This lens is currently the fastest in its class offering a superb optical quality for Full Frame Sony E mount camera. It features a close-to-zero distortion with a 110° angle of view. The ultra-fast aperture f/2 enables photographers to capture impressive astro shots very easily. The 72mm filter thread allows a quick installation of filters for landscape shooting.
