Product description
Announced Feb 23, 2015

Manufacturer description: The new 42.5mm lens is available in sharp metallic black and silver, and delivers beautiful defocus to help you add more artistry and creativity into your photography. Offering a 42.5mm middle-telephoto focal distance (35mm camera equivalent: 85mm equivalent to 85mm on a 35mm camera), a high speed F1.7 aperture, and a versatile focusing distance of 0.31 m, the lens can deliver portraits with a rich stereoscopic effect as well as close-ups with beautiful defocus.

The lens’ POWER O.I.S. system effectively compensates unwanted blur caused by handshake - not only small, fast movements but also large, slow ones - helping you get the results you want, even in low light situations. The POWER O.I.S system, alongside the 240fps Drive AF, delivers stable framing and precise focusing every time.
