DC (DC for Digital)
These are special lenses designed for APS-C size sensors so that the image circle matches the smaller size of the image sensor of most digital SLR cameras. Their specialized design gives these lenses the ideal properties for digital cameras, the compact and lightweight construction is an added bonus!
HSM (High Speed Motor)
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, high-speed AF.
IF (Inner Focus)
To ensure stability in focusing, this lens moves the inner lens group(s) without changing the lens' physical length.
