A fast, ultra-wide lens with G Master quality optics, the FE 14mm f/1.8 GM is an excellent choice for capturing landscape, architecture, and astrophotography subjects. Its f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits low-light capture and advanced optics, which incorporate two XA, one Super ED, and two ED elements, maximizes sharpness while limiting distortion and aberrations. A Nano AR Coating II is applied to combat flare and ghosting when managing wide environments with bright light sources like the sun.
Autofocusing is responsive and quiet, thanks to an XD Linear motor system and a de-clickable aperture and customizable focus hold button streamline manual use. On account of the bulbous shape of the lens’s front element, a rear filter holder is built into the lens and a petal-shaped lens hood provides a first line of physical and optical defense. As a lens designed primarily for outdoor subjects, it dust and moisture sealed to protect against the elements.
Applications: Very wide and very fast, this prime is an excellent choice for landscape, architectural, and astrophotographers. Equally equipped to manage bright and dark environments, it delivers high-quality optical performance at an ultra-wide focal length.
