Designed To Prioritize Optical Performance—
With Absolutely No Compromises
With resolution so crystal-clear that individual hairs can be discerned in a portrait, this large-diameter lens also delivers a beautiful bokeh effect, giving photographers everything they need. It performs better than typical large-diameter standard to medium telephoto lenses in producing close-ups and full-body shots in which the subject stands out against a pleasantly blurred background.
The Large HSM Delivers Highly Responsive Autofocus
The large hypersonic motor (HSM) delivers ample torque to the focusing group for utstanding speed, ensuring exceptionally stable performance even at lower speeds. Along with the optimized AF algorithm, this feature delivers fast autofocus photography. In addition, the focus limiter makes AF highly responsive to distance from the subject for even more nimble performance.
Ideal For Portraits Requiring A Dramatic Bokeh Effect
The 135mm focal length paired with F1.8 brightness delivers a stunning compression effect: even fairly close to the subject, the telephoto ring allows the photographer to establish a variety of dramatic perspectives. The compression effect truly shines in both close-ups and full-length portraits, making composition easy and have an impressive bokeh background.
