Outstanding clarity and contrast

Sony’s original Nano AR Coating technology effectively suppresses lens surface reflections for dramatically reduced flare and ghosting, resulting in notably enhanced overall image quality. The Nano AR Coating is used in an advanced optical design that also achieves high contrast and excellent resolution throughout the zoom range.

Sharp, well-defined reproduction

The inclusion of an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element in an advanced optical design effectively suppresses chromatic aberration that can be a problem in telephoto lenses, providing superior image quality throughout the zoom range. This lens can also produce gorgeous beautifully smooth background bokeh when needed.
