Driving the autofocus is a stepping motor, which helps enable quiet and speedy performance. One extra-low dispersion (ED) element is incorporated for reducing color fringing and chromatic aberrations to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy.

Optical Lens Construction
The optical design of the lens includes ten lens elements in nine groups, which work together to reduce dispersion and chromatic aberration. Among these ten lens elements are one ED and two high-index elements.
Eye Detection
The focusing accuracy provided by eye detection makes it easy to capture images while ensuring your subject is in focus. This is also beneficial for tracking your subject while shooting video, ensuring smooth and in-focus footage.
Lens Design
The lens barrel and mount are made from aluminum, contributing to its durable, yet lightweight construction. A built-in USB-C port allows for firmware updates.
