Design and Features
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of high-quality plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
Focusing must be performed manually using the focusing ring located on the lens barrel.
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 72 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
The lens can be tilted up to +/-8 degrees and shifted up to +/-11 mm. The tilt and shift functions can be used singly or in combination. The lens can be rotated through +/-90 degrees with click stops at every 30 degrees to change tilt or shift direction.
By default, tilt and shift functions are perpendicular to each other. Some photographers prefer to set them parallel to each other – this can be done at Canon’s service center.
The lens incorporates a floating system that provides correction of aberrations and ensures constantly high image quality at the entire range of focusing distances from infinity down to the closest focusing distance. Learn more
