_MG_4674-0.jpg ED - Extra Low Dispersion Glass is used to reduce chromatic aberrations. Since average glass has a different refractive index for different light spectrum rainbow color aberrations on the edges of objects may occur. For this reason the image can be unsharp and fuzzy. The use of Extra Low Dispersion Glass minimize these negative effects and make image clear and sharp.

Multi coating and Extra Low Dispersion glass provides excellent resolution and contrast of the image. F6.7 helps to achieve good depth of focus field and useful in dark conditions.

Focusing
