New quiet super zoom lens from Sony
Sony have revealed a new telephoto zoom lens for A-mount cameras - the SAL55300.
The DT 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SAM lens lends itself to portraits, wildlife and extreme sport photography and is optimised for all α A-mount camera models with APS-C sensors.
A 5.5x magnification range covers focal lengths from 55mm to 300mm. At maximum zoom, this represents 450mm super-telephoto (as 35mm equivalent) with 'power to capture the grace of animals in the wild or nail-biting track-side action' say Sony.
The quiet Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) makes an ideal partner for the high-speed AF tracking capabilities of cameras with Translucent Mirror Technology. Even when your subject’s moving swiftly, the lens is said to deliver crisply-focused images and Full HD video.
Featured on premium Sony G Lens models, an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass element reduces colour aberrations for improved image quality at medium to long focal lengths. An impressive MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) performance also assures flawless resolution of the finest details the brand claims.
The new SAL55300 A-mount interchangeable lens for A-mount cameras by Sony is available from mid-September 2012 with an expected RRP is £310.00.
