Above features provide an excellent portrait shooting solution for mirrorless cameras users. The lens also houses with 7 elements in 9 groups of optical lenses to provide great deal of image clarity and color renderness.

The compact size (55mm x 61.5mm) and light-weight (246g) of the lens also make it perfect for mirrorless camera users.
