This is Sony's reimagination of the standard zoom. With a weather sealed body that can perform in the harshest conditions, this lens is made for the working photographer.
The fast, constant f/2.8 aperture and 24-70mm (36-105mm for Crop Sensors) focal length make this pro lens a go-to for video, portraits, events, and adventure photography. A nine-blade aperture creates stunning bokeh while an extreme aspherical element reduces aberrations, resulting in high-resolution images that fully express your talent for composition. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum by an extra-low-dispersion element and a super extra-low-dispersion element, while a proprietary Nano AR Coating takes care of any ghosting or flare.
Autofocus is whisper-quiet and features Sony's Direct Drive Super Sonic Wave Motor, an internal focusing autofocus system that uses ultrasonic oscillation technology. Manual focus is responsive, and it's easy to keep your shots sharp with a touch of the Focus Hold button.
This lens was designed to be on the move. Hood and zoom locks keep it safe when you're in motion and allow for ease of portability. And if you need to shoot during adverse weather, you won't have to worry since this lens has been built to resist dust and moisture.
