Capture stunning scenery, snapshots, portraits, and a wide range of other subject types with the high optical performance and compact dimensions of the SAL1650 Standard zoom lens. Aspherical Lens Elements To correct visual aberrations at wide-angle setting, enabling a lightweight lens to capture more visually accurate wide-angle shots. DT Lens Design A more compact llens designed specifically for use with APS-C size sensors. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colours. Wide f/2.8 aperture The SAL1650 features a large f/2.8 aperture for fast response and superb depth-of-field. Circular Aperture Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
