fine control over depth of field for compelling portrait photography.
Excellent background bokeh
A circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh
when isolating subjects at large apertures.
Fast, quiet auto focus
A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive
extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and
optimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Good holding torque
stops the focusing lens group without overshoot. Full time electronic manual
focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.
Super Spectra coatings
Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting
- more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image
sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for
vivid hi-fidelity images.

The lens passes distance information back to the camera's E-TTL II flash system
to ensure optimal flash metering in any shooting situation.
