G Lens quality all the way to 350mm
Optimized optical and mechanical design offers outstanding super-telephoto zoom performance for APS-C bodies (105–525mm equiv.). Impressive G Lens quality is maintained throughout the zoom range right out to the image edges. All of this is packed into a compact, mobile 5x super-telephoto zoom lens with built-in optical image stabilization.
One aspherical element and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements in a precision optical design suppress aberration throughout the zoom range, including chromatic aberration that can be an issue at super-telephoto focal lengths. Excellent sharpness and rendering are achieved at all zoom settings, throughout the image area. Gorgeous telephoto G Lens bokeh is another advantage.
Although it offers a big 5x zoom range, this compact lens weighs in at just 625 grams, enhancing the mobility of the entire camera system. 70–350mm (105–525mm equiv.) is an ideal range for a wide spectrum of subjects. Built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to capture crisp, blur-free imagery even when shooting handheld at super-telephoto focal lengths.
Sony’s original XD (extreme dynamic) linear motor technology has been applied in an APS-C lens, offering top-class autofocus performance that is fast, precise and tenacious. Coupled with the advanced real-time AF capability of the latest compact APS-C bodies, you have a high-performance, easy-handling system for landscapes, wildlife and more.
An Optical SteadyShot switch, customizable focus hold button, and zoom lock switch add control convenience to a lens that also features a dust and moisture resistant design for high reliability in challenging environmental conditions. All of this complements the lens’s portability, making pro-class control and dependability available wherever you go.
