Sony SKU: SEL18135 | Helix SKU: SYSEL18135

Lightweight, Compact, High-magnification zoom lens

With broad zoom range extending from 18mm wide-angle to 135mm telephoto, the versatile lens covers a wide range of subjects and situations. It features compact, lightweight portability that maximizes the APS-C format E-mount advantage, as well as fast, precise, quiet AF operation that make it an excellent one-lens solution for day-to-day shooting.

7.5x zoom in a compact, lightweight lens

This lens weighs in at a mere 11.5oz (325g), and is no larger than 67.2mm in diameter and 88mm in length. At the telephoto end of the zoom range the focal length is 202.5mm (35mm format equivalent), providing ample reach for general shooting as well as landscapes, wildlife, portraits, and more.

High corner-to-corner resolution

High corner-to-corner resolution

A new optical design that includes one aspherical element contributes to consistently high resolution from the image center right out to the edges throughout the zoom range, while two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration. Built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to shoot blur-free images handheld.

Minimum focusing distance is just 0.45 m (1.48 ft) (0.29x max. magnification), making it easy to shoot close-ups of sweets, flowers, and wildlife that combine sharp in-focus subjects with beautiful background bokeh. Bokeh quality is enhanced by a circular aperture design.
