Whether you’re shooting a distant mountain peak or a beautiful orchid at arm’s length, the superb SAL-135F18Z telephoto lens provides amazing image quality. Its f/1.8 aperture makes it the brightest telephoto lens in its class. And with 35mm-equivalent 202.5mm focal length, plus the ability to focus tightly on objects closer than three feet away, it can cover an amazing range of photographic assignments.
At fully open f/1.8 aperture (the best in its class), this high-performance 135mm lens creates amazingly bright telephoto images.
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony ± (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens gives you excellent results even working with hand-held camera by available light.
You can capture professional-quality images of both faraway scenes and objects closer than three feet.
