More than a macro lens

Being able to focus infinity, the 58mm focal length (40.9° AoV) pair with the f/2.8 aperture give the lens more usage than just a macro lens. You can also use it for portrait, product photography or use as walk-around lens.

No More Chromatic Aberration

The lens is engineered to suppress both longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration across in-focus & out-of-focus areas. Purple fringing and ghosting are controlled to the minimum throughout the aperture range. The APO design greatly reduces your post-editing time substantially especially in macro photography.

Deeper Depth, Better Focus Control

The 58mm would give a greater depth of field relative to other longer focal length lenses. You can get more in-focus area of your subject under the same aperture. This gives you more control when creating unique visual narratives.
