  • 10 elements form nine groups
  • Seven circular aperture blades for beautiful bokeh 
  • Compact lens is only 2.5 inches in length
  • Minimum focusing distance: 4.3 inches
  • 67mm filter diameter is the same as the Tamron full-frame mirrorless lenses, making it easy to share filters

  • Weight: 0.48 lbs 

The ultra-wide close-focusing prime will be available at the end of the month for $350.
