The lens can be used for many subjects in various shooting scenes as it covers frequently used angles of view. These include wide angle, often used for shooting landscapes and architecture with an excellent sense of perspective (27mm*), a normal angle of view that naturally captures the image as is (35mm*, 40mm*, 50mm*), and telephoto, which symbolically cuts out portraits and sports scenes (85mm*, 135mm*, 200mm* with its 7.5x zoom.
In order to realize high descriptive performance with sharpness and rich contrast from wide angle to telephoto, high-performance glass materials including 4 aspherical glass lenses and 2 ED glass lenses are used. Multi-layer coating HT-EBC, which has high permeability (99.8%) and low reflectance (0.2%), is applied to the entire lens to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting, which often occur in backlight conditions. Utilizing the wide zoom range of the lens, there is more freedom in composition and selecting angles.
