    Ultra-wide F1.8 for stills and movies

    With an 11 mm (35mm full-frame equivalent: 16.5 mm) focal length for dynamic images and a large F1.8 aperture for deep bokeh, this 181-gram (6.4 oz.) APS-C format lens has the mobility you need to capture stunning stills and movies anywhere. It also features two linear motors for fast, precise AF that supports both stills and movies.

    Deep, expressive bokeh

    Deep, expressive bokeh

    A large F1.8 max. aperture delivers expressive bokeh in deep, impressive images.ย 0.12 meter (0.4 ft)ย minimum focus and 0.2x maximum magnification let you get close to the subject while producing beautifully defocused backgrounds. Precisely controlled spherical aberration and a 7-blade circular aperture contribute significantly to this lensโ€™s sensational bokeh.

    This versatile lensโ€™s ultra-wide 11 mm angle of view is a great choice for landscapes, architecture, interiors, and even vlogging. It offers unique visual perspectives for a wide range of subjects and situations.

    Excellent ultra-wide resolution

    Excellent ultra-wide resolution

    Innovative optics deliver high resolution right out to the image edges. Optimal placement of three aspherical elements ideally corrects field curvature for excellent resolution throughout the image area. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration and colour fringing for superb image quality.

    Compact, lightweight freedom

    Compact, lightweight freedom

    This compact, lightweight lens is a perfect match for APS-C camera bodies, providing easy handling that is great for long handheld or grip-mounted shooting sessions. Spherical and aspherical elements combine to achieve stunning optical performance in a lens that is only 66 x 57.5 mm (2-5/8 x 2-3/8 in.) and weighs only 181 g (6.4 oz.)ย 

    Advanced AF maximises body speed potential

    Advanced AF maximises body speed potential

    Two linear motors give this large-aperture lens impressively fast, precise autofocus and tracking performance for both stills and movies. AF and tracking are so responsive that the full speed potential of the body used can be fully realized so that even fast or erratically moving subjects can be reliably captured.

    A versatile tool for movie shooters

    A versatile tool for movie shooters

    An 11 mm field of view and large F1.8 aperture make it easy to shoot subjects against sweeping backgrounds with beautiful bokeh. That also makes this lens ideal for vlogging. Unlike many large-aperture ultra-wide designs, this unique design allows the use of front filters for extra creative flexibility in a wide range of shooting situations.

    Refined movies with minimal breathing

    Refined movies with minimal breathing

    State-of-the-art lens technology packed into this remarkable large-aperture ultra-wide lens reduces unwanted focus breathing and angle of view shifts when focusing to facilitate high-quality movie recording and smooth, refined expression.

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    For professional manual focusing feel and response, Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle manual control. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills and movies.
