As a G Master lens, optical performance is prioritized and the 14mm
f/1.8 emphasizes both sharpness and bokeh quality for versatility
regardless of subject distance or aperture setting.
An XD Linear Motor system uses two separate motors to provide quick,
quiet, and precise autofocus and tracking performance. This design also
contributes to more natural, intuitive Linear Response manual focus
control and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for quick
focus mode switching.
Beyond outstanding optics, G Master lenses are also known for durable
and reliable physical constructions, including extensive weather sealing
and intuitive designs for easy operability. Also, specific to this 14mm
f/1.8, it features a uniquely compact and lightweight design, measuring
3.3 x 3.9" and weighing just one pound.
