Lightweight and compact design
Compact (E-mount APS-C format) and lightweight (11.5 oz [325 g]), this lens features an optical design optimized for short flange focal distances that makes it small and manageable on its own while also contributing to notable reductions in overall system size, weight, and portability.
7.5x high-magnification APS-C zoom lens
A high zoom ratio provides a versatile 27-mm to 202.5-mm range (35-mm format equivalent, 7.5x optical zoom) that covers a broad spectrum of subjects and situations: scenery, nature, portraits, and general day-to-day photography.
Optical design achieves high resolution
A new optical design that includes one aspherical element contributes to consistently high resolution from the image center right out to the edges, while two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration.
Built-in optical image stabilization
When shooting scenes from a handheld position, particularly night scenes or in dimly lit interiors, built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to shoot blur-free images handheld.
Close-ups with background bokeh
An impressive minimum focusing distance of just 0.45 m (1.45 ft) (0.29x max. magnification) makes it easy to shoot close-ups that take advantage of the lens's beautiful background bokeh.
Bokeh quality is enhanced by a circular aperture design.
Fast, precise, quiet focus
Advanced linear motor technology quietly drives the focus group with outstanding speed and precision, making the most of the high AF performance provided by the 6000 series. Accurate focus is more easily achieved for stills and movies, even with moving subjects.
