Sony 18-105mm F/4.0 Overview
Have all the essential focal lengths covered with this E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens from Sony. Designed for APS-C-format E-mount cameras, this lens offers an extremely versatile 27-157.5mm zoom range and has a constant f/4 aperture for consistency through all focal lengths. Making this lens a great choice for both stills and video is the implementation of a power zoom mechanism and Handycam technology that provides smooth, quiet zooming and focusing. Also, it uses two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements to combat aberrations for crisp, clean images.On top of these features, the lens is equipped with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to help reduce the effects of camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths. The lens benefits from an internal focus design that ensures that the overall length of the lens does not change during focusing. Additionally, it offers a minimum focus distance of 1.5' and uses a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.
One lens for diverse shooting needs
Having to change lenses as you shoot can slow you down and introduce unwanted changes in image quality. Whether you shoot stills or movies, the 18-105mm (full-frame equivalent = 27-157.5mm) zoom range and quality of this fine G Lens will be more than enough for most shooting situations, plus you have the added advantage of smooth power zoom.
Superb rendering at any focal length
An advanced optical design that incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and three aspherical elements offers enviable G Lens image quality throughout the zoom range. Excellent sharpness and contrast are maintained through the image area, supporting natural, true-to-life rendering that deftly captures even the subtlest visual nuances.
Zoom technology inherited from pro gear
Sony Handycam® technology has been implemented in the SELP18105G to ensure smooth, quiet zooming that is ideally suited to moviemaking. Focusing benefits from the same type of pro-level technology, providing smooth, quiet operation that is also responsive. The length of the lens remains constant while zooming or focusing. Zoom reversing is available after software update.
Continuously variable zoom speed control
Fingertip control of zoom speed via the zoom lever on the lens barrel or the zoom ring makes it possible to zoom smoothly while maintaining a sure, steady grip on the camera. This can be a significant advantage for consistent, stable handling, especially when shooting movies.
Constant F4 maximum aperture
A constant F4 aperture across the entire 18–105mm range means you can zoom and reframe as necessary without having to think about changing exposure settings. Even at maximum telephoto zoom you can usually shoot without having to boost ISO sensitivity and potentially increase noise.
Beautiful G Lens bokeh
G Lenses are renowned for their beautifully smooth background bokeh. A 7-blade circular aperture design is part of the reason, enhancing smoothness and producing natural highlights. Smooth background defocusing can make the in-focus subject really stand out in images with almost three-dimensional depth.
Sharp and clear in any situation
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld. Sharp, clear night scenes or indoor shots in dim lighting can be captured without the need to boost ISO sensitivity and risk increased noise.
