Sony SAL-16105 Wide-Range Zoom Lens

Get into the action. Designed to take advantage of APS-size CCD imagers like the Exmor™ sensor of the Sony® α(alpha) DSLR-A700 camera, this amazingly compact premium zoom lens provides superior all-around performance. Its 35mm-equivalent range of 24mm wide-angle to 157.5mm telephoto is perfect for capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-ups.

Internal Focusing System
Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change -- creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn’t alter its balance.

Sophisticated Multi-Element Design
16 lens elements in 13 groups correct visual aberrations across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
ED Glass lens elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension.

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.
