The SAL18250 offers significant "reach" at the long end – useful for shooting distant subjects such as sports or wildlife – plus an 18mm wide end for scenic shots.
Compatible with 35mm Full Frame , or APS-C format A-mount cameras.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
Pair the lens with a camera by Sony featuring built-in SteadyShot™ image stabilisation and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld.
