It also benefits from the Super SteadyShot image stabilization built into every Sony system DSLR and its wide-angle to medium telephoto range and compact, lightweight design is ideal for a wide range of shooting applications (35mm equivalent 36-105mm).
Compact Design, All-Around Versatility This superb 24-70mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of photo applications, a lens you can put on and leave on, providing large-aperture brightness that s easy to carry (35mm equivalent 36-105mm). Superior Large-Aperture Performance. Like other large-aperture Carl Zeiss lens designs, this f2.8 24-70mm zoom lens is simply magnificent in its ability to capture brilliant high-resolution images in low-light conditions requiring fully open aperture. In-Camera Image Stabilization. A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony system DSLR -- and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms. SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor). Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
Carl Zeiss T* Coating. Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss -- and this superb lens features T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. Multi-Element Design. The SAL-2470Z is designed with 17 lens elements in 13 groups, including 2 aspherical elements and 2 ED glass elements. Floating motion between the third and fourth groups of lens elements helps compensate for any aberrations caused by the zooming action of the lens. Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements. These precision lens elements correct distortion for sharper, more visually accurate images across the entire zoom range of the lens. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass. Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used in Carl Zeiss lenses to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.

DT Lens Design. The SAL-DT55200 is specially designed for the APS-size CCD imager used in Sony 945 (alpha) DSLR cameras. APS-size sensors are smaller than a 35mm-format film frame, so the focal distance to cover the same field of view can be about 2/3 shorter -- allowing a more compact lens design. Short Minimum Focusing Distance. With the ability to focus as closely as 3 feet (.95m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details. In-Camera Image Stabilization. A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony 945 system DSLR and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.
Multi-Element Design. The SAL-DT55200 is designed with 13 lens elements in 9 groups, with precision focusing performance and smooth zoom operation. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass. Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors. Advisory when using DT lenses with full-frame (35mm equivalent) DSLR cameras. Sony (alpha) lenses with the Digital Technology (DT) designation are ideal for use on APS-C size DSLR cameras and are not recommended for use with full frame DSLR camera bodies (such as the DSLR-A900). Although DT lenses can be used with full frame cameras, they can only realize a maximum of 11MP image size (when using the DSLR-A900), and are not guaranteed to provide accurate Auto Exposure performance.

Circular aperture. In general, if an aperture uses 7 or 9 aperture blades, then the shape of the aperture becomes a 7-sided or 9-sided polygon as the aperture is made smaller. However, this has a certain undesirable effect in that the defocusing of point light sources appears polygonal and not circular. Lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result. Internal focusing. Only the middle groups of the optical system are moved to achieve focusing, which leaves the total length of the lens intact. Benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you re using a polarizing filter. ADI flash metering. Advanced Distance Integration flash metering is available when the built-in flash, HVL-F56AM external flash, or HVL-F36AM external flash is used together with a lens that has a built-in distance encoder.* It provides automatic metering that is virtually unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds. Precise distance information is obtained through the encoder, and this data is used to compensate the flash output accordingly. This yields good exposures more reliably than conventional TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering, which can be thrown off by overly reflective or overly dark subjects and backgrounds. Focus hold button. Once you ve adjusted focus to where you want it, pressing this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera s custom settings.

The Sony SAL-135F28 is a unique telephoto lens for smooth, natural focus effects in foreground and background. This advanced STF (Smooth Transition Focus) telephoto lens incorporates an apodization optical element that distributes light rays to create smooth, aesthetically pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds that make sharp-focus subjects stand out more vividly. Mounted on the Sony (Alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides a 200mm focal length (35mm equivalent).
Smooth Transmission Focus. While subjects remain in sharp focus, out-of-focus backgrounds or foregrounds are blurred smoothly and evenly with gradation that thickens toward the edges of the frame for a pleasing aesthetic effect. Transmissive Brightness. After light passes through the apodization element, the lens aperture of f2.8 yields a T (transmissive brightness) equivalent of 4.5; a manual aperture ring can adjust T setting from 4.5 to 6.7. Wide Focus Ring. The dedicated manual focusing system is controlled by a wide focus ring that s comfortable to hold and gives you a solid, hands-on feel for pinpoint focusing of your subject. Circular Aperture. Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
