Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Compatibility: This lens is compatible with the Sony Alpha-series
digital SLR cameras.
Carl Zeiss T* Coating: The SAL2470Z lens features Carl Zeiss T*
(T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection, and
light scattering that can occur at glass-to-air surfaces.
ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass: Two ED glass elements minimize
flare and reduce color abnormalities, giving you sharp and clear shots, even at full
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 blocking
the light from the flash.
Focus Mode: This lens is compatible with automatic and manual
focusing. To use auto-focus, both the camera body and the Focus Mode switch on the
lens must be set to auto-focus. To focus manually, set the camera body or the Focus
Mode switch on the lens to manual focus and adjust the focus ring on the lens.
Focus Hold: While the Focus Hold button is pressed, auto-focus
is suspended and the focus is fixed in that position.
Distance Information: The shooting distance scale, located on
the barrel of the lens, is graduated in feet and meters from 1.1 ft. (0.34m) to
infinity. For accurate manual focusing, look through the viewfinder while rotating
the focusing ring.
