Sony’s vast expertise brings you the world’s lightest full-frame F4 wide-angle power-zoom lens, giving today’s content creators refined imagery, expression, and control. A new power zoom system in a compact lens is suitable for small crews or solo shooting. It is ideal for stills too, with beautiful G lens rendering and astonishing AF performance.
This compact, lightweight, full-frame constant-F4 wide-angle power zoom lens delivers superb G Lens image quality. It includes two AA (advanced aspherical) elements, a Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element, and an ED element to effectively suppress distortion and aberration. A circular aperture and controlled spherical aberration enhance bokeh quality, while 0.24-metre minimum focus enables stunning close-ups.In addition to smooth, versatile power zoom, this remarkably compact lens minimises jarring angle of view shifts that can occur when focusing or zooming so that stable, high-quality movie footage can be easily captured. Focus, zoom, and aperture operation are also extremely quiet, greatly reducing noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.A new power zoom system is driven by four XD Linear Motors for the first time in an α lens provides smooth control with the immediacy of manual zoom. Even subtle zoom ring rotation is precisely detected and instantaneously converted to zoom operation. A continuously variable zoom lever makes it easy to execute super-slow constant-speed zooms, and zoom can be remotely controlled while the camera is mounted on a gimbal.
Three-ring control: zoom, focus, and aperture
Independent zoom, focus, and aperture rings on this compact lens offer flexible, intuitive creative control. Responsive zoom control is indispensable for movies, and Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly to subtle control when focusing manually. The aperture ring has an aperture click switch that allows the click stops to be turned off when smooth, seamless aperture adjustment is required.
Feature-packed yet incredibly lightweight
Although this compact wide-angle zoom lens weighs just 353 g (12.5 oz), it does not compromise functionality or performance in any way. Its length remains constant while focusing and zooming for optimal balance and handling, which also makes it ideal for gimbal-mounted movie shooting. Impressive portability and a dust/moisture resistant design4 make it a great choice for just about any subject or situation.
