Comprising of seven lenses in five groups, the lens system uses two aspherical lenses most effectively to minimise both distortion and chromatic aberrations, achieving super high-resolution corner to corner. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings.
