Finally. A versatile, 11X zoom lens that captures stills and video with equal expertise. The Sony SEL-18200LE 18-200mm telephoto lens is the "utility player" your camera bag has been waiting for. With an equivalent zoom range of 27-300mm, you'll be viewing the beach seascape at the wide end, and getting close-ups of frolicking dolphins or lazy pelicans at the telephoto end. And if you have an unplanned travel agenda, this is the perfect lens to keep when you only have room for one, because it's up to any challenge a freewheeling day on the road may present.

Sony's SteadyShot® image stabilization makes blur-free shots easy while you're shooting stills, and built-in autofocus helps you to keep your subjects sharp. To top things off, Sony's well-regarded optics will make sure your images look great, edge-to-edge and across the entire zoom range.

Product Research


Optics: The Sony SEL18200LE (E 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 OSS LE) zoom lens is compatible with the Sony α NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-300mm, and a 78°-8° field of view for capturing close-up portraits and expansive landscapes. It also has a smooth and quiet Auto Focus operation.

Optical Steady Shot (OSS): Equipped with Optical SteadyShot (OSS), the lens compensates for blur caused by camera shake for normal handheld photography. OSS also reduces the reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in dark environments, which greatly enhances the effectiveness of the Hand-held Twilight and Anti-Motion Blur shooting modes.

Lens Hood: The lens includes the ALC-SH124 Lens Hood to reduce flare and ensure maximum image quality. The lens hood should be removed when using the camera's built-in flash to avoid blocking the flash light. You can store the lens hood by mounting it onto the lens backward. When installed, the lens hood adds a little less than 1-1/2" to the total length of the lens.

Focusing: The lens can be used with the NEX-series cameras in the auto-focus, direct manual focus, or manual focus modes. You can switch between focusing modes in the camera menu.

Zoom Lock Switch: The lens has a zoom lock switch to prevent the lens barrel from extending due to the weight of the lens while it is being carried. The lens will lock in place in the full Wide Angle position when you slide the switch toward the front of the lens.

Dimensions: The lens has the following dimensions: Diameter=2.665", Length=4.016" (without lens caps).
