Key Features:

  • A standard lens with a maximum aperture of F1.4 for full frame.
  • The angle of view of the standard lens is close to that seen by the naked eye, making it an easy-to-use lens for all purposes.
  • The maximum aperture of F-number is 1.4, which is extremely bright, making it useful for shooting in dimly lit areas such as indoors or in the evening. In addition, it can be used for a wide range of expressions, such as portraits in which the background is greatly blurred, making use of the shallow depth of field.
  • A circular diaphragm with 13 diaphragm blades is used, so you can enjoy beautiful circular bokeh.
  • The lens body is made entirely of metal and incorporates eight lenses, including high-refractive glass, for a durable and luxurious finish.
  • Uses a clickless aperture ring. Please use it not only for still shooting but also for movie shooting.
