With Carl Zeiss optics this lens is of excellent quality. Its great strength is that it is specifically designed for the smaller APS-size sensor found on the Sony models whilst covering the equivalent of 24mm focal length at the wideangle end of its zoom range. At its telephoto end, the equivalent on a 35mm film camera would be 120mm. Great versatility. Carl Zeiss have used their renowned T* anti flare coating to keep contrast nice and crisp too.

Here are some important advantages of this lens:

  • 5x Zoom Range
  • Circular aperture for more natural blurred backgorunds
  • 2 Aspherical elements for correction of aberrations giving sharp detail
  • Auto clutch mechanism (non-turning focus ring during Autofocus)
  • Comfortable operation with wide focus ring
