Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony with SteadyShot™ INSIDE and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld, even zoomed-in.

Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh
Refined optical performance

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution and colour fidelity throughout the image, even at large aperture settings.

Smooth, silent autofocus

Built into the lens, the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) is significantly smoother and quieter than conventional camera-coupled autofocus drive systems.
