Design and Features
The lens barrel is compact, lightweight, made of high-quality plastic. The lens mount is metallic. The focusing ring is narrow 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 39 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 micromotor, the autofocus is moderately noisy but fast.
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
The sharpness is excellent across the frame already wide open. The background blur at large apertures is neutral when focusing at medium or large distances but can be pleasant at close distances.
