  • Compact Mid-range Zoom Lens
  • 4x Zoom Range
  • Four Aspherical Elements
  • Filter Diameter: 55mm
  • Linear motor-driven internal focusing provides smooth, quiet zooming that, coupled with an ultra-responsive AF, makes this outstanding lens ideal for shooting movies as well as stills
  • Lens-shift image stabilization minimizes the effects of camera shake in the widest possible range of shooting situations, so you always get optimum image quality
  • An elegantly finished metal exterior emphasizes the overall excellence of this sophisticated design
  • Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens:
  • Outstanding contrast and resolution throughout the image area at all zoom settings are the hallmark of this high-performance Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens
  • Zeiss T* (T-star) coating minimizes glare and ghosting that can degrade image quality, contributing to natural color reproduction as well as superb definition and clarity
  • High lens technology in a compact body:
  • The 4x zoom range of this lens extends from 24mm to 105mm (35mm full equivalent), making it ideal for a wide range of common subject and situations
  • A significant reduction in overall lens size, while maintaining first-class image quality, has been realized thanks to advanced Sony high precision, advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) production technology
  • The lens is compact and lightweight, making it a convenient portable choice for casual day-to-day shooting as well as landscapes, snapshots, portraits and more
  • Constant F4 maximum aperture:
  • A constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range allows the user to use optimum exposure parameters for the shot he or she visualizes at any focal length
  • The ability to use apertures of F4.0 at the telephoto end of the zoom range also reduces the need to use high ISO settings and allows the use of high shutter speeds to capture action when necessary
  • A circular aperture design helps to deliver smooth background defocusing
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization:
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization provides a marked reduction in image blur cause by camera shake, especially when shooting handheld at telephoto focal lengths or in dim indoor lighting
  • In the Anti Motion Blur and Handheld Twilight modes this technology makes it easier than ever to shoot clear, blur-free, low-noise images at night, indoors, or in any conditions that would otherwise be a challenge due to low light conditions, without having to boost sensitivity or use a tripod

  • Great Walk-Around Lens

  • May 05, 2014
  • By: Robert

Noticeably larger than the 16-50PZ kit lens, but not too large for the camera (NEX-6). Very useful zoom range. AF is fast. Image quality is excellent. Includes a petal lens hood, which is an extra for many other lenses.

  • Should be the standard lens on NEX-7!

Good coverage, superb image quality (amazing details with NEX-7) & focusing speed, but also expensive and all plastic except the lens mount.
