Because this telephoto lens offers perspective very similar to the human eye providing natural expression, it has similar characteristics to a standard lens with a wide range of applications such as portrait shooting and being perfect for faithfully recreating perspective.

It is also designed with an emphasis on good blur particularly at maximum aperture by sufficiently eliminating astigmatism and coma aberration throughout the entire frame despite its large aperture.
