The lens construction integrates two
lens elements to help reduce the overall
weight of the lens while also offering
chromatic aberration-reduction benefits.
aiding in the reduction of chromatic
aberration is the inclusion of two ED
low dispersion) elements that furthermore
provide an increase in image sharpness,
clarity, and color fidelity. A Nano
Coat is applied to lens elements to
surface and internal reflections and
for greater image clarity and contrast.
Built-in Vibration Reduction image
stabilization helps to lessen the
of camera shake by up to four shutter
stops, which greatly benefits this lens'
in low-light conditions and fast-paced
photography. Additionally, an
aperture mechanism is integrated into the
lens design to provide greater exposure
control stability that is especially
beneficial when working with faster
continuous shooting rates.|
