Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens

   

Equipped for wide and telephoto subjects, the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is a general-purpose zoom that won’t take up much space in your camera bag. With a 27-202.5mm zoom equivalent on APS-C cameras, this lens adds extra reach to the range of typical “everyday” lenses. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization ensures sharp capture when working handheld or at slow shutter speeds, and a series of specialized elements helps to achieve high color accuracy and sharpness throughout the zoom range. Focusing is responsive, accurate, and quiet due to a linear autofocus motor, and a dedicated AF/MF switch on the side of the lens makes fine-tuning focus simple and intuitive.
