Lightweight and compact lens
The housing is made of lightweight components, which translates into a very low lens weight of only 146 g. The small size of this glass will certainly appeal to the users of Sony’s mirrorless cameras. It is a great lens for weekend walks and holiday trips.
Fast and accurate autofocus
The lens is equipped with a DSM stepper motor, which makes setting the focus extremely precise, fast and quiet. The accurate autofocus works well during shooting as well as filming.
Manual sharpening mode is supported by Focu-by-wire technology. It facilitates precise sharpening while photographing details and playing with macro photography.
The simple optical design of the lens consists of 8 lenses arranged in 7 groups. One element is optical glass with very low dispersion – responsible for correcting chromatic aberration. The other elements are coated with a nano-coating that reduces glare and flare when working against light.
Minimum sharpening distance is 45 cm, maximum mapping scale 0.14x. The aperture consisting of 7 leaves closes up to f/16. 49 mm diameter filters can be screwed to the lens.
The lens is equipped with a micro USB interface, thanks to which we can update its firmware. The latest software (downloadable on the manufacturer’s website) ensures more efficient autofocusing and compatibility with new cameras.
