Excellent corner-to-corner imaging throughout the zoom range
Advanced optics achieve consistently high corner-to-corner resolution throughout the zoom range. Four aspherical elements effectively reduce aberration, while ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration. A circular aperture and carefully controlled spherical aberration shape add expressive potential with beautiful, smooth background bokeh and natural highlights that complement outstanding in-focus sharpness and clarity.
A one-lens solution for mobile, versatile shooting
Excellent optical performance and a high zoom ratio are packed into a compact, lightweight design. The design extends to compatible mounts for outstanding system mobility and handling ease. This one high-performance lens lets you shoot a wide range of subjects and situations.
Precise, quiet AF for stills and movies
Sony's Direct Drive SSM AF drive system offers fast, precise and quiet focusing. A precision optical design minimizes focus breathing.
Professional operability and reliability
A fluorine coating on the front element prevents contaminants such as oils, grime, and water from sticking to the front of the lens, and makes them easier to remove if they do become attached to the lens surface.
