[New] Astro-Focus Mode for Astrophotography
The AF 24mm F1.8 FE lens features a new function titled “Astro-Focus Mode” with an “LED index” for astrophotography. The “Astro-Focus Mode” can be operated through the newly-designed Focus Hold button. Once the user enters the Astro-Focus Mode, the LED index will blink once, and the focus will automatically move to the infinity position. *Users can save their own focus position with the focus hold button.
[New] Focus Hold Button & Custom Switch to Maximize Usability
Customizable Focus Hold Button
Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. The user can also assign other desired functions to the focus hold button through the menu setting on the camera body.
Equipped with the Custom Switch, shooting and operation is more intuitive and simple. You can easily select various functions such as Aperture Control Mode or MF Mode from the Switch, and enjoy the shooting mode that suits your personal preference. *More functions will be added through firmware update in the future.
Compact & Lightweight with Modern Design
The AF 24mm F1.8 FE weighs only 230g(8.1oz) and 71.5mm(2.8in) in length. Small size and lightweight enhance mobility when used with compact E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its matte finishing with the laser engraved font provides better readability and the tactile mounting index adds to the convenience of the users. Also features weather sealing for 5 spots to protect from light dust, rain and snow and provide the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions.
VERSATILITY LENS FOR EVERYWHERE
24mm Focal Length can Be Used for Landscapes, Indoors, and Even Snaps
The 24mm F1.8 FE lens provides a wide-angle of view of 83.7˚ and a short minimum focusing distance of 0.19m(0.62ft). Which allows you to take photos in various environments, whether indoors or outdoors. Combined with this wide-angle lens, you can freely create your own perspective with creativity.
Shallow Depth of Field with Large Aperture F1.8
The AF 24mm F1.8 FE has a fast F1.8 aperture for crisp focus and beautifully blurred backgrounds. It gives you full control over depth-of-field so that you can isolate your subject and the background, and the 9-blade circular aperture which contributes smooth, creamy, natural-looking bokeh.
Advanced Fast and Quiet AF for Stills and Movies
Now Autofocus needs to consider not only how more accurately and quickly it captures images, but also how quiet and smooth it is. The AF 24mm F1.8 FE features the latest STM(Stepping Motor), a larger and heavier focus lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing excellent image quality in both photos and videos.
