More details on the Sony SEL1018 10-18mm f/4
Optics: The Sony SEL1018 (E 10-18mm F4 OSS) super-wide-angle zoom lens is compatible with the Sony α NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 15-27mm, and a 109°-76° field of view for capturing expansive landscapes.
Note: Using this lens on a full-frame camera may result in vignetting -- causing the corners of the image to become darker than the center.
Optical SteadyShot (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. Optical SteadyShot gives you a 4-stop shutter speed advantage when activated.
Lens Hood: The lens includes the ALC-SH123 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 1-1/4" 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.
Dimensions: The lens has the following dimensions: Diameter=2.752", Length=2.7"-3.081" (3.217"-3.608" w/caps).
