APS-C E-Mount

Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.

*When mounted on α series cameras with APS-C type sensor, the actual angle of view will be equal to the angle obtained at a focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. approx. 1.5 times longer than stated.


Features

  • E-Mount Lens / APS-C Format
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/3.5 to f/36
  • 27-202.5mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Maximum Aperture Range: f/3.5-5.6
  • Two ED Elements & One Aspherical Element
  • Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilisation
  • Linear AF Motor
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 45cm
  • Seven-Blade Circular Diaphragm


7.5x zoom in a compact, lightweight lens

This lens weighs in at a mere 325g), and is no larger than 67.2mm in diameter and 88mm in length. At the telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. end of the zoom range, the focal length is 202.5mm (35mm format equivalent), providing ample reach for general shooting as well as landscapes, wildlife, portraits, and more.


High corner-to-corner resolution

A new optical design that includes one aspherical element contributes to a consistently high resolution from the image centre right out to the edges throughout the zoom range, while two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration. Built-in optical image stabilisation makes it easier to shoot blur-free images handheld.


Close-ups with beautiful background bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh.

Minimum focusing distance is just 0.45m (0.29x max. magnification), making it easy to shoot close-ups of sweets, flowers, and wildlife that combine sharp in-focus subjects with beautiful background bokeh. Bokeh quality is enhanced by a circular aperture design.


Fast, precise, quiet AF is ideal for stills and movies

A precision linear motor powers the lens's AF system, for fast, precise, quiet operation that is ideally suited for movies as well as stills.
