The AF353 super-mini zoom lens provides a wide range of lens setting from 35mm wide angle to 300mm telephoto and high magnification of more than 8x. Despite high magnification, body length is astonishingly short 101.3mm. The lens is equipped with a new zoom lock that prevents the zoom section from sliding down due to its own weight when the camera is pointed downwards. It also makes the lens more compact and easier to carry. A metal zoom assembly ensures enhanced, stable performance and durability. In the optical system, the lens contains super-low dispersion FK01 SD glass. An optical system like this and built-in flare cutter give sharper contrast and higher resolution.
