About the Sony 11-18mm

Capture fast action interior scenes with the capability to focus quickly and zoom from super-wide-angle to wide-angle with the Sony SAL-1118 zoom lens. With the capability to focus quickly and zoom from super-wide-angle to wide-angle, this lens captures interior scenes with greater flexibility and handles fast action in close environments.

Its DT design is ideally suited for the APS-size CCD imager of the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, and its 35mm-equivalent zoom range of 16.5mm to 27mm gives you wide latitude in framing and composition. Lens elements at the rear of the optical system move, allowing rapid auto-focus response. Aspherical elements correct frame distortion to provide more visually accurate super-wide-angle shots.

ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you photos with sharper focus and more accurate color separation. In low-light shots or nightscapes, out-of-focus light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

One reason why the Sony 11-18mm is popular is because of its Fast / accurate auto-focus.

  • Front and Rear Lens Caps
