15 elements in 12 groups:
– 2 aspherical lenses
– 2 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
– 1 Extra-Low Dispersion lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) and Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the centre of the corrected image.
