Compact. Bright. Essential.

This high-resolution, large-aperture zoom offers incredible versatility from wide angle to mid-range telephoto shots. It’s even great for macro photography. Put it in your gear bag and you’ll find yourself reaching for it over and over again. Even with all that imaging power, it’s still lightweight and compact enough to comfortably fit in your hand. The IP53-rating means its highly weathersealed so you can shoot without worry in the most adverse conditions. One of the most versatile lenses you’ll ever own.

Bright F2.8

With a bright, fast F2.8 aperture you’ll be able to achieve a shallow depth of field with exceptional sharpness even in low light. It’s perfect for shooting landscapes, wildlife, people and even macro photography without a tripod. It’s one lens you can use in a variety of environments that delivers outstanding image quality every time.

14 elements in 9 groups

There’s lots of world-class glass inside. You’ll find 14 elements configured in 9 groups. There’s EDA. DSA, HD, HR. ED and x4 aspherical lenses that are all configured to keep your images free from any aberrations and flares that traditionally come from zooming. Your images will be high resolution from the center to the edges.

Zero coating

Besides being built with some of the world’s finest glass, we apply an advanced coating that suppresses ghosting and flares.

Fluorine coating

When your lens gets wet, you need to wipe it clean before taking the next shot. A fluorine coating lets you get rid of the water quickly. One wipe and its gone. No streaking or waterdrops left behind. You’ll clean your lens quickly and more efficiently so you’ll get back to shooting faster.

Built to overcome tough shooting challenges

Designed for you

If you do a lot of shooting outdoors, you’ll appreciate that it’s built to be tough and durable. It features all-metal construction so it can handle plenty of bumps and jolts. Just holding it in your hand conveys exceptional quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail. It was made with the very latest manufacturing technologies that works with pinpoint precision so you can work at your best.

IP53 Dustproof and splashproof

Sometimes you have to shoot in less than perfect conditions. You could use a rain jacket and carry around extra gear. Or shoot with our IP53-rated lens and not worry about the conditions. It’s splashproof and dustproof. You can also use it in below freezing temperatures down to -10°C. That’s because its protected by an advanced system of seals that keeps you working no matter how harsh it gets out there.
