Lens construction – 15 elements in 12 groups:

  • 2 Aspherical lenses
  • 2 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
  • 1 Extra-Low Dispersion lens

Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight to effectively prevent spherical and distortion aberration. Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) and Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration to render sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
