The normal field of view is complemented by a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture for controlling depth of field and producing selective focus effects, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions. Two aspherical elements are used in the optical design to help reduce spherical aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness, and these elements also help to reduce the overall size and weight of the lens. Additionally, a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system is employed to deliver quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to suit both video and photo applications.

Does this lens have a manual clutch? Which lenses offer a manual clutch ?
Asked by: Lou
The lens has a manual focus clutch which can be used when in Manual mode or when Manual focus or one of the AutoFocus + Manual modes is selected. Because it is a prime lens there is no need for a manual zoom clutch.
