Weather-resistant Construction
This lens features dependable, weather-resistant construction with nine special seals to effectively prevent intrusion of water into the lens interior. When used with a weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting setting.

Lens Hood Included
Included low-profile lens hood is designed for easy carrying without the need to remove it from the lens for storage.

HD Coating
This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating.
