Features

Overview: The DT18-135mm F3.5-5.6 SAM (SAL18135) mid-range zoom lens provides the most ideal focal range, covering frequently-used focal lengths between 18 and 135mm. The lens has a Sony A-mount, and is compatible with the Sony Alpha-series digital SLR cameras (with an APS-C sized image sensor). If you wish to use the lens on E-mount camera (Sony NEX-series), the optional LA-EA1 mount adapter is required.

ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass: Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass minimizes flare and reduces color abnormalities, giving you sharp, clear photos, even at full telephoto extension.

Focusing: The lens has an AF-MF switch on the side for switching between auto focus and manual focus. For AF photography, both the camera and the lens should be set to AF. For MF photography, either or both the camera and lens should be set to MF.

Direct Manual Focus (DMF): Direct Manual Focus (DMF) allows you to rotate the focusing ring to set the proper focus, even when the camera is in Automatic Auto Focus (AF-A) or Single shot Auto Focus (AF-S).

Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM): The SAL18135 gives you fast, smooth, quiet auto focusing due to the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM), which improves the AF response when shooting moving subjects.

Zoom Lock:  The Zoom Lock switch, located on the side of the lens, prevents the lens barrel from extending due to the weight of the lens while it is carried.

Lens Hood: The included ALC-SH119 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. When installed on the lens, the lens cap adds approximately 2" to the overall length of the lens. The lens hood can be reversed and mounted on the lens for storage.

Note: When using the built-in camera flash, make sure to remove the lens hood to avoid blocking the light from the flash.
