The 2.8/80 is the standard lens for the H system. The high-performance design ensures great colour correction, a flat image plane, and low distortion. The large aperture facilitates photography in poor light and provides a bright viewfinder image. A lens suited for almost any task in general photography.
The term ‘normal lens’ sounds a little derogatory in the context of high-class lenses, but the HC 2,8/80mm is not only the most affordable but also one of the best HC lenses in the market. It’s a high-speed lens that gives a bright viewfinder image in low light situations. It is also incredibly compact, making it an excellent choice for lightweight photography outdoors.
