Lens Description: There's a very good reason why 35mm is one of the most popular focal lengths for use on APS-C format cameras. The full-frame equivalent focal length is 52.5mm, providing normal perspective–similar to that experienced with the naked eye. The angle of view is suitable for an extremely wide range of subjects while the large f/1.8 maximum aperture is bright enough to allow hand-held shooting in low light and capable of producing smooth defocusing effects that can add depth and artistic elegance to your images.
