Versatile, lightweight 11x zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example.

If you are looking for a single solution to cover all possible scenarios, the E 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens from Sony may be a great choice for you. Able to provide a wide-angle to super 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. equivalent zoom range of 27-300mm, shooters will enjoy taking photos of subjects both near and far without needing to swap out lenses. The lens also features a variable f/3.5-6.3 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. for keeping the lens relatively compact and incorporates one ED element as well as four aspherical elements to reduce aberrations.

Featuring built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, users can enjoy sharper images with reduced camera shake. There is an Active Mode as well, for capturing smooth videos. Other benefits of this lens include a zoom lock switch that prevents zoom creep when the lens is not in use and an internal focus design that helps improve AF performance. Additionally, a seven-blade circular diaphragm helps create smooth, rounded 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..
