Our take on the Sony SAL2875 28-75mm f/2.8

Sony designed this zoom lens for their Alpha line of DLSR cameras. A large maximum aperture throughout the focal range lets you take photos with a sharply focused subject and an artistically blurred background. Take crisp indoor shots without using a flash, and use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects.

Product Research



Product Overview: The Sony SAL2875 wide angle zoom lens is specially designed for the Sony Alpha-series DSLR cameras which have an APS-C sized image sensor. This lens is ideal for sharp, high-contrast shots when working indoors, with people in groups, or in landscapes and urban scenes. It is also good for panoramic shots with lots of detail.

Compatibility: This lens is compatible with the Sony α (Alpha)-series digital SLR cameras.

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. You can switch between AF (automatic focus) and MF (manual focus) with the focusing mode switch on the lens. The focus signal in the viewfinder indicates the current degree of the focus.
