Ultralight, Versatile Wide-Angle Power Zoom
Sony’s vast expertise brings you the world’s lightest1 full frame F4 wide-angle power-zoom lens, giving today’s content creators refined imagery, expression and control. A new power zoom system in a compact lens is suitable for small crews or solo shooting. It is ideal for stills too, with beautiful G lens™ rendering and astonishing AF (autofocus) performance.
Evolved Image Quality
This compact, lightweight, full-frame constant F4 wide-angle power zoom lens delivers superb G Lens image quality. It includes two AA (advanced aspherical) elements, a Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element and an ED element to effectively suppress distortion and aberration.
Smooth Power Zoom With Rapid Response
A new power zoom system driven by four XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors for the first time in an Alpha lens provides smooth control with the immediacy of manual zoom. Even subtle zoom ring rotation is precisely detected and instantaneously converted to zoom operation. A continuously variable zoom lever makes it easy to execute super-slow constant-speed zooms, and zoom can be remotely controlled even while the camera is mounted on a gimbal.
Naturally rendered bokeh and excellent close-up performance
A 7 bladed circular aperture and well-controlled spherical aberration deliver natural, smooth bokeh. Minimum focusing distance of just 9.5-inch (0.24 m) with 0.23x maximum magnification and constant length make this lens an excellent choice for close-up photography.
Consistent Balance For Easy Handling
Although this compact wide-angle zoom lens weighs just 12.5 oz (353 g), it does not compromise functionality or performance in any way. Its length remains constant while focusing and zooming for optimal balance and handling, which also makes it ideal for gimbal or even aircraft-mounted movie shooting or with the use of a matte box.
Power zoom can be controlled with the response and immediacy of a manual zoom with the lens ring. Slow and fast zoom rate is accessible from the lens zoom lever. Up to 8 speeds can be set from the zoom lever or custom keys on compatible cameras. Zoom functions of compatible cameras can be operated without touching the camera by Bluetooth connection from compatible remote controls or Smart devices with Imaging Edge Mobile.
