Key features:

  • Apochromatic design: The APO design, which combines multiple special lenses, effectively suppresses chromatic aberration, enabling high-resolution image expression at all shooting distances. It can be used not only for close-ups, but also as a normal telephoto lens with a focal length of 200mm, which is useful when shooting distant subjects. It is also ideal for taking advantage of beautiful bokeh and using compression effects, demonstrating unique descriptive power.
  • Inner focus method: The inner focus system keeps the overall length of the lens unchanged even when the focus ring is operated, allowing you to concentrate on shooting without worrying about contact with the subject even when taking close-up shots.
  • Macro photography is possible while maintaining a distance from the subject: Taking advantage of the moderate working distance, it is possible to shoot subjects that are difficult to get close to and create lighting with a high degree of freedom.
