A highly interesting telephoto focal length which, because of its outstanding speed and performance, gives excellent results above all in the fields of portraiture, sport and fashion. The high aperture maximum aperture can be used to limit the depth of field, to make more use of the available light or to gain faster shutter speeds for action shots. It is an absolutely superb lens which can be converted into a 250mm f/4 telephoto lens using the specially computed Longar 1.4x tele photo converter.
