A brilliant lens for portraits, low light and midrange telephoto shooting. It´s a beautiful piece of glass -- and for intimate or low-light portraits, fashion shots, and quick candid photographs with superior visual accuracy, this professional lens will satisfy the most uncompromising demands. Its performance at fully open aperture is astonishingly precise -- and its 35mm-equivalent 125.7mm focal length gives you sharp midrange close-ups and natural, distortion-free portraits at relaxed distances.
Superb Sharpness at Fully Open Aperture:
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system of the Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this superb Carl Zeiss® lens achieves pinpoint sharpness -- even working with hand-held camera by available light.
Excellent Contrast Reproduction:
Precision optical design and advanced T* coatings help to reduce flare and increase contrast.
Smooth, visually pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds give portraits and close-ups an extra dimension of beauty.
Focus Hold Button:
For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing even in continuous advance mode -- and focus lock can also be set on the spot-focus center frame area.
In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- and in manual focusing, you´ll have a solid, hands-on feel.
