If you primarily photograph athletes and wild animals, you will find the performance of this lens ideal, thanks to impressive specifications such as a bright f/4 aperture and the ultra-telephoto 500mm focal length. This lens, with 11 elements in 10 groups, was specially developed to deliver beautiful background and foreground defocusing. Its smooth circular aperture, formed by 9 aperture blades, contributes to rounder, more beautiful bokeh. A Nano AR Coating and velvet lining also minimize flare, eliminate opacity and tighten blacks. Furthermore, three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements compensate for color aberration to realize sharper image quality.
