This is a perfect all-in-one standard zoom lens that brings you closer to
your subject for use with Sony® α (alpha) DSLR cameras. With
superior all-in-one lens performance for everyday shooting, its 35mm-
equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle to 300mm telephoto excels at
capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and
intimate close-up views.
Internal Focusing System
Internal lens elements move when focusing, so the overall length does not change -- creating a
lens that focuses more quickly and doesn't change balance.
Aspherical Lens Elements
Three aspherical elements correct visual aberrations more effectively across the entire zoom
range and help reduce weight.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
Two ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp,
clear shots even at full telephoto extension.
Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-
light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
Advisory when using DT lenses with full-frame (35mm equivalent) DSLR cameras.
Sony α (alpha) lenses with the Digital Technology (DT) designation are ideal for use on APS-C size
DSLR cameras and are not recommended for use with full frame DSLR camera bodies (such as
the DSLR-A900). Although DT lenses can be used with full frame cameras, they can only realize a
maximum of 11MP image size (when using the DSLR-A900), and are not guaranteed to provide
accurate Auto Exposure performance.
