  • 1Description

Covering the essential wide to short telephoto lengths with its 27-82.5mm equivalent range, this E 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens from Sony is a great, lightweight option for APS-C-format E-mount cameras. Ensuring excellent image quality are three aspherical elements to help combat aberrations. Also, the lens is equipped with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to reduce the impact of camera shake on the final image. An internal focus design helps users by providing improved autofocus performance and a minimum focus distance of 9.8". Additionally, a seven-blade circular diaphragm helps create smooth, rounded bokeh.

Designed for APS-C-format E-mount mirrorless cameras, this 18-55mm lens provides a wide-to-portrait length 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range.
A variable aperture of f/3.5-5.6 helps ensure the lens' size and weight is kept to a minimum.
Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
An internal focus mechanism contributes to faster, more responsive autofocus, the minimum focus distance of 9.8", and easier handling as the lens does not change in length during use.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
