In the category of high speed standard lenses, this handy universal lens has a world-wide reputation for the highest optical performance. With outstanding imaging quality even at the closest focusing range. It is available in black anodized finish and in silver chrome finish. Includes a built in slide out lens hood.
This lens has been updated with the "6-bit" coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply a "final stage" software based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made).
Includes "6-bit code" which allows the digital M8 camera to identify which lens is being used, and also to store this information in image metadata
