Design and Features
The lens barrel is compact, of moderate weight, dust-proof and water-resistant, 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 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 43 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 virtually silent and very fast.
