Design and Features
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic. Both the rubberized zoom ring and metallic focusing ring rotate smoothly and are finely ribbed in order to provide a good grip and prevent slippage of fingers. The front part of the lens barrel extends forward and the overall length of the lens increases by 25mm with zooming to focal length of 55mm. In Macro mode the closest focusing distance is 30cm at focal length of 16mm and 40cm at focal length of 55mm.
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 lacks focusing mode switch, therefore you have to set the automatic or manual focus mode from the camera.
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 77 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 is equipped with twin linear motor, the autofocus is virtually silent and very fast.
