Canon EF 35mm Prime Lens Unveiled

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM prime will be the first lens to feature Canon’s proprietary Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics technology (BR Optics).

The new EF 35mm offers a wide angle view, superb low-light performance, fast focus and the ability to shoot in even the harshest of conditions…

Blue Spectrum Refractive optics:

“Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics) incorporate a new organic optical material with unique anomalous dispersion characteristics for use in camera lenses. The molecular design of BR Optics refracts blue light (short wavelength spectrum) to a greater degree than other existing optical technologies including UD glass, Super UD glass and Fluorite, to control color fringing as effectively as possible. When placed between convex and concave lens elements made from conventional optical glass materials, BR Optics help to produce sharp images with outstanding contrast and color fidelity by thoroughly reducing axial chromatic aberration.”
