- True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with an 11" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects.
- Focusing distance and magnification scale is printed on top of the lens to aid in more technical applications.
- Focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between 11-19.7", 19.7"-infinity, or full.
- This lens' focusing ring can be slid forwards and backwards to quickly shift between manual to autofocus modes.
- Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length during use, benefitting focus accuracy and ease of use when working distance is a concern.
- Two extra-low dispersion elements, including one Super ED element, are featured in the lens design to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
- One aspherical element helps reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
- Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
- Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
- Direct Drive SSM system, along with the internal focusing design, promotes responsive and precise autofocus performance that's also quiet to suit video recording applications.
- Focus hold button permits manually stopping the autofocus at a specified point or the button can also be customized to control a variety of other assignable functions.
- Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds.
