• This lens is developed primarily for movie production, and have a color balance typical for
movies. This means that the color reproduction is warmer than that of EF lenses which
are basically used to shoot still images. Therefore, when using both types of lens together,

narrow near the widest aperture and when shooting a subject at close range. In addition,
