Constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range enhances shooting convenience
A versatile mid-range zoom for APS-C-format E-mount cameras, this 18-105mm lens provides a wide-angle to short telephoto 27-157.5mm equivalent focal length that works for anything from vast landscapes to tight portraits to distant subjects.
A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved clarity and colour neutrality
Three aspherical elements, including one Advanced Aspherical (AA), are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations
Optical Steady Shot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds; This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera’s sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur
An internal focus design contributes to fast autofocus speeds and the minimum focus distance of 1.5′ and easier handling as the lens maintains its overall length
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques
