You can express unconstrained depth with the bright aperture, while the 9 blades also deliver beautiful bokeh, starburst, and out-focusing effects. Also, you can even achieve high image quality in low light conditions and indoors thanks to the fast shutter speed

The lens features 11 lenses in 8 groups, helping to minimize distortion and various aberrations, while producing crystal clear resolution. The special optic lenses, aspherical lens, and high-refractive lens deliver sharp and vivid images to camera sensors by effectively tuning the light path, and, thanks to the ultra multi-coating, flare and ghosting effects can be controlled.
