The PZD ultrasonic motor delivers a noticeably faster and at the same time quieter autofocus action – ideal for capturing spontaneous moments in razor-sharp images. Furthermore, it also allows you the option of manually focussing the lens at any time.
VC Image Stabilization (Vibration Compensation)
