The wide f/1.8 aperture that narrows down to f/22 along with the seven circular aperture blades provides outstanding out of focus range. While capturing the shots, the 7x circular aperture blades produces smooth, rounded "bokeh" background effects. The elements of this lens are directly controlled by the Smooth Autofocus Motor for faster and smoother autofocus.
The autofocus control signals are sent from the camera to the lens-mounted unit that drives the lens directly and helps to assure accurate and quick AF response. The Extra-low dispersion glass reduces the chromatic aberrations and produces sharper images by correcting the specific wavelengths. The filter attachment of this portrait lens measures 49mm.
