Fast f/1.2 maximum aperture offers a high degree of control over depth of field for working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. Additionally, it also benefits working in low-light conditions with slower shutter speeds.
One aspherical element and one high refractive index element is featured in the optical design to control spherical aberrations for improved clarity and sharpness throughout the aperture range.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for increased contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.5' away.
Nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

question

Can you see the aperture setting on the rear lcd screen of the camera?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
This lens has electrical contacts and circuitry so that the aperture is controlled by the camera. This makes the aperture number visible in any of the camera's aperture displays.

question

What are the rear electronic contacts for?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
The contacts allow electronic communication between the camera and the lens. While this is a manual focus lens only, the lens can do a focus confirmation via a green dot in the viewfinder and an audible beep. Perhaps more important is that you can control the aperture of the lens by the camera. Finally, the lens metadata such as aperture, focus distance, millimeter and manufacturer can be recorded to the image file to help in your processing.
