This is a standard lens for enabling shooting at an angle of view near the natural human visual field and is ideal as a regular-use lens for shooting snapshots, landscapes, portraits, and a variety of other subjects.
High delineation performance
This lens uses hybrid aspherical lenses for correcting various types of aberration and providing a sharp image quality with high contrast from the minimum to maximum distances and delineation performance up to the edges with an open aperture. Also, this lens uses a ghostless coating for minimizing flare and ghosting that can effect imaging performance for enabling the shooting of clear, high-contrast images even under backlighting and other adverse conditions.
