    Water and dust resistance

    By adopting a water and dust resistant construction, sealing is applied to the joining sections and switch panels to prevent water and dust from entering the inside of the lens. The fluorine coating on the surface of the front and rear elements ensure that oil and water is easily repelled and can be easily wiped off with just a dry cloth, without the use of solvent.
