The Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS Lens features extra-low
dispersion glass, a broad zoom range and aluminum alloy construction.
On an APS-C camera, this zoom lens has a 82.5-315mm focal length
range, suitable for event photography and portraiture alike. Internal
focusing and linear motor-driven AF system help create responsive yet
quiet focus while minimizing mechanical noise. Additionally, a separate
manual focusing ring capable of Direct Manual Focus allows seamless
transitions from AF to manual focusing.
Two extra-low dispersion
elements, combined with Sony's Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image
stabilization, improve the overall quality of images captured at the
telephoto end of the zoom range, especially while shooting in low-light
conditions. OSS is capable of reducing the appearance of camera shake by
up to four stops. An aspherical focusing lens located in the center of
the optical path help to reduce aberrations throughout the zoom range as
well as improve the AF response time of the lens.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is capable of
compensating for camera shake up to four f-stops, useful for handheld
shooting in low-light conditions at the super-telephoto end of the focal
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements and an aspherical focus
lens help to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the
zoom range while maintaining image sharpness and clarity.
Zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of
82.5-315mm, providing a broad range of telephoto perspectives.
Internal zoom and focus design helps to maintain a constant lens
length with a non-rotating front element to support efficient use of
Zoom lever allows greater control over the speed of zoom using either variable or fixed-speed settings.
Internal AF drive utilizing a linear motor and aspherical focus
lens to achieve smooth focus while minimizing mechanical noise.
Direct Manual Focus permits autofocus override without switching the camera's focus mode.
