Designed for Sony's line of APS-C-format E-mount cameras, this lens will provide a normal-length 45mm equivalent focal length, which is a good option for general purpose shooting.
True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with a 3.7" minimum focusing distance and a 0.9" minimum working distance for capturing close-ups of your subjects.
An aperture range of f/3.5 to f/22 allows for operation in a wide range of shooting situations and enables photographers to better control depth of field.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
An internal focus design helps contribute to fast autofocusing speeds and prevents the lens' overall length from changing during use.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
