The Sony 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 E-Mount Lens (Silver) from Sony
is designed for use on Alpha NEX digital cameras. This standard zoom
lens has a 35mm format equivalent to a 27-82.5mm lens. Covering angles
of view from 76 to 29 degrees, this wide to medium zoom lens is ideal
for a variety of subjects including portraits and landscapes. Plus, with
a short focusing distance of only 9.7" (0.25 m), you can get in tight
for interesting close-ups.
The Sony SEL 1855 is built with 11
elements in 9 groups with 4 aspherical surfaces so you get clear images
without aberrations or distortion. Its internal motor allows for smooth
and quiet autofocusing, which you will love even while you are capturing
images in the camera's HD movie mode.
The compact size (only 2.4", 6.0cm) of the lens and light weight (6.9
oz, 194g) perfectly complement Sony's Alpha NEX cameras which
incorporate a huge image sensor into a very compact frame. The results
are high-quality still and HD movie captures without the extra size and
weight of standard DSLR cameras.
Designed to match your Alpha NEX camera, the SEL 1855 standard
zoom lens is lightweight and features smooth and silent autofocusing
while offering an all-purpose focal range for beautiful shots.
In the 35mm equivalent, this lens covers subjects from
wide-angle (27mm) to midrange (82.5mm); ideal for capturing subjects
such as close-up portraits to expansive landscapes.
