A classic lens for portraiture either indoor or outdoor. Large f/2 maximum aperture is very helpful in shooting indoor sports or stage productions in dim light. Subtle blurring of the background for beautifully natural and evocative pictures. Exceptionally compact and light for a telephoto lens.
Focuses down to a close 0.85m (3ft.). 5 elements in 5 groups. 28° 30′, Distance scale: graduated in meters and feet from 0.5m (3ft.) to infinity (∞). Weight: 310g. Accepts HS-10 lens hood, CL-31S hard case, No. 61 soft pouch. Usable teleconverter: TC-200 & TC-201. Coating slightly worn away on rear of barrel in a few places – quite subtle to the eye.
