This ultra-wide-angle compact and lightweight is zoom lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Sleek size and versatile range of wide-angle focal lengths make it ideal for landscape, nature, and architectural photography.
Optical design incorporates both extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements in order to correct a variety of aberrations and distortions for sharper, clearer image quality and accurate color rendering. Frog Eye Coating is applied to repel dust and moisture from the front element of the lens when working in extreme environmental conditions. The manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture changes to suit video applications, and the rear of the lens is threaded to accept 37mm screw-in filters.
