One of the most interesting aspects of these goals is autofocus, in fact there are two linear motors that guarantee automatic, precise and immediate focusing, which is able to follow the subject even when it is moving. All this, with a silent mechanism, which guarantees greater professionalism.

In addition, it is possible, in all three lenses, to use the button that maintains focus, a selection of focus modes, an aperture ring and a click adjustment of the aperture. There is also the integration of manual focus that makes the aperture ring respond quickly to the change of commands.
