Balancing with the handling attributes, this lens also sports an intelligent optical design that uses both extra-low dispersion glass and aspherical elements to control spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.

Versatile zoom designed for APS-C-format E-mount mirrorless cameras, this 18-135mm lens provides a 27-202.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Two extra-low dispersion elements help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
One aspherical element helps to control distortion and reduce spherical aberrations for greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
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.
A linear autofocus motor provides quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos. Additionally, a dedicated AF/MF switch allows for quick changing between focusing methods.
Minimum focusing distance of 1.5' along with a maximum magnification of 0.29x benefit working with close-up subjects.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

How is this lens for close-up, e.g., wildflowers and butterflies; a6400?
Asked by: Matthew
Like most general purpose lenses, it will function, but it may not produce the results you might be looking for. It does not focus all that close, and with a slow aperture, you are are going to have to increase the ISO so as to keep the shutter speed fast enough to prevent motion blur when that bug moves. I suggest the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Lens for Sony E as another member has mentioned.

Is this an auto focus or manual focus?
Asked by: Jordan
The lens is both auto focus and manual focus. There is a switch on the left side of the lens barrel that allows the user to select either auto or manual. Nice to have this switch for critical focus or low light focus problems.

For those of you that have used both: how would you compare the 18-135 with the 16-70 Zeiss (which is what I own) other than a little more reach?
Asked by: David
The Sony 18-135mm lens is a good consumer lens with a useful range of focal lengths. The Zeiss 16-70mm lens is a pro lens with a constant f/4 aperture. The Zeiss lens features very high resolution, allowing for greater edge sharpness, and much better cropping capability than the 18-135mm lens.

question

The overview says 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS. 27-202.5mm equivalent zoom for APS-C-format E-mount mirrorless cameras , whereas the Specs say 18-135mm. Comparable 35mm focal length: 27-202.5mm .If the specs are correct, the overview should say 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS. 27-202.5mm for 35mm full-frame cameras . Can you please clarify?
Asked by: Abhinav S.
Hi Abhinav S., the lens is designed for APS-C format camera when it is used on the full-frame camera the effective focal length will also change to 27-202.5mm. Because the camera will adjust the sensor area to APS-C size in order to utilize the lens.
