SAL-18250 DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Specification

DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 High Magnification Zoom Lens

Magnify your subjects with pinpoint accuracy and control. This long-telephoto Sony zoom lens provides high magnification and a broad 14X zooming range in compact, lightweight design that makes it easy to carry—and its 35mm-equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle to 375mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway objects, outdoor performances, complex scenery and crisp close-ups. It’s an invaluable accessory to your Sony ?(alpha) DSLR-A700 and A100 camera.

Internal Focusing System
Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change — creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn’t change balance.

Sophisticated Multi-Element Design
16 lens elements in 13 groups correct visual aberrations across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
ED Glass lens elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension.

Circular Aperture
Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
