HD and SMC coatings
This lens is treated with HD coating, a high-grade multi-layer lens coating that assures higher light transmittance and lower reflectance than conventional multi-layer coatings. As a result, it produces sharp, clear images free of flare and ghosts, even in adverse lighting conditions such as back light. Plus, the SMC coating ensures maximum light transmission.
The lens features a completely round-shaped diaphragm to optimise the performance of it's optics. This diaphragm creates a natural bokeh effect, while minimising any streaking effect.
