Design and Features
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
The user can choose between smooth or click-stop aperture control by means of the corresponding CLICK ON/OFF switch located on the housing of the lens.
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 72 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).
