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.
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.
