The lens is capable of 1:1 reproduction, which means that the subject in front of the lens is depicted on the sensor in its actual size.
At 1:1 magnification reproduction (focusing distance of 30cm) the working distance between the lens and the subject is 11.53cm which can make the photographer feel more comfortable.
The fast aperture of F/2.8, which can only be changed electronically, remains constant even when the lens is fully extracted and focused at 30cm (1:1 magnification), and in overall provides excellent performance even when working on low light conditions.
Due to its macro specifications, the lens has extremely high resolution, low distortion and low falloff, and besides macro/close-up shooting, can also be used for landscape photography, art reproduction, even on astrophotography, something that adds many positive points to the lens usage versatility.
The produced bokeh is soft and beautiful so the lens is also a great choice for portrait photographers as well.
