Developed to provide the most ideal focal range for normal use—covering frequently-used focal lengths between 18mm and 135mm—the Sony SAL18135 mid-range zoom lens enables rich expression for a wide range of shots. Direct Manual Focus (DMF) allows you to switch between AF and MF without removing your eyes from the viewfinder to seize fleeting photo ops with ease. Plus, enjoy smooth and quiet AF thanks to the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM), which also improves AF response when shooting moving subjects. And with a single ED glass lens element as well as a pair of aspherical lens elements, the SAL18135 delivers images with low levels of color aberration for excellent image quality in any setting.

  • Great Lens
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this lens to replace my Sony 18-55 and 55-200 lenses and it was a right decision. It has become my everyday lens. No more needed changing lenses for different purposes and getting dust into mirror. Has good focal length and it is good for everyday use or for travel. I wish this lens was in my kit.

  • Highly recommended for the non-professional
    Verified Purchase

    I have been enjoying this lens almost daily for the past month. The lens is very quiet and smooth compared to others lenses in this price range. I also find the images produced are well above what is needed to make a great photograph even when blown up or cropped in at the entire focal range. A constant 2.8 aperture would have made this lens a gem, but it would have also more than tripled the price. There are lens snobs out there that will quickly dismiss the lens due to its plastic or a review that shows minor aberrations on the extremes with all the camera compensation disabled - ignore these people. This lens allows you to enjoy photography and get the shot. I have enjoyed showing this lens and its output off to my peers, and I am sure you will as well. Definitely easy to recommend at this price!
