Design and Features
The lens barrel is compact, of moderate weight, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic. The focusing ring is reasonably wide and finely ribbed in order to provide a good grip and prevent slippage of fingers. It is well damped and rotates smoothly in manual focus mode.
The focusing ring is not physically coupled with the focusing mechanism and works electronically (focus-by-wire) - turning of the ring actuates an electric motor that moves the focusing group of the lens to the proper position to achieve sharp focus.
The lens features focus clutch mechanism for switching the lens between autofocus and manual focus modes.
|MF||For manual focus, pull the ring back (towards the camera).|
|AF||To return to autofocus mode, push the ring forth.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 58 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
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 is equipped with stepping motor, the autofocus is low noisy and fast.
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
The sharpness at the center of the frame is excellent already wide open. The edges are good wide open and very good at subsequent apertures.
