Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Compatibility: This lens is compatible with the Sony Alpha-series
digital SLR cameras.
ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass: ED glass minimizes flare and
reduces color abnormalities, giving you sharp and clear shots, even at full telephoto
Lens Hood: The included lens hood allows for better shooting
in bright light. A lens hood can be used to reduce flare in bright light areas to
ensure maximum image quality.
Note: When using the built-in camera
flash, make sure to remove the lens hood to avoid blocking
the light from the flash.
Focusing: This lens can be used for auto and manual focusing.
To focus manually, set the camera body to manual focus and adjust the focus ring
on the lens.
Circular Aperture: The aperture blades of this lens form a
near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, so spot-light sources
have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
Zoom Lock: The Zoom Lock fixes the lens in its shortest position,
so it won't move during transport.
