It also produces a stunningly beautiful defocus together with the large MOS Sensor. In addition, a 9-blade aperture diaphragm helps to produce bokeh with smooth, circular shapes. The versatile zoom range of 24-75mm (35mm camera equiv.) is suitable for wide-ranging photography from portraits snapshots to stunning 24mm ultra-wide angle landscapes.
