Let's face it. If you take a lot of photos, you treasure one word more than any other when you show your work to people. That word is "wow."

Everyone wants to find a way towards more wows. And we think this lens will be a great start in that direction. It features a generous, expansive wide angle that's perfect for sweeping landscapes, city panoramas, or your group of friends posing together in your cozy living room. Plus, the wide f/2.0 aperture lets you work with the light that's available, and with its shallow depth of field at maximum aperture, it can enhance depth in pictures with a big subject in the foreground. Pop this lens on the front of your camera and start collecting more wows per shutter click.
