Sony 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 DT SAM II (SAL18552) Alpha Mount Autofocus Lens {55} Description


Manufacturer description: This lens succeeds the popular DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM that was introduced in 2011. The light, compact 3x zoom lens covers a frequently-used range of focal lengths from wide-angle 18mm to standard 55mm (35mm camera equivalent range: 27-82.5mm). While retaining the same smooth AF motor (SAM) as its predecessor, newly-designed rear lens elements suppresses flare and ghost, while mechanical elements have been upgraded for more positive, comfortable operation.

This compact, lightweight zoom lens provides coverage for the most frequently used 18-55mm range, offering excellent contrast and resolution for gorgeous image quality.
