Superb Sharpness at Fully Open Aperture In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony (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 Backgrounds 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. Auto Clutch In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- and in manual focusing, you ll have a solid, hands-on feel.
