  • High Magnification Zoom
  • Smooth Autofocus Motor
  • Wide-angle to Long Telephoto
  • Filter Diameter: 62mm
  • Direct Manual Focus mechanism:
  • DMF (Direct Manual Focus) functions previously offered mainly on Carl Zeiss, G and other high-performance lenses are included with the SAL18135
  • DMF allows users to quickly switch between AF (autofocus) and MF (manual focus) without removing their eyes from the viewfinder to easily seize fleeting photo opportunities with success
  • Comfortably light mid-range zoom lens:
  • The SAL-18135 reduced weigh of 14 oz./398 grams makes it easy to shoot while also finding ways to enhance the shooting experience
  • Its weight was especially reduced in the front of the lens to improve overall balance and make it easier to hold the camera steady when taking photos
  • Silent, high-speed AF drive via SAM:
  • The Auto Focus drive in the SAL is smooth and quiet thanks to its SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor), which also helps improves AF response when shooting moving subjects
  • Reductions in drive noise also make the SAL-18135 quieter than other entry-level model lenses in the lineup
  • Superior internal optics including ED glass:
  • Featuring a single ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens element as well as a pair of aspherical lens elements, the SAL-18135 delivers images with low levels of colour aberration
  • The result is excellent image quality that ranges from indoor photo birthday parties to as stunning landscapes

  • Great range for everyday

Excellent lens with a very usable range for my shooting style. Sharp images but noticeable distortion in the 18-24 range. The distortion is not a critical issue when shooting in RAW and using image editing software that can correct it easily. Very happy with the purchase.

Best lens you could buy for price and quality. It is made in Japan, a rare commodity these days. Once again...for what I paid ... no complaints. Tested for 2 weeks and it is really great. It amazes me every time. I'm not a pro so no technical details sorry. :)
