What is the power zoom feature for Sony lenses?

    IMPORTANT: Lenses that have the P designation in the model number (SELP1635G) are power zoom lenses. Check your operations guide and model information for details.

    Power zoom is a feature that provides motorized control of the zoom feature entirely within the lens, offering flexible options for recording such as:

    • Multiple methods to control the zoom capabilities when connected to a compatible camera:
      • Zoom control with the camera.
      • On the lens with the zoom ring.
      • On the lens with the zoom rocker switch.
      • Power zoom functions can be assigned to custom function buttons for increased flexibility.
      • Manual zoom capability on demand.
    • A smaller lens form factor as elements move on the inside of the lens and it does not expand or contract.
    • Smooth movements and variable zoom speed control.
