Lens Features:

Sony E mount compatible
With the electronic contact, the usage status of the lens is reflected in the Exif information of the shooting data. In addition, because it incorporates a distance encoder, it supports 5-axis camera shake correction on the camera body side. It is also possible to enlarge the viewfinder by operating the focus ring.

Optimized optical design
In addition to securing full-size image circle, it adopts optical design optimized for Sony E mount sensor. High resolution is maintained up to the periphery of the screen, and phenomena such as color hue are suppressed.

Apochromat design
To cope with the current high resolution digital sensor, axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification are thoroughly suppressed.

3 group floating mechanism installed
A 3-group floating mechanism is installed that independently moves three lens groups according to the shooting position. Stable image quality is secured from the shortest shooting distance of 35 cm (shooting magnification 1: 1) to distant motifs.

Manual focus that enables reliable focusing
By adopting a total metal helicoid unit machined and adjusted with high accuracy and high quality grease producing moderate torque, smooth operation feeling is realized. It enables delicate focus adjustment.
