extremely useful lens for everyday situations.
A high-performance optical design that includes an ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, even when shooting close, contributing to outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness. Out-of-focus backgrounds are beautiful too, with a circular aperture mechanism helping to produce smooth, natural-looking bokeh that can make your subjects stand out.
Max. 70.8 mm diameter and 71 mm length with a total weight of only 236 grams 8.4 oz for outstanding mobility and easy handling. This lens is a perfect match for the compact series, and an ideal choice for everyday use.
Magnification and distance scales enhance convenience with precise numeric indications that can be an important aid in achieving the desired magnification and focus for macro photography.
A focus-mode switch can be used to quickly switch between manual and auto focus, adapting easily to any macro opportunities that arise. A focus-range limiter sets the lenss focus range for the fastest possible AF operation, and a focus-hold button freezes focus wherever it is pressed for controlled, stable shooting.
The lenss normal 50 mm focal length makes it ideal for shooting scenery and portraits as well as close-up subjects. An aspherical element carefully compensates for field curvature, maintaining top image quality from image center to periphery.
A sealed dust and moisture resistant design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
