Photography News: Sony introduces a new 18-135mm zoom lens for APS-C-format E-mount shooters, along with the new silver version of the popular a6300 mirrorless camera
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 05, 2018) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens, along with the new silver version of the Alpha a6300 mirrorless digital camera. Both products help expand Sony's E-mount APS-C-format system: the lens fills a gap in its standard zoom lens lineup while the silver camera complements the existing black version, for a choice in finishes.
Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens
The E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is a 27-202.5mm full-frame equivalent zoom, and an ideal all-around lens for a5000 and a6000-series shooters. Spanning a wide-angle to telephoto range, this versatile zoom is well suited to working in a wide variety of environments, and its lightweight design benefits all-day use. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is featured, which compensates for camera shake to help produce sharper imagery when shooting handheld. A linear AF motor also contributes to sharp imagery with its quick and accurate performance, and is designed for quiet operation to benefit video recording. Complementing the handling is a smart optical design, which makes use of an aspherical element to limit spherical aberrations and distortion along with two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range.
Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only, Silver)
Announced alongside the new lens is the silver version of the a6300, which is available as a body only or in a kit with the E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens. This new camera features the same spec set as the existing black a6300, including its 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, UHD 4K video recording, and 4D FOCUS with 425 phase-detection points.
