Developed based on the Limited Lens series — renowned for the meticulous finish in every detail from the outstanding image rendition to the high-quality, hand-machined aluminum body — these new lenses assure even better optical performance than the original Limited Lens-series models. They are treated with the HD coating, which assures much higher light transmittance than conventional multi-layer coatings to deliver sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost images, even under such demanding conditions as backlight. They also feature a completely round-shaped diaphragm to produce a natural, beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus) effect in the foreground and background.
With an overall length of only 1 inch and weight of a mere 131g, this highly portable lens offers high-performance optics with edge-to-edge sharpness, and depth of field control.
High-grade HD coating for exceptional image rendition
High-grade HD coating assures higher light transmittance and lower reflectance than conventional multi-layer coatings. Sharper, clear images free of flare and ghosting, even under adverse lighting conditions and backlight.
* HD stands for High Definition, and signifies the lens’s capacity to reproduce images that excel in transparency, definition, resolution and rendition.
Round-shaped diaphragm for beautiful out-of-focus rendition
Upgraded with a round 9 blades diaphragm at a wide aperture for optimal optic performance and gorgeous bokeh effects.
Premium quality of the Limited Lens-series
While inheriting the design concept of the Limited Lens series, these lenses were designed by combining a series of mechanical and numerical evaluations with human assessment of test-shooting samples to assure the ultimate in image reproduction. Their optical design has been optimized for digital photography to deliver sharp, clear images with outstanding contrast, even at the maximum aperture. In addition, their lens barrel, hood and cap are all made of a high-grade aluminum material, hand-machined for perfect proportions and beautiful texture.
