Evolved image quality

This compact, lightweight, full-frame power zoom lens delivers superb G Lens image quality. It includes two AA (advanced aspherical) elements, a Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element, and an ED element to effectively suppress distortion and aberration. A circular aperture and controlled spherical aberration enhance bokeh quality, while 0.24 meter minimum focus enables stunning close ups.

Designed for polished movie imagery

In addition to smooth, versatile power zoom, this remarkably compact lens minimises jarring angle of view shifts that can occur when focusing or zooming. Allowing for stable, high quality movie footage that can be easily captured. Focus, zoom, and aperture operation are also extremely quiet, reducing noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.

Smooth power zoom with snappy response

A new power zoom system driven by four XD Linear Motors for the first time in an α lens provides smooth control with the immediacy of manual zoom. Even subtle zoom ring rotation is precisely detected and instantaneously converted to zoom operation. A continuously variable zoom lever makes it easy to execute super-slow constant-speed zooms, and zoom can be remotely controlled while the camera is mounted on a gimbal.

XD Linear Motors deliver stunning AF

Two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors deliver quick, quiet, low-vibration autofocus while maintaining compact lens dimensions. Fast and reliable AF can smoothly track subjects when shooting high frame rate movies. With a compatible body it is possible to maintain accurate focus while shooting stills continuously at up to 30 frames per second. Subjects are smoothly tracked even while zooming.

Three-ring control: zoom, focus, and aperture

Independent zoom, focus, and aperture rings on this compact lens offer flexible and creative control. Responsive zoom control is crucial for movies, and Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly to subtle control when focusing manually. There is an aperture click switch that allows you to seamlessly switch between a smooth aperture (for video use) or a clicked aperture.
