This lens fits squarely in the “wide zoom” category, offering a range of
focal lengths that are indispensable for serious indoor and architectural
photography as well as any other situation that demands wide-angle
coverage. City scenes, crowded markets, historical ruins… all of these are
subjects that can benefit from the wide perspectives this lens provides.
It’s also a great lens for shooting dynamic images with deep perspective.
Although wide angles present more opportunities for image-degrading
lens flare, the SAL1118 features special elements and design that reduce
flare and aberrations to a minimum for crisp, high-contrast images even
under difficult conditions.
