SAL-24105 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens

A high-performance standard zoom for wide-angle to midrange telephoto shots. The compact, easy-to-carry SAL-24105 lens carries you from 24mm wide-angle to 105mm telephoto, the range of focal lengths you’ll use most often for general-purpose photography, giving you a single lens to use on vacation or take on location. Mounted on your Sony ? (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides 35mm wide-angle to 157.7mm telephoto imaging (35mm equivalent).

5X Zoom Range
Smaller and lighter, it’s the only 5X zoom lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony? ± (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera.

Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements
Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improve picture quality across the entire zoom range.

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.

Auto Clutch
In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate — and in manual focusing, a wider focus ring provides a solid, hands-on feel.
