Product Highlights
  • For Alpha & Minolta Maxxum Series

The Sony SAL-500F80 Telephoto 500mm f/8.0 Reflex Autofocus Lens is unique in that it offers autofocus in a reflex telephoto lens. Thanks to its space-saving catadioptric design, it is compact, lightweight and ideal for field work on wilderness and nature assignments. A convenient built-in focus-hold button is located at the side of the lens barrel for quick and sure operation.

This lens takes advantage of Sony's in-camera Super SteadyShot image stabilization system to reduce blur by compensating for shaky hands.

Mounted on the Sony α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides a 750mm focal length (35mm equivalent).
Reflective optics eliminate the chromatic aberrations that can affect image quality in refractive telephoto lenses, so images are extremely sharp and clear.
At fixed f/8 aperture, the exposure is controlled by varying the camera shutter speed and using a neutral-density snap-on filter.
