Ultra-Fast Maximum Aperture

The speed of a lens describes its maximum aperture. The larger the aperture, the more light it lets in and, therefore, the faster the lens. At f/1.8 this lens's speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting. When shooting at f/1.8, your photos and videos have extremely shallow depth of field, which means your subject will be in perfect focus, but the background will be softly blurred.

Provides a Normal Angle of View

Create photos and videos that mimic what you see with your eyes-both in perspective and brightness. From casual snapshots to creative close-ups, every image will be true to your memory of the moment.
