This is probably the most-anticipated lens for wide-angle prime enthusiasts. It is a versatile lens with a classic broad field of view that suits everything from street shooting to landscape photography.
Impressively bright, the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is ideal for working in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field for isolating subject matter.
