L-series wide-angle single focus lens introduces Canon's newly-developed optical element, BR Optics*, which helps produce impressively high quality images by helping to maximize performance and reduce chromatic aberration.
Two aspheric lenses and one UD lens help provide a high level of image quality.
Improved durability for use in harsh environments helps ensure reliability and dependability.
Subwavelength Coating (SWC) helps significantly reduce lens ghosting and flare.
Shortest minimum focusing distance in its class (0.28m) and increased maximum magnification (0.21x) help expand the range of expression, especially when capturing close-up subjects.
Fluorine coating on front and rear lens surfaces helps reduce smears and fingerprints.
