The macro lens features a 2X maximum magnification and a 19.1cm / 7.51″ minimum focusing distance.
The lens weighs in at approx. 600g / 21.16 ox and it has physical dimensions of 68mm x 118mm (ø x L). It utilizes a 62mm front filter thread.
The lens’s optical design consists of 11 elements in 8 groups, including three high refractive index elements that are claimed to help to control spherical aberrations and reduce distortion. The lens also features a 10-blade iris and a de-clicked aperture ring.
It is worth noting that while it is designed for use with APS-C formats, the lens can also be used with some full-frame cameras. On full-frame cameras, there will be slight vignetting when shooting at infinity.
