Motorised Zoom Mechanism - enables a smooth and constant-rate lens-zooming action, for professional-looking videos. To zoom, you simply twist the zoom ring one way to zoom in; and the other to zoom out. The more you twist, the faster your rate of zoom. This gives more control and greater fluidity to zooming in your video footage.
24-100mm (35mm film format equivalent) Focal Length - provides an extremely versatile super wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom capability, giving it superb credentials as a standard lens. Its non-telescoping lens barrel is fully sealed against dust and moisture.
High Performance Optics - Dual Super Aspherical, Aspherical, ED and HR glass. A floating lens design optimises internal lens-element positioning throughout the zoom and focus distances, to maximise imaging performance at all capture distances.
Fast, Silent MSC Autofocus - features enhanced MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) focusing technology that utilises a newly designed linear motor for fast, silent autofocus.
Special Macro Mode - for close up shooting at up to 0.72x magnification (35mm camera equivalent).
