This lens has an angle of view that is close to the natural field of view of the human eye and is suitable for a wide array of photography including landscapes and portraits.

This is a single focal point lens that has a focal length equivalent to 39mm in the 35mm film format when the Q7 is attached. This can be used as a standard lens for shooting at an angle of view that is close to the natural field of view of the human eye, and it is suitable as a regular-use lens for shooting a wide range of subjects, including landscape photography and portraits. The open F value is bright at F1.9 for enabling shooting even in dim locations, and photography with blurred backgrounds is easy to perform. The optical system uses two high-performance aspherical lenses for effectively correcting various types of aberration and also providing enough light intensity at the edges and enabling high resolutions.
