Sony DT 55-200mm f4-5.6 SAM II LensCK
Sony DT 55-200mm f4-5.6 SAM Lens is a medium to telephoto lens with internal focus motor offering 35mm equivalent focal lengths of 82.5-300mm on a Sony Alpha digital SLR. It is both compact and lightweight, making it a useful ''take everywhere'' lens. As one of Sony's DT lenses it has been designed specifically for use with their APS-C sized digital sensors in the Sony Alpha range of cameras. The inclusion of the SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) makes for smooth AF operation.
Covering a variety of telephoto focal lengths, this 55-200mm zoom is designed for APS-C format A-mount cameras, where it will provide a far-reaching 82.5-300mm equivalent focal length.
A variable f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture helps ensure that lens size and weight is kept to a minimum.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
By incorporating a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) unit into the lens itself to drive the focusing element group, this lens is able to deliver smoother, quieter, and faster performance than coupled systems. Also, the design helps to achieve a minimum focus distance of 3.1'.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
