The first E-mount medium telephoto macro lens with built-in image stabilization delivers outstanding G Lens quality: stunning resolution at up to 1:1 magnification plus gorgeous background bokeh when required, even when shooting handheld. A floating focus mechanism ensures that consistently superior optical performance is achieved at all focusing distances.
Image-wide clarity from macro to infinity
A compact floating focus mechanism maintains consistently superior optical performance throughout the image at any focusing distance.
Precise, quiet focus for stills and movies
Dual DDSSM (Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor) drive systems position the heavy focus element groups required for full frame macro photography quickly, precisely, and quietly.
Sharp and clear without a tripod
The first a-series macro lens with built-in image stabilization makes it possible to shoot sharp macro images handheld.
Impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist’s vision.
MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.
