The Sony DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II Lens is a portable standard zoom lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 27-82.5mm for wide-angle to portrait-length coverage. This lens' construction integrates two aspherical and one ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements into its design to help reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range while also contributing to high overall image sharpness, clarity, and contrast. Also helping to improve the image quality is a refined rear lens element shade that serves to minimize internal reflections and prevent ghosting and flare.
The integrated SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) system allows for smooth, precise, and quiet auto focusing that ideally suits use when recording video and working with moving subjects.
