Internal Focusing Technology

With Internal Focusing technology, all lens movement takes place inside the lens housing. Changing the focus does not affect the length of the device, providing greater comfort and optimal stability. This solution will surely be appreciated by those who use filters, sunshades or other accessories that can be screwed onto the lens. Internal Focusing will also better protect the lens from dust which is more difficult to get inside the device, compared to designs offering “external focusing”.

The lens’ apochromatic construction is designed for the best image quality drawn.
