The lens is remarkably small and compact for a full frame cine zoom lens that is this wide.

The lens weighs just 799g / 1.75 lb which makes it almost half the weight of the 28-75mm and 75-180mm.

The optical construction of the lens consists of 18 elements in 12 groups.

It has pretty well controlled distortion for such a wide focal length.
