Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. A highly reliable metal mount assures durability for active use, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its shooting performance. This lens also features 0.54x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification capability for impressive macro close-up shots. Comprised of 11 elements in 9 groups, the lens system features three aspherical lenses and an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens to achieve outstanding picture quality by effectively suppressing spherical distortion or chromatic aberration.
