Overview

The Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS lens for NEX cameras is significantly smaller and lighter than comparable lenses, and is a high magnification zoom lens perfect for a wide range of shooting situations with Sony's NEX mirrorless cameras or handycam camcorders. With a compact size, achieved in part by downsizing the autofocus motor and optical image stabilization unit, the lens offers a powerful mix of versatility and image quality. This is perfect for shooting where a light, compact camera and lens combination is ideal.

With the broad focal length coverage of the lens, from 18mm wide angle to 200mm telephoto, it is also an ideal high-magnification "travel" lens. With it, you can capture grand landscapes, charming portraits, and even sports and nature shots. Optical SteadyShot (OSS) technology aids in this by cutting down on blur caused by camera shake, reducing the reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in dark environments.

Key Features:

  • For Sony Alpha NEX Cameras
  • 11x Telephoto Zoom Range
  • Optical SteadyShot Stabilization
  • Silent Autofocusing / Internal Motor
  • Single Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Lens
  • Dual Aspherical Lens Elements
  • Circular Aperture Blades

Compact and Lightweight

Significantly smaller and lighter than the previous Sony 18-200mm lens, this newer model is a great lens to cover a very wide range of shooting situations. This was achieved in part by downsizing the autofocus motor and optical image stabilization unit.

11x High-Magnification Zoom

The broad focal length coverage of the lens, from 18mm to 200mm, makes it an ideal high-magnification "travel" lens for a wide range of photography. Users can easily capture wide open landscapes, portraits with softly blurred backgrounds, and more. The telephoto capability of the lens makes it a good option for sports and nature photography as well.

High imaging performance

With two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and four aspherical elements, the lens employs the same popular, circular aperture found in many A-lenses, enabling backgrounds to have beautifully round, defocused bokeh effects.

Optical SteadyShot Stabilization

Equipped with Sony's Optical SteadyShot (OSS), the lens itself compensates for blur caused by camera shake no matter what camera it is attached to. In addition to reducing blur for normal handheld photography, Optical SteadyShot also reduces reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in dark environments.

Compatibility

This lens is compatible with all Sony Alpha NEX cameras and NEX Handycam camcorders.
