Read More
  • Telephoto Zoom Lens
  • Super Sonic wave Motor
  • Dust and Moisture Resistant
  • Filter Diameter: 62mm
  • Nano AR Coating technology effectively suppresses reflections for notably enhanced overall image quality and minimized aberration as well as high contrast for excellent resolution throughout the zoom range
  • AF tracking is approximately 4x faster than the previous model
  • Dust and moisture resistant design maximizes reliability
  • An excellent choice for outdoor sports and wildlife, while a 4 foot (1.2 metre) minimum focus makes it useful for portraits and flowers as well
  • 105-600mm (35mm equivalent) with APS-C format cameras
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass / Super ED glass:
  • As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower colour quality, and lower resolution. To counter such problems, ED glass was developed and is included in select lenses
  • It dramatically improves chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings
  • Super ED glass provides enhanced compensation for chromatic aberration
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor):
  • SSM is a piezoelectric motor that contributes to smooth and silent AF operation
  • The motor produces high torque at slow rotation, and provides immediate start and stop responses
  • It is also extremely quiet, which helps keep autofocusing silent
  • Lenses that feature SSM also include a position-sensitive detector to directly detect the amount of lens rotation, a factor that improves AF precision overall
  • Circular aperture:
  • In general, if an aperture uses 7 or 9 aperture blades, then the shape of the aperture becomes a 7-sided or 9-sided polygon as the aperture is made smaller
  • However, this has a certain undesirable effect in that the defocusing of point light sources appears polygonal and not circular
  • Alpha lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops
  • Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result
  • Focus hold button:
  • Once you've adjusted focus to where you want it, pressing this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance
  • The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera's custom settings
  • Nano AR Coating:
  • Original Sony Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating that features a precisely defined regular nano-structure that allows accurate light transmission while effectively suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting
  • The reflection suppression characteristics of the Nano AR Coating are superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, including coatings that use an irregular nano-structure, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality
  • Focus range limiter:
  • This function allows you to set a limit on the focusing range which can save you time during auto focus operation - as the lens will not 'hunt' through the entire focusing range
  • In macro lenses, this limit can be on either the near or far range
  • Certain lenses set the limit on far ranges only, while others can be set either to a far range or to a range that you specify yourself
  • ADI flash metering:
  • Advanced Distance Integration provides precise distance information through the lens distance encoder to the built-in flash, or certain Sony external flashes (HVL-F60M, HVL-F43AM, HVL-F32M, HVL-F20M)
  • ADI provides automatic metering that is virtually unaffected by reflectance or overly dark subjects or backgrounds, yielding a more reliable exposure from the flash
