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 polarizing filters.
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.
