(1) Product features

・High resolving power

With a construction of 8 groups and 11 elements, using one aspherical lens and two ED lenses, the “GF45mmF2.8 R WR" delivers high image quality and reduces aberrations. By adopting an inner focus system which moves the six lenses, the lens is able to deliver high quality images while reducing fluctuations of the aberrations caused by the change of shooting distance. The lens is even able to reduce ghosting and flare, caused by incident light from diagonal angles, and produce clear images, thanks to the use of Nano GI coating.

・Compact and Lightweight design weighing only 490g

With a maximum diameter ofφ84mm, a length of 88mm and weighing only 490g, this lens combines a compact and lightweight design with the best possible image quality.

・Dust and weather resistant, capable of operating in environments as cold as -10°C

The lens has been sealed in ten areas, allowing you to shoot with confidence, even in dusty environments or in light rain.

・High operability

The aperture ring has a C position (command dial mode) on the camera body that allows the lens aperture value to be changed to suit the photographer’s preference. A locking mechanism has been added to the A (Auto) and C positions to prevent unintended movements of the aperture dial.
