The lens for APS-C cameras covers the entire focal length range between 18 and 135 millimeters and features the optical image stabilization "Optical SteadyShot".
With its dimensions of 67.2 x 88 millimeters and a weight of only 325 grams, the lens is extremely compact and light compared to other lenses with similar focal lengths.
The 7.5x optical zoom makes it a real all-rounder. The focal length range from 18 to 135 mm for APS-C corresponds to 27 to 202.5 mm in full format.
The lens is ideal for α, α and α because of its compact form and is the ideal partner for almost all shooting situations - from daily life and portrait photography to landscape, nature and travel photography, everything is possible.
To make the lens so compact, Sony has chosen a modern design with aspheric glass and two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses to minimize imaging errors. In addition, the sharpness over the entire focal length range up to the edge of the image is excellent.
Interesting for macro fans: Thanks to the maximum magnification of 0.29 times and the minimum focus distance of 45 centimeters, close-ups with beautiful bokeh or blur effects in the background are easily possible. The integrated optical image stabilisation allows you to take pictures from the hand and without a tripod, even in difficult lighting situations.
The linear motor is fast, precise and quiet, providing a solid, reliable autofocus. This makes the lens the perfect partner for Sony's mirrorless cameras - especially for high-speed or video recording.…more
