manufacturer description

A high-performance telephoto lens with the widest aperture in its class. Whether you’re shooting a distant mountain peak or a beautiful orchid at arm’s length, this superb telephoto lens provides amazing image quality. Its f/1.8 aperture makes it the brightest telephoto lens in its class -- and with 35mm-equivalent 202.5mm focal length plus the ability to focus tightly on objects closer than three feet away, it can cover an amazing range of photographic assignments.

Ultra-Bright Images:
At fully open f/1.8 aperture (the best in its class), this high-performance 135mm lens creates amazingly bright telephoto images.

Superb Sharpness:
In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system of the Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens gives you excellent results even working with hand-held camera by available light.

Close-up Focusing:
You can capture professional-quality images of both faraway scenes and objects closer than three feet.

Internal Focusing System:
Internal lens elements move to increase auto-focus speed to help you catch quick action.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass:
Two ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear telephoto shots. - Home of the alpha system photographer
