  • The fast maximum aperture of f/1.2 delivers striking resolving power and smooth, beautiful bokeh with an extremely shallow depth of field, realizing dramatic image expression with superb definition and natural depth.
  • Clear and crisp, high-resolution images with minimal aberration can be captured thanks to an ideal lens construction that enables natural light passage to the image sensor.
  • Beautiful gradation of the degree of bokeh from the sharply focused focal plane brings effective emphasis to the primary subject against a naturally blurred background, creating a sense of depth. Large, round bokeh is also beautifully reproduced with minimized color fringing at the edges.
  • Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat are employed to effectively suppress ghost and flare, ensuring sharp, clear rendering even under harsh lighting conditions.
  • Fast and accurate autofocusing is attained even with an extremely shallow depth of field at the f/1.2 maximum aperture by utilizing a multi-focusing system with stepping motors employed as AF actuators.
  • Outstanding movie recording performance is achieved by intensive consideration even of details such as focus-breathing compensation, minimized operational sound, stable aperture control and smooth operation of the control ring.
  • A lens information panel and lens Fn button are incorporated for expanded shooting flexibility.
  • The electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism provides accurate, stable aperture control even during continuous shooting.
  • The lens body is designed to achieve superior dust- and drip-resistant performance for enhanced reliability.
