Experience stunning Carl Zeiss? quality in a compact mid-range zoom lens. 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.
The latest advances in optical design technology have made it possible to deliver prized Carl Zeiss contrast and clarity in a high-performance mid-range zoom. Four aspherical elements combine with one ED glass element to bring you breathtaking rendering. One of those aspherical elements is a product of innovative Sony high precision, advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) technology, enabling first-class performance in a diminutive design. You can shoot at the maximum F4 aperture throughout the zoom range, and internal focusing provides smooth, quiet zooming.
Outstanding contrast and resolution at all zoom settings are hallmarks of this premium go-anywhere lens. Advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) technology combines one AA lens element and three normal aspherical elements, reducing lens size and weight without sacrificing image quality. Unique to Carl Zeiss, renowned T* coating on optical surfaces reduces glare and ghosting for natural colour reproduction plus superb definition and clarity.
Unlike budget zooms that stop down at their tele end, maximum aperture remains a constant F4 at all focal lengths. This reduces the need for high ISO settings when zoomed in, and also allows the use of high shutter speeds to freeze fast-moving action. As an extra refinement the circular aperture can achieve beautifully smooth, natural background defocus (bokeh) effects.
