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.
