This 3x standard zoom lens is the smallest and lightest in its class and features a closest focusing distance of only 1 inch. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion)and two aspherical lens elements correct aberrations without increasing lens dimensions.
The circular aperture diaphragm enables beautiful defocusing - one of the big advantages of this lens. Excellent mobility is assured by a weight of less than 7 oz. (200g).
