Product Overview: The Sony
SAL1118 wide-angle lens is specially designed for the APS-size CCD image of the Sony DSLR-A100
camera. With the superior wide-angle performance and quick zoom, its
35mm-equivalent range of 16.5mm to 27mm excels at capturing
fast action in close environments.
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 Sony
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
Aspherical Lens Elements: Three aspherical elements correct visual abnormalities more effectively across the
entire zoom range, and they help reduce weight.
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.
