This versatile lens can be used in a variety of situations to bring subjects up close and when shooting portraits with beautifully defocused backgrounds.
Comprised of 14 elements in 12 groups, the lens system features three aspherical lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses to achieve dramatic downsizing, despite its powerful 10x optical zoom, while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates to shoot super clear shots even in low-light situations such as at nighttime or indoors.
Incorporating an inner focus drive system and stepping motor, this lens is capable of smooth, silent operation to work with the camera’s high-speed, high-precision Contrast AF system for both photo and video recording. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at 240 fps (max) to take full advantage of cameras with high-speed AF.
