This is a multi-purpose zoom lens with excellent mobility and speed, not to mention lens performance such as color balance, covering a range of focal lengths from 85mm, which could be considered standard, to super telephoto 300mm.

In addition to reducing the overall length of the lens and the closest focusing distance, emphasis has been placed on eliminating spherical aberration and coma aberration, providing high-contrast, high-resolution definition at all focal lengths.
