A fast, wide-angle lens useful in a wide variety of situations, delivering superior rendering that overwhelms other 35mm f/1.8 lenses

While realizing quiet, high-speed and highly accurate AF control via the adoption of a multi-focusing system, this lens achieves superb rendering performance and suppresses aberrations to the maximum possible extent. The employment of two ED glass elements effectively compensates for axial chromatic aberration, while three aspherical lens elements effectively suppress sagittal coma flare for superb point-image reproduction of point light sources even in the peripheral areas of the frame. It also delivers the soft and natural bokeh characteristics that only a fast lens can offer.
