Excellent Contrast Reproduction: Precision optical design to provide high contrast from image center to periphery.
Smooth Backgrounds: The combination of large F2.8 aperture and circular aperture design delivers smooth, natural defocusing effects.
SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor): Autofocus signals received from the camera body control a motor built into the lens. The internal motor directly drives the focusing group for smooth autofocus operation.
