The XCD 45P features an optical design incorporating two aspherical elements and thanks to evolved designs, the noise from the autofocus motor and leaf shutter (allows for flash sync up to 1/2000s) have been reduced. There's also a mechanically connected focus ring so those wanting to use it manually can.
