A versatile standard zoom, the silver E 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens from Sony is a wide-angle to short-telephoto designed for APS-C-format E-mount mirrorless cameras. The 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range is benefitted by Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which compensates for up to four stops of camera shake to produce sharper images when shooting handheld in difficult lighting situations. Also contributing to notable sharpness, the optical design incorporates aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity and minimized distortion. Rounding out this 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 is a sleek form factor that is well-matched to E-mount mirrorless cameras, along with a durable aluminum alloy finish.
