This ultra-high-speed wide-angle lens is ideal for photojournalism assignments under extreme lighting conditions.

High contrast and precise detail rendition are ensured even at full aperture.

And in critical lighting situations, such as when shooting into the sun or with strong light sources in the frame, disturbing reflections and glare are eliminated.

Coma is practically non-existent, distortion is negligible for a lens of this type.

Floating elements provide outstanding imaging even close up. And its high speed and relatively short focal length allow spontaneous handheld shooting where there is very little light.

The wide f/1.4 aperture also results in a very bright viewfinder image, and enhances the ability to use selective focus aesthetically.
