  • Focus Hold Button: For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing even in continuous advance mode - and focus lock can also be set on the spot-focus center frame area.
  • Smooth Backgrounds: Smooth, visually pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds give portraits and close-ups an extra dimension of beauty.
  • Excellent Contrast Reproduction: Precision optical design and advanced T coatings help to reduce flare and increase contrast.
  • Auto Clutch: In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate - and in manual focusing, you'll have a solid, hands-on feel.
