Ability to shoot close-up, 5cm from the lens tip
Using the widest angle position, the lens allows photographers to shoot subjects which are around 5cm from the end of the lens, achieving a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.24. This lens is ideal for those wanting to take close-up shots of food, flowers or small accessories.
Electric zoom and comfortable operation
Creating a small, collapsible lens has been made possible by utilizing an electric zoom. When the camera is switched on, the lens automatically extends ready for shooting.
Two different zoom speeds can be selected by the rotating of the zoom ring. The lens moves position at a constant speed, producing smooth zooming motion when shooting movies.
Optical image stabilization
The electric zoom includes 3.0-stop optical image stabilization technology compatible with CIPA guidelines, which assists photographers shooting in low light conditions.
Fast and silent autofocus
The inner focusing AF system uses a stepping motor to drive lightweight focusing elements for a fast and silent autofocus performance.
