The new design is slightly changed, and this is the first thing that an inquisitive researcher will notice. The range of focal lengths and maximum aperture are the same. The image stabilization system has an efficiency equivalent to 3.5 shutter speeds, which is slightly less than before (4 steps). The optical components in location and quantity are the same as in the second version. However, a new lens coating has been announced that corrects ghosting and eliminates glare.
