Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Zoom OSS Lens for NEX Cameras

Sony's 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS E-Mount is a powerful zoom lens for NEX series cameras and is not recommended for full-frame sensors. This versatile lens sports a 11x optical zoom and a 35mm equivalent of 27-300mm. You will enjoy spectacular results in many applications including portraits, action sports or even wildlife photography. The four aspherical elements of its optical design help to minimize chromatic aberration. Its circular aperture creates pleasing bokeh effects. Focusing is a breeze thanks to a smooth and quiet motor which drives its internally moving components. Sony's optical SteadyShot image stabilization ensures that you will reliably get crisp and clear shots. This lens accepts 67mm filters.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization

Sensitive gyro sensors designed to detect even the slightest or most minute movement are built into the lens. The Optical Image Stabilization system detects these tiny shakes which occur when shooting. This lens features highly precise, virtually silent linear motors that are found in high-end professional Sony camcorders. The result is reliable and effective image stabilization for blur free photos and videos.

Extra Low Dispersion Glass

Sony's Low Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations, which becomes more of a problem as focal lengths get longer. By eliminating the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different points at the image plane. This means your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of defracting light into an unwanted rainbow of colors. Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.

Aspherical Elements

Sony's aspherical lens design creates a more complex surface profile, while also reducing lens size and weight. Specially shaped “aspherical” elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, translating to high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight. The design further ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focal range, while delivering incredible sharpness up to the periphery of the image. 

Distance Encoder

Distance Encoder technology delivers high precision flash metering that is unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds. The distance encoder is a lens component that directly detects the position of the focusing mechanism, and sends a signal to the CPU in order to measure distance to the subject.

Internal Focusing (IF)

Sony's Internal Focusing feature allows you to focus a lens without changing its size. With IF Lenses all optical movement is restricted to the interior of the lens barrel, providing for a lighter, more efficient design. Faster focusing is produced by a lighter and compact focusing lens group.

Circular Aperture

The circular aperture of this lens creates pleasing natural Bokeh effects. While Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocused points of light. This lens overcomes this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops
