Discover complete performance with this Sony 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 camera lens bundle. It lets you start off wide with the 24mm wide-angle focal length, and itcovers traditional portrait ranges, mid-telephoto and long telephoto ranges right up to 240mm. This gives this zoom lens extraordinary versatility when you're taking photos outside, as you can record intimate portraits of animals and show them in their natural surroundings or keep an eye on sporting action. Groups of aspherical lens elements and extra-low dispersion glass along with specialized coatings prevent distortion and diffraction from affecting your photos and creating ghosting, flare or chromatic or optical effects.
In addition to the lens, this Sony 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 camera lens bundle includes a carrying bag, a series of filters and a full software suite so that you can create great photos. The filters include a polarizing filter, a UV filter and a neutral density filter so that you can create a variety of effects for maximum impact, while the software suite lets you manipulate photos and videos to createmovies and adjust settings for images create the effects and tell your story. This lens bundle also includes a comprehensive cleaning kit to keep your Sony 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 camera lens bundle in top shape.
A full-frame 24mm to 240mm zoom range allows this one lens to cover an extensive variety of shooting situations with 10x effective zoom range, making it ideal for landscape, snapshots, portraits and travel where reducing luggage is a priority.
The ability to switch from wide angle to telephoto without having to change lenses also means that more of those fleeting moments that make great shots will be captured.
The advanced optics include 5 aspherical elements and 1 ED glass element, achieving high-quality performance in a compact overall design. An advanced linear motor drives the focusing mechanism for quick, smooth response throughout the extended zoom range. Handheld telephoto shots and low-light photography are facilitated by built-in Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization. Like all other FE lenses, the design is dust and moisture resistant.
When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This 'bokeh' effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocused points of light. alpha 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.
Aspherical lens elements
Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped "aspherical" elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight.
Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important 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.
