With a versatile 18-135mm (27-202.5mm / 35mm equivalent) range, Optical SteadyShot Image stabilization and fast, precise, quiet AF, this compact and lightweight zoom for APS-C E-mount cameras produces excellent corner-to-corner sharpness and beautiful defocused bokeh to a variety of still and movie applications.
7.5x High Magnification Zoom
A versatile 7.5x high magnification zoom APS-C lens featuring an 18-135mm / 27-202.5mm (35mm equivalent) focal length, F3.5-5.6 aperture range and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization can cover a broad spectrum of subjects and situations, including scenery, portraits, nature, and general day-to-day photography.
Advanced Aspherical Optical Design
An aspherical element helps suppress aberrations, achieving impressively high resolution, sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and ultra-wide angles while reducing the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight.
ED (Extra Low Dispersion)
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements control chromatic aberration for excellent sharpness from image center to periphery. ED glass elements correct for axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration, which affect resolution and bokeh, while leaving precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration.
7-blade Circular Aperture
When changing your aperture to defocus the background, light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background is enhanced with the 7-blade circular aperture used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing, polygonal-shaped, defocused points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.
Optical Image Stabilization
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization keeps your image stable even when your hands aren't. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, Optical SteadyShot ensures brilliant photographic results - even at high magnification.
Fast, Precise, Quiet AF
An advanced linear motor powers the lens’s AF system, with outstanding, precise and quiet operation that is ideally suited for movies, as well as stills. Easily achieve accurate focus, even with moving subjects.
Class-leading Close-up Performance
Class-leading close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 1.48 ft. and 0.29x maximum magnification is ideal for portraits, telephoto, macro, and more.
Instant Auto/Manual Focus Selection
Instantly switch between auto and manual focus via an AF/MF switch on the side of the lens. This makes operation faster and easier as you let the camera and lens focus for you; or, decide to take control and manually focus on the precise point you chose.
