Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a Sony camera with SteadyShot™ INSIDE and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld, even zoomed in.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh

Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing, or bokeh.

Refined optical performance

Aspherical lens elements minimize distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and color fidelity.

Focus quickly and quietly

Internal focusing reduces minimum focusing distances and allows fast autofocus response while a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) ensures silent operation.
