The Sony SAL-18250 DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Autofocus Lens is a compact, wide-angle to long-telephoto zoom lens specifically designed for the Sony Alpha and Minolta Digital SLR cameras. This long zoom range translates into a 14x zoom ratio. This lens is relatively very compact, and the optics have been optimized for the small diameter image circle in order to work with the APS-C size CCD used with digital SLR cameras. When used with a digital SLR camera, the equivalent focal length for this lens is 27-375mm, ideal for snapshots, portraits, interiors and more - an excellent all-around lens to travel with.
Note! Not compatible with 35mm or "full-frame" digital SLR cameras.
- DT lenses employ a new optical system that is specifically designed for digital SLR cameras which incorporate an APS-C size CCD image sensor.
- ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
- Internal Focusing system eliminates front lens rotation, allowing the use of a circular polarizing filter.
- A 7-blade circular aperture for pleasing defocused effects.
