Made for Sony A-mount camera bodies, the new 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 telephoto zoom offers an 8x (approx.) zoom range.
The lens features a SAM design to assure smooth, rapid, whisper-quiet autofocus operation and Direct Manual Focus for accurate fine-tuning of focus, says Sony.
This lens will also be offered as a kit lens with select Sony A-mount camera bodies.
The SAL18135 lens will be available as a stand-alone product in July for about $550, and will be offered as a kit lens with Sony A-mount cameras beginning in August.
