Sony 16-80mm Features

  • 5X Zoom Range:
  • Smaller and lighter, it s the only 5X zoom lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera.
  • Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements:
  • Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improvepicture quality across the entire zoom range.
  • Circular Aperture:
  • Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
  • Auto Clutch:
  • In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate, and in manual focusing, a wider focus ring provides a solid, hands-on feel.
