The impressively fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a great degree of control over depth of field for isolating subjects and producing desirable selective focus effects. Its complementing qualities are a sophisticated optical composition, which includes one aspherical element to suppress spherical aberrations in order to achieve notable sharpness and clarity.
The Super Spectra coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting and promote greater contrast and color accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions. A ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control. This lens is sealed against dust and moisture gives high-performance and delivers all the superb image resolution and contrast.
Large f/1.2 Aperture
The large maximum aperture of f/1.2 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.
Excellent Background Bokeh
A circular aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh, ideal for isolating subjects at large apertures and for compelling portrait photography.
Super Spectra coating
The Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. It also reduce flare and ghosting a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera’s sensor.
