Now Autofocus needs to consider not only how more accurately and quickly it captures images, but also how quiet and smooth it is. Thanks to the newly researched and developed Linear STM (Stepping Motor), a larger and heavier focus lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing excellent image quality in photos and videos.
This new Tiny Series lens, the AF 35mm F1.8 FE, features weather sealing for 4 spots to protect from light dust, rain and snow and provide the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions.
I know, I know, for someone who likes his bed (and has two young children, so 8 hours sleep is a rarity) astrophotography must be hard work. And yes, yes, it is. Landscape photography is all about sunsets and sunrises. Well, just sunsets really, as sunrises are faaaaar too early (children, again playing a part in this). Maybe a few hours out, enjoying some sunshine, setting up, taking some images, going home, sounds easy, right?
