This lens features innovations that make every shot truly spectacular. Its wide f/2.8 maximum aperture produces excellent bokeh that isolates your subject with stunning results. Extra-low Dispersion glass and Nano Crystal Coat eliminate ghosting, flare and chromatic aberrations to deliver superior images in any lighting.
