Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro Overview

Get up close and personal with some of the tiniest subjects with the 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Sony. A telephoto prime designed for full-frame A-mount cameras, this lens' main selling point is the minimum focus distance of just 13.8", permitting for true 1:1 magnification. It also has a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 and can be stopped down to f/32 for advanced depth of field control. In order to guarantee maximum image quality at these close-focus distances, the lens uses double-floating lens elements in its optical design, helping to combat aberrations.

The 100mm Macro is made for smooth operation and handling, with both a focus hold button and focus range limiter providing tactile controls to speed up shooting. It also has an Auto Clutch mechanism that prevents the focusing ring from rotating while using autofocus. Additionally, it has a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth, rounded bokeh.

This telephoto prime macro lens is designed for full-frame Sony A-mount DSLRs, and can also be used on APS-C models where it provides a 150mm equivalent focal length.
True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with a 13.8" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects. A focusing distance and magnification scale is also printed on the top of the lens to aid in more technical applications.
An aperture range of f/2.8 to f/32 allows for operation in a wide range of shooting situations and enables photographers to better control depth of field.
Double-floating lens elements help to minimize aberrations, especially when focusing at extremely close distances.
An Auto Clutch mechanism prevents the focusing ring from rotating when the lens is set to autofocus, allowing for easier, and more natural feeling control over the lens.
A focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between a set limited range or full for improving focus speed, and a focus hold button is also featured to manually stop the autofocus at a specified point.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
