Sony lens technology cancels aberration

An innovative optical design that includes three aspherical elements corrects field curvature and aberration for outstanding resolution throughout the lens's wide 15mm field of view. One ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element further suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduce peripheral colour fringing.

Breathtaking close-up bokeh

This lens's 0.17m minimum manual focus (0.2m when using AF) and 0.15x maximum magnification (0.12x when using AF) let you get close to the subject while producing beautiful bokeh. Shoot close-up subjects against deep background bokeh for truly memorable images. Impressive close-up capability is an advantage for movies as well as stills.
