It also features an advanced inner-focus mechanism driven by Sony's Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) system for fast, accurate AF lock-on as well as smooth, quiet operation. A customizable focus hold button provides extra control versatility, while dust and moisture resistant design means reliable operation even in challenging conditions.
Clarity and contrast in any light
Sony's original Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Freedom from flare over a wide range of incident light angles provides greater framing and composing flexibility.
Advantages for movie recording
With a constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range this lens makes it possible to achieve consistent exposure. Advanced AF with outstanding speed and precision contributes to reliable subject tracking at wide angles for impressive movie perspectives.
High reliability in harsh conditions
The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant3for extra protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
Integrated lens hood
A built-in lens hood effectively blocks incident light that might cause flare and ghosting, maintaining optimum clarity and contrast even at the lens's widest angles. The supplied lens cap slips right over the built-in hood.
