The all-metal construction realizes a rugged physical design, and the lens barrel's exterior also incorporates both depth of field and focusing distance scales for more accurate focus control. Additionally, a ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to suit working with shallow depth of field techniques.
