MA fo­cus ring

Un­like ring-type ul­tra­sonic AF lenses, it doesn’t fea­ture full-time man­ual over­ride. A con­trol ring en­ables easy switch­ing be­tween auto and man­ual fo­cus modes.

Fo­cus dis­tance scale

Po­si­tioned be­neath a view­ing panel, the fo­cus dis­tance scale in­cludes depth of field mark­ings for f/11 and f/16.

Aper­ture ring

Lock­ing the aper­ture at its nar­row­est f/16 set­ting en­ables aper­ture com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and en­sures that the aper­ture can be set in-cam­era. The lens’s beau­ti­ful bokeh is partly down to the fact that it boasts a nicely-rounded, nine-blade aper­ture.
