Together with the FE 24mm f/2.8 and 40mm f/2.5 G lenses, these three lenses form a cohesive trio with similar styling, image quality, and ergonomics:
All lenses prioritize a compact profile with an emphasis on intuitive handling; each features a manual aperture ring along with other tactile controls.
The three lenses share the same 49mm filter ring diameter.
Matched aluminium finish with stylish focal length and aperture engravings, both aperture and focusing rings, and matching metal lens hoods.
G Lens Series
Two aspherical elements promote more uniform sharpness across the frame by suppressing spherical aberrations and distortions.
One extra-low dispersion glass element controls colour fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and colour fidelity.
Rounded 7-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Focus Control for Stills and Video
Two linear motors deliver quick and accurate autofocus performance, along with capable subject tracking for working with fast-moving subjects. This AF system is also especially quiet to suit its use for cine applications.
Internal focusing design limits the overall length of the lens for faster, more responsive focusing.
Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
Customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
Impressive close-up performance for working with close-up subjects; this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 12.2" with MF (13.8" with AF), which results in a 0.21x maximum magnification.
The physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
The lens measures 1.8" and weighs 6.2 oz, making it a great portable choice that's well-suited to both full-frame and APS-C bodies.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
The fluorine-coated front element is easy to clean and resists dust, moisture, and fingerprints.
