IT DOESN’T GET SHARPER THAN THIS
Achieve high image quality with lower sensitivities and enjoy the freedom of using faster shutter speeds to control subject blur, even in darker environments, with the lens’ constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire 14mm to 24mm zoom range. With the Z mount system’s large diameter and short flange focal distance, experience superior resolution all the way to the extreme edges of the frame.WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
Faithfully reproduce what you see in world around you. Whether you’re capturing starscapes or nightscapes, effectively control sagittal coma flare, even at maximum aperture, with the adoption of three aspherical elements with four aspherical surfaces. Deliver sharper resolution without colour fringing, especially in landscapes, with the four ED glass elements that also effectively reduces axial chromatic aberration. Shoot stunning sunrises and sunsets in all their glory with outstanding backlight resistance, thanks to the Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat that effectively suppresses ghosting and flares regardless of which direction the light enters the lens.SILENCE IS GOLDEN
Be confident when it comes to making movies and shoot in the same edge-to-edge quality as you do with photos. An autofocus (AF) mechanism using a stepping motor (STM) and a buttonless control ring makes this lens quieter than ever for the ultimate shooting experience during events.BE IN CONTROL
Easily adjust a variety of functions for an all-round smooth and comfortable user experience with the multipurpose control ring. Plus, if you’re moving across multiple lighting environments during your shoot, like from indoors to outdoors, the precise aperture control and consistent stable exposure control (AE) from the lens’ electro-magnetic aperture mechanism effectively stabilises exposure during continuous shooting.
A FAMILIAR KIND OF FUNCTIONALITY
Feel a sense of familiarity and be in control with a functionality and layout similar to previous models, so you can focus on capturing your scenes. Supporting two types of filters, the conventional screw-on and rear gel, as well as two lens hood options for direct filter attachment and regular lens hood, means this lens can easily adapts to your needs. An easy-to-read information panel displays information such as aperture value, shooting distance and depth of field, making it great for when it’s mounted on a tripod. Customise as you please with the lens function (L-Fn) button that allows you to quickly access your preferred modes.
TOUGHER THAN IT LOOKS
Don’t be afraid to take this lens on your adventures. An enhanced durability with superior dust and drip-resistant2 performance, this lens is well sealed against the elements. Effectively repelling any fouling or potential contaminants, the fluorine coating applied to the outer surface of the lens element makes cleaning a breeze.
