manufacturer description

The superb macro-focus lens for both close-up and distant subjects. This versatile macro-focus lens covers a wide range of photographic applications, from close-up nature subjects to midrange telephoto shots -- making it ideal to carry on location or in the field. Mounted on the Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, it provides a 150mm focal length (35mm equivalent) -- and its superb sharpness and clarity give you professional results in every shooting situation.

Sharp Macro Focusing:
You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders -- and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too.

Bright f2.8 Aperture:
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system of the Sony  (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in low light.

High Contrast and Resolution:
Excellent optical precision gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject.

Focus Range Limiter:
Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus -- Close-up Range, or Telephoto Range.

Focus Hold Button:
For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.

Auto Clutch:
In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- which improves handling ease.

Circular Aperture:
Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. - Home of the alpha system photographer
