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.

Great Travel Lens

By Justin
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-21

I'm a hobbyist photographer. I've been using Sony E-mounts for about 10 years (NEX-6, a6000, a6600). This lens blows away the old 16-50 kit lens they used to include with a new E-mount camera. I took only this lens and my a6600 on a work trip to California. I wanted to see if it could be used as my only lens for street, architecture and nature photography. The image quality was excellent (I was constantly pixel peeping after each photo or burst of photos). Will this replace your best prime lenses? Probably not. Is this an excellent all around travel lens? Totally. I'll no longer have anxiety about which lens(es) to bring when I have limited space in my luggage.

An APS-C lens that I like

At half the size and 58% of the weight of a dslr lens of similar focal length (27-202mm), this lens is useful for travel and when you're not on assignment and you're shooting for yourself and family. I don't normally buy aps-c format, but after purchasing a mirrorless Sony, and reading the reviews, i took a chance. I love the bokeh. I think Sony took this into consideration, because a lot of their mirrorless lenses have very nice bokeh. This lens is also incredibly sharp, but like with other lenses, stay under f/11.

I use this lens with my Sony a6400 camera. The photos are extremely sharp, which allows me to do extensive cropping and still have photos that are great. The lens and camera are light enough to carry on long walks without any problem. I highly recommend it.

I love a nice wide shot while traveling and this lens is perfect for on the go. It's fairly light and compact without losing much quality. Excellent for grabbing quick travel stills or video and great to zoom in quickly when desired.
