New Interchangeable Lenses for α E-mount Cameras
has also introduced three new lenses for its E-mount line of
interchangeable lens cameras, adding to the system's flexibility.
The new SELP1650 lens is an extremely light, compact 16-50mm F3.5-5.6
powered zoom model that measures only 29.9 mm thick (when fully
retracted) and contains built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization
for clearer handheld images.
Additionally, it features a
dual-function ring that controls both power zoom and manual focus,
depending on the camera's focus mode. With the camera set to AF the
control ring adjusts smooth, high-speed zoom with small hand movements.
With the camera in MF mode, the ring controls manual focus. A smooth
power zoom dial makes the lens particularly useful for shooting video.
new SEL35F18 lens is a wide aperture 35mm focal length model with a
bright maximum aperture of f/1.8 and built-in Optical SteadyShot image
stabilization. It offers excellent optical sharpness, clarity, and
background defocus in both still images and HD video, and is
exceptionally light and easy to carry.
The new SEL1018 lens is a
super-wide angle zoom with a maximum aperture of f/4.0 across its range
of 10-18mm and built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization.
Adopting the super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass which reduces color
aberration, the lens is capable of producing dramatic perspective
effects and is ideal for shooting landscapes and interiors.
