Reel Your Subjects Nearer to You,
Without Regard to Distance

Sony SEL55210 55-210mm F4.5-6.3mm Lens The SEL 55-210mm F4.5-6.3mm Sony Lens delivers the world to NEX camera owners in a big telephoto zoom lens. It acts like an 82-315 mm lens on full-frame DSLR or 35 mm SLR cameras, It has a all-round short-through-long telephoto zoom range. The wide spread is terrific for reeling your subjects in nearer to you, without regard to the distance they are from you. Internal focusing provides smooth, responsive AF, with a minimum amount of noise--just perfect for shooting video.

Image stabilization is most important on a telephoto lens to retard camera shake. The Optical SteadyShot provides you with the ability to acquire sharp, clear images (in still or video) yet in poor lighting or while zooming into far off subjects. A pair ofExtra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements assist in restraining chromatic aberration color bleed at every focal length, so you'll have exceptional image quality through the entire zoom range. You will want to keep this lens nearby at most of the time for those dramatic long-range shots.

The SEL55210 features a wide 82 mm through 315 mm (like a 35mm SLR) focal range. Great for nature or sports photography. While the Internal focus allows smooth, responsive AF with a minimum amount of noise. Just right for video shooting. The Optical SteadyShot image stabilizer allows for easier to achievement clear, stable photos and movies in poor-light or while zooming in for those distant subjects. There are a pair of Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements slow down chromatic aberrations and color bleeding through every focal length providing excellent quality of images throughout the whole zoom range.
