Sony 18-135mm F3.5-6.3 OSS E-Mount Lens
SKU: 027242909618 MFR:SEL18135
Lightweight and compact designCompact (E-mount APS-C format) and lightweight (11.5 oz [325 g]), this lens features an optical design optimized for short flange focal distances that makes it small and manageable on its own while also contributing to notable reductions in overall system size, weight, and portability.
7.5x high-magnification APS-C zoom lensA high zoom ratio provides a versatile 27-mm to 202.5-mm range (35-mm format equivalent, 7.5x optical zoom) that covers a broad spectrum of subjects and situations: scenery, nature, portraits, and general day-to-day photography.
Optical design achieves high resolutionA new optical design that includes one aspherical element contributes to consistently high resolution from the image center right out to the edges, while two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration.
Built-in optical image stabilizationWhen shooting scenes from a handheld position, particularly night scenes or in dimly lit interiors, built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to shoot blur-free images handheld.
Close-ups with background bokehAn impressive minimum focusing distance of just 0.45 m (1.45 ft) (0.29x max. magnification) makes it easy to shoot close-ups that take advantage of the lens's beautiful background bokeh.
Beautiful bokehBokeh quality is enhanced by a circular aperture design.
Fast, precise, quiet focusAdvanced linear motor technology quietly drives the focus group with outstanding speed and precision, making the most of the high AF performance provided by the ?6000 series. Accurate focus is more easily achieved for stills and movies, even with moving subjects.
This APS-C lens features a versatile 18-135mm focal length, aperture range of F3.5-F5.6 and Optical SteadyShot stabilization.
The lens (model SEL18135) features a compact, lightweight design measuring only 2.75 x 3.5 inches and weighing in at a mere 11.5 oz, as well as a high magnification 7.5x optical zoom that covers the wide-ranging focal length of 18-135mm on APS-C or 27-202.5mm in 35mm equivalent focal length. The lens is an ideal fit for Sony's popular APS-C sensor cameras including a6500, a6300 and a6000, and is an extremely useful tool for a wide range of shooting situations ranging from daily life to portraiture, landscape, nature and travel photography.
The E 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS produces outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness throughout the entire zoom range thanks to its advanced design featuring one aspherical lens and two extra-low dispersion glass elements that minimize aberrations. This lens also allows photographers to produce close-up images with pleasing 'bokeh' or background defocus as a result of its maximum magnification ratio of 0.29x and minimum focus distance of 1.48ft. It also offers built-in optical image stabilization to support handheld shooting.
Additionally, the 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens offers fast, precise, quiet AF performance thanks to a linear motor, making it a perfect complement to the high-speed shooting and impressive video capabilities of many of Sony's mirrorless cameras.
