Quiet, quick, all-purpose telephoto zoom

DT 55–300 mm F4.5–5.6 SAM (SAL55300)

Compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens offers smooth, silent operation and covers the all-important medium-to-long distance telephoto range.

APS-C A-mount

Compatible with 35 mm Full Frame , or APS-C format A-mount cameras.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh

Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing, or bokeh.

Refined optical performance

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and color fidelity throughout the image, even at large aperture settings.

Smooth, silent autofocus

Built into the lens, the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) is significantly smoother and quieter than conventional camera-coupled autofocus drive systems.

Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony featuring built-in SteadyShot™ image stabilization and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld.
