The f/4 IS lens has added 2 elements and 4 groups to the non-IS lens, to have better image stability and quality. The Chromatic Aberration is well controlled in this product, in order to produce good color and contrast in the images. Moreover, the added feature of 8 blade circular aperture helps in creating quality foreground and background blurr quality.
