High quality photos anytime, with the most compact and lightest full-frame, ultra-wide angle zoom lens in it’s class.

The 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD (Model A037) is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that combines superb image quality with outstanding portability as the lightest and smallest size in its class.* It uses four LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements to minimize axial chromatic aberrations. And with two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lenses it cannot only provide the sharpness and contrast demanded by high-end lenses, it can also handle peripheral point image reproducibility. Furthermore, it has repeatedly gone through our proprietary ghosting analysis simulation employed to resist backlighting problems from strong light sources to which wide-angle lenses are often subjected. Along with an enhanced high level optical construction, the lens has BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating highly effective in reducing reflection and controlling ghosting and flare. The Minimum Object Distance (MOD) for the entire zoom range is a short 0.28m (11 in), so you can still enjoy the background blurring effect when shooting full open aperture and close-up with this ultra-wide-angle zoom. The Model A037 also has a circular aperture that gives you beautiful circular bokeh.

A compact wide-angle zoom lens that’s easy to grab and shoot.

The Model A037 was created to meet the demand for a lightweight, compact lens with high-level optical performance. This single lens covers a full range from ultra-wide angle 17mm for use in professional landscape photography to standard 35mm wide-angle for everyday snapshot photography. Yet it is only 90mm in length, 83.6mm in diameter, and weighs in at only 460g.

AF to capture the moment

The AF drive employs a newly developed OSD (Optimized Silent Drive) to ensure silent operation. Upgraded and optimized for even further reduction in drive noise, this drive allows the lens to be used to your heart’s content in all situations where silence is required. With its greatly enhanced quality and speed, the new outstanding AF performance and tracking capabilities mean you never have to worry about missing a shot even when focusing on moving subjects.
