With a 27-82.5mm equivalent range and maximum aperture range of f/3.5-5.6, users will enjoy a compact and lightweight kit.

A variable f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture helps ensure that lens size and weight is kept to a minimum.
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.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
By incorporating a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) unit into the lens itself to drive the focusing element group, this lens is able to deliver smoother, quieter, and faster performance that coupled systems.
Users can focus as close as 9.8", providing a maximum magnification ratio of 0.34x for close-up imaging.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to learn the basic. This product comes with the kit Sony 58 and this have some enhancements overall in the engine, is more silent and smooth. It is good to learn the basic things about the Photography, you can do good portraits and close-ups. In low light issues don't work so well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pay for what you get! Received this lens a few days ago new in box. That is all I got from Sony was just the lens not even a lens hood. Ordered two other Sony lens lens hoods where included with these lens and they where the same price. The lens works great and purchased my own lens hood. So buyer's beware of what you purchase.
