Di lenses are designed for superior use on both digital and film SLR cameras. The optical system also, incorporates a LD (Low Dispersion) lens, resulting in clear sharp images free of chromatic aberration.
This lens delivers ultimate handling, ease and portability in the field due to its lightweight size and mechanical operation. It is best suited for shooting outdoors to make full use of the real telephoto of 300mm as well as providing diversity in portraiture using the medium focal length ranges of 70mm to 135mm.
