Uncommonly fast aperture
The fast f/2.8 aperture enables shooting at much higher shutter speeds to freeze action.
The 2.8x zoom range goes all the way from 70mm, suitable for portaits and other medium-angle shots, to a telephoto 200mm.
G Series Optical Performance
Sony's G-Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral ligh characteristics and maximizing contrast even at the edges of the frame.
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion)
Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
Focus Range Limiter
Used when you need the quickest possible autofocus response within a certain focal range. The lens will only autofocus within the set range eliminating AF at focal lengths outside.
