At f/2, this lens has the widest aperture of any zoom lens in our lineup. It's very useful in low light situations, weddings, street photography, and landscapes. The focal length range is not large, but it is useful for framing photos while shooting to avoid cropping in post-processing. It is well liked by photographers who prefer to shoot at 35mm, but sometimes need it a little wider field of view. It performs very well in the areas of colors, chromatic aberration, distortion, and contrast. It's compatible with full-frame and cropped-frame cameras. The diaphragm has 9 rounded blades for beautiful bokeh. It has an internal hyper-sonic auto-focus motor with instant manual override.
