Without the extender, the lens has a focal length of 4.5 up to a maximum of 63mm. The lens has a 14x zoom range and full remote control via an RS-232 serial data port (RD version), and a maximum relative aperture at 1:1.8 from 4.5mm to 41mm and 1:2.8 at 63mm.
Enhancements to the HA14x4.5BE RM/RD include minimized geometric distortion and improved corner resolution and contrast.
