Notes - Related Units

This 3x zoom lens covers everything from just over standard focal lengths to powerful telephotos.
The bright F4 aperture makes it very suitable for a wide range of subjects.
Yet it is remarkably small and light, with a weight of 730g and an overall length of 147mm.
The one-touch design allows simulaneous zooming and focusing which can be essential when fast action is required.
The minimum focus distance of 1.2m makes it easier to work in tight spaces.
A close focus setting at 200mm lets you even focus at 0.85m giving an image magnification of 1:3. This is especially useful for subjects like insects that won't let you get too close, and provides extra space for lighting.

Close-up photography.
For hand-held photography, a shutter speed of 1/250 sec. or faster is recommended.
Also, to prevent camera shake:
When using a tripod, hold the camera steady with both hands and press the shutter release with the ball of finger, not with the cable release.
Compatible focusing screens: 1-1~1-6, 1-10, 1-13, 1-14.
