Capture fast action interior scenes with the capability to focus quickly and zoom from super-wide-angle to wide-angle with the Sony SAL 11-18 zoom lens.

With the capability to focus quickly and zoom from super-wide-angle to wide-angle, this lens captures interior scenes with greater flexibility and handles fast action in close environments. Its DT design is ideally suited for the APS-size CCD imager of the Sony (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera -- and its 35mm-equivalent zoom range of 16.5mm to 27mm gives you wide latitude in framing and composition.

Internal Focusing System - Lens elements at the rear of the optical system move, allowing rapid auto-focus response.

Aspherical Lens Elements - Aspherical elements correct frame distortion to provide more visually accurate super-wide-angle shots.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you photos with sharper focus and more accurate color separation.

Circular Aperture - In low-light shots or nightscapes, out-of-focus light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

Comments about Sony Sony 11-18mm DT f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens:

wasn't sure when I bought it how much I would use it but it is now far and away my favorite lens. Just awesome for landscapes here in the mountains of Colorado where my average F stop is over F9 so the small aperture doesn't affect me too much. Certainly it would be nice with a bigger aperture at times - especially with Sony's weakness at higher ISO settings. This lens would be hot on a film Minolta or when Sony comes out with their full frame sensor.

 
A good lens.
