Capture subjects with greater clarity

Inside, three UD lenses correct chromatic aberration while a Super Spectra coating reduces ghosting and flare. A Nano USM keeps moving subjects in sharp focus, providing fast, quiet and accurate AF while a nine-blade aperture gives you beautiful background rendering.
