The 45mm format is the closest approximation to human field of vision and captures high-resolution shots to an unparalleled degree of resolving power. Furthermore, the integration of VC into a 45mm fast standard prime lens for full-frame DSLR cameras is an industry-first*.

Compose an image at will, without regard to shooting distance or ambient lighting constraints – to produce crisp, tack sharp images from F/1.8 full open aperture. The unique synthesis of a VC system in a 45mm lens with a best-in-class MOD of 0.29m** redefines standard distance shooting – freeing the photographer to discover another dimension of personal style.

The open aperture is set to F/1.8 with optimized critical properties at a higher level: superb optical performance coupled with a VC system, a shorter MOD, and a well-balanced form factor. Rigorous simulation processes performed throughout the design phase are materialized in distinguished resolving power and beautifully-tuned background blur, a prominent feature to a fast-aperture, full-frame compliant optic.

Closest Focusing Distance in its Class

The SP 45mm (MOD: 0.29m) offers best-in-class close focusing*.

A floating system design feature seamlessly optimizes image quality by shifting elements relative to the focus group in close shooting situations.

Focal length: 45mm Exposure: F/1.8 1/320sec
VC (Vibration Compensation) Integration, Setting Itself Apart
Focal length: 45mm Exposure: F/3.2 1/40sec

VC deployed on fast-aperture lenses dramatically enhances freedom of hand-held shooting under lime light or dim room light conditions by eliminating minute camera shake. In particular, cameras with high-pixel density imagers tend to pick up subtle vibrations, resulting in degradation of image quality.

VC is an excellent attribute to acquire inherent high-fidelity images. 45mm is the very first lens that employs the VC functionality among the fast standard fixed focal lenses in full-frame format.*
