APO Design

The freshly designed 13 elements in 9 groups optical structure contains 3 extra-low dispersion elements which eliminates the colour fringing at both in-focus and out-of-focus areas. Rendering stunning magnified pictures without chromatic aberration would be an extra convenience to photographers as it saves much time and effort on post production.

Internal Focusing

The internal focusing design avoids collision of the lens and the objects. It also prevents the dust or ashes from falling into the lens.
