SONY ALPHA DT 55-300 F4.5-5.6 LENS

  • Compact, Lightweight Zoom Lens
  • For APS-C size DSLR Cameras
  • Multi-Element Design
  • Filter Diameter: 62 mm
  • Covers the medium- to long-distance telephoto range that families use most often, with close 4.5-foot (1.4m) minimum focusing distance for great all-around usability
  • Get a superb all-purpose telephoto zoom lens at a great value with the Sony SAL55300 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens
  • An excellent all-around addition to your kit, this lens covers the medium- to long-distance telephoto range used most often by family photographers
  • It also provides close minimum focusing distance of about 4.5 feet (1.4m) ideal for tight shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details
  • Its compact, lightweight design makes it easy to carry as your standard or accessory lens
  • All your shots will benefit from the Sony Super SteadyShot image stabilization system built into your Sony Alpha DSLR camera (35mm equivalent: 82.5-450mm)
  • Compact Design, All-Around Versatility:
  • This high-value 55-300mm zoom lens covers a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications -- and its lightweight design lets you leave it on-camera or carry it easily as an accessory lens for special purposes (35mm equivalent: 82.5-450mm)
  • DT Lens Design:
  • The SAL-55300 is specially designed for the APS-size CCD imager used in Sony (Alpha) DSLR cameras
  • APS-size sensors are smaller than a 35mm-format film frame, so the focal distance to cover the same field of view can be about 2/3 shorter -- allowing a more compact lens design
  • Short Minimum Focusing Distance:
  • With the ability to focus as closely as 4.5 feet (1.4m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details
  • In-Camera Image Stabilization:
  • A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony system DSLR -- and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms
  • Multi-Element Design:
  • The SAL-55300 is designed with 12 lens elements in 9 groups, with precision focusing performance and smooth zoom operation
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass:
  • Because light of different wavelength (or colour) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colours
  • Advisory when using DT lenses with full-frame (35mm equivalent) DSLR cameras:
  • Sony (alpha) lenses with the Digital Technology (DT) designation are ideal for use on APS-C size DSLR cameras and are not recommended for use with full frame DSLR camera bodies (such as the DSLR-A900)
  • Although DT lenses can be used with full frame cameras, they can only realize a maximum of 11MP image size (when using the DSLR-A900), and are not guaranteed to provide accurate Auto Exposure performance
