Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.

 

No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.

 

Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.

 

Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.

 

No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

This super fast wide-angle lens has been a benchmark product since its launch. It is highly compact, and from maximum aperture on down it delivers outstanding picture quality. Its ultra-fine detail rendition yields pictures of extraordinary plasticity. Even under critical lighting situations, such as when shooting into the light, disturbing reflections and diffusion are largely eliminated. With its 75° wide angle, it captures a wide enough frame for lively reportage situations. The high aperture of f/2.0 enables creative selective focus to be employed even for wide-angle shots. And this lens is particularly recommended when shooting in difficult lighting conditions, such as at dusk or in dimly lit rooms with no flash.
