It is a very effective lens for close-up photography.

Two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements are provided for effective compensation of color aberration, which is a common problem with wide-angle lenses. Four aspherical lenses, one moulded glass type and three hybrid aspherical types, offer excellent correction for distortion as well as all types of aberration. The design concept of this lens is especially suitable for the characteristics of Digital SLR Cameras.

New coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem of digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.

This lens has excellent correction for “vignetting”, which is a common problem of large aperture lenses. The design ensures sufficient illumination of the corners of the image.
