Aspheric and UD elements
High image quality has been assured with the addition of two high-precision aspheric lenses to correct aberration including curvature of field and distortion. Chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting is also combated by the inclusion of two UD lenses, ensuring optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail.
Canon’s patented lens element coating minimises the ghosting and flare caused by reflections off the image sensor and internal lens surfaces. Light transmission is improved and reflections are reduced to deliver clear, crisp images.
