The ultra-compact FE 40mm F2.5 G lens measures 68mm diameter x 45mm and weighs in at only 173g. This makes it ideal for both APS-C as well as full-frame camera users. Its ultra-compact size and lightweight balances well on smaller APS-C format bodies, providing a very useful mid-range focal length of 60mm (full-frame format equivalent). This super small lens is also ideal for full-frame users wanting a standard 40mm field of view who prize compact size and weight to reduce their load, especially for those photographers and videographers who travel a lot.
Get a unique perspective through close-up, wide-angle shooting. The standard 40mm angle of view is useful in applications from snapshots to movie shooting. The FE 40mm F2.5 G features an impressive minimum focus distance of 11.02” (0.28m) (AF) / 9.84” (0.25m) (MF) and maximum magnification of 0.2x (AF) / 0.24x (MF). With the wide F2.5 max. aperture, you can also shoot close-ups with beautiful blurred background bokeh.
While conventional aperture blades have flat sides that create unappealing, polygonal-shaped defocused points of light, the FE 40mm F2.5 G incorporates a 7-blade circular aperture mechanism to maximizes the beauty of this large-aperture prime-lens.
Taking full advantage of the continuing rapid advances in the speed and performance of newer camera bodies, two linear motors are used in the FE 40mm F2.5 G lens to deliver fast, precise AF (autofocus) with excellent tracking performance. Tracking is maintained despite instantaneous changes in subject motion, making the lens ideal for situations that require tracking a moving subject.
Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise in both still and movie modes.
