Product Overview: The Sony SAL18200 is specially designed for
the APS-size CCD image of the Sony DSLR-A100 camera. With the superior all-in-one
lens performance for everyday shooting, its 35mm-equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle
to 300mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic
landscapes and intimate close-up views.
Compatibility: This lens is compatible with the Sony Alpha-series
digital SLR cameras.
DT Lens Design: The DT lens design is a compact, lightweight
design specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony Alpha-series
digital SLR cameras.
Internal Focusing System: The internal focusing system allows
the internal lens elements to move, so the overall length does not have to change.
This creates a lens that focuses quickly and doesn't change balance.
Aspherical Lens Elements: Three aspherical elements correct
visual abnormalities more effectively across the entire zoom range, and they help
ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass: Two ED glass lenses minimize
flare and greatly reduce color abnormalities, giving you sharp and clear shots,
even at full telephoto extension.
Circular Aperture: Because aperture blades form a near
circle at the wide openings used for low-lights shots, spot light sources have a
pleasing circular defocused effect.
Lens Hood: The included lens hood allows for better shooting
in bright light. A lens hood can be used to reduce flare in bright light areas to
ensure maximum image quality.
Note: When using the built-in camera
flash, make sure to remove the lens hood to avoid blockage
of the flash light.
Focusing: This lens can be used for auto and manual focusing.
The focus signal in the viewfinder indicates the current degree of the focus.
Distance Encoder: The lens is equipped with a distance encoder,
which allows more accurate measurement by using a flash for ADI (Advanced Distance
