    Product Description

    The 35-150mm F2-2.8 covers wide-angle through telephoto and is ideal for both travel and portrait photography.

Incorporating the most frequently used focal lengths from wide-angle and standard to medium telephoto and telephoto all within this single lens enables seamless shooting without the need to swap lenses, which is beneficial especially when shooting portraits where a sense of rhythm is particularly important and helps to capture outstanding shots without missing fleeting expressions of the subject. This lens features a very high-speed and high-precision autofocus for a fast-aperture lens. It also incorporates a new design in the pursuit of enhanced operability and ergonomic convenience.
