Design and Features
The lens barrel is heavy, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens has rather narrow focal range. Formally it is the disadvantage, however in practice it contributes to a good compensation of optical aberrations and equally high image quality at the entire focal range.
The lens features M/A - M focus mode switch.
|M/A||Autofocus mode that allows switching to manual focus with virtually no time lag - even during autofocus servo operation and regardless of autofocus mode in use.|
|M||Manual focus mode.|
Due to the prominent convex profile of the front element the lens does not have a filter thread.
