This new lens offers a 28mm equivalent field of view, with a fast f/2.5 maximum aperture. It's comprised of 6 lenses in 5 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses, and measures just 20.5mm.

With a 35mm equivalent focal range of 70-200mm, it offers a nice mid telephoto coverage that is great for portraits, close-up photography, etc. With their proven MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) system, you can be confident that your hand-held photos will be sharp and free of blur from camera shake.

Pricing and availability is to be announced at a later date.
