Measuring 83.4 x 113.3mm (3.28 x 4.5 inches) and weighing 663 g (23.4 oz) this 36-157.5mm (35mm equivalent) lens covers a wide range that is ideal for travel, landscape, nature and portrait photography. Offering fast and quiet AF performance, thanks to the incorporation of Sony’s Direct Drive SSM system, the lens offers sharp, vivid images as well, due to three ED glass elements and Sony’s Nano AR Coating. The range and speed does not preclude capturing great close-up photos as well, with a 0.38 metre (1.25 ft) minimum focusing distance; bokeh is further enhanced by the 9-bladed circular aperture design. The lens is also dust and moisture resistant that can handle light rain or windy conditions.
