Details & Highlights

Details from Sony

    3x zoom with attractive pricing, compact size, and low weight
    The DT 18–55mm F3.5–5.6 SAM is a 3x (approx.) zoom lens designed specifically for use with a DSLRs that have an APS–C type sensor. It is exceptionally light and compact, with a weight of only 210g (approx.) and dimensions of 69.5mm (max. diameter) x 69mm (length) that make it very easy to handle and carry.

    Newly–developed Smooth Autofocus Motor
    The DT 18–55mm F3.5–5.6 SAM`s focusing lens group is driven by a new Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) in the lens itself, instead of a motor in the camera body. Responding instantly to AF drive control signals from the camera, the motor delivers power with smoothness and precision.

    Convenient 18–55mm zoom range
    The DT 18–55mm F3.5–5.6 SAM`s zoom covers the frequently used 18mm to 55mm range (35mm–format equivalent: 27–82.5mm), and provides a field of view similar to that of the human eye. As a result, it is an excellent lens for everyday use, capable of handling everything from snapshots and group photos to landscapes and portraits.

    Newly designed rear lens element shade
    The designed shape of the rear lens element shade has been updated in the SAL18552 to help suppress internal reflections and reduces flare and ghost for higher performance and better image quality

    Aspherical and ED (Extra–low Dispersion) glass elements
    Two aspherical elements and one ED (Extra–low Dispersion) glass element are incorporated into the optics to assure high image quality with excellent contrast and resolution all the way out to the periphery of the lens. In addition, a circular aperture mechanism is used to assure smoother, more beautiful background defocusing.

    0.25m minimum focusing distance, 0.34 maximum magnification ratio
    With a class–leading minimum focusing distance of just 0.25 meters and a maximum magnification ratio of 0.34, the DT 18–55mm F3.5–5.6 SAM can also be used to take macro close–ups.
