Built-in hood

This helps to re­duce ghost­ing and flare, but its main ben­e­fit is that it pro­tects the lens’s bul­bous front el­e­ment.

HSM aut­o­fo­cus

Ring-type ul­tra­sonic or ‘hy­per­sonic’ AF is fairly rapid and whis­per-quiet. It also has a full-time man­ual over­ride fa­cil­ity in ‘sin­gle’ aut­o­fo­cus mode.

Mount­ing plate

The metal mount­ing plate in­cludes a built-in holder for the in­ser­tion of gel fil­ters.
