Design and Features
This Distagon® lens with an angular field of 100º has a time-honoured design. Its special features are excellent image quality, a good distortion correction unexpected in this type of lens and an exceptionally compact design.
This lens provides the same image quality as the well-known and time-tried design when photographing subjects at a long-distance. New, however, is the design of the focusing system. When the lens is focused to short distances, the positions of the lens groups change in relation to each other. This counteracts the loss in image quality in the outer zones of the image and extends the useful range of the lens to 0.3 m.
Filter size: slip on 70 mm.
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
