    Get creative with beautiful highlights and bokeh

    Experiment with out-of-focus highlights thanks to a 7-blade near-circular aperture and use the telephoto power and a wide aperture to achieve a shallower depth-of-field to separate your subject, capturing beautiful bokeh with extra depth and impact

    Smooth, quiet focusing with instinctive control

    Switch quickly between different modes to shoot and film like a pro thanks to a combined lens control and manual focus ring. An STM focusing motor on the lens works virtually silently
