Sony 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 OSS E-Mount Lens

This lens is designed for cameras with an APS-C size sensor, providing a convenient and versatile zoom range that's perfect for a range of photography styles, such as landscape and wildlife. With a short minimum focusing distance, you can get up close to your subjects and keep them in focus while creating a softly blurred background effect. Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation makes it easy to capture shake-free images, even when shooting handheld and at the longer end of the zoom range, making this lens an ideal all-rounder for travel.

Versatile Zoom Range

The Sony 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS E-Mount Lens is extremely versatile, offering a wide angle and lengthy zoom range with 7.5x optical zoom, great for getting close ups at any distance. Designed for APS-C format cameras, the lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-202.5mm with a minimum focus distance of 45cm, making it great for portraits, landscape, and more.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilisation

With Sony’s Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation, the lens makes it easy to shoot handheld, even when using slower shutter speeds or zooming in close. This allows you to get creative without depending on tripods and supports, so you can capture sharp, detailed images even on the move.

Precise and Quiet Autofocus Motor

The fast, nearly silent linear autofocus motor makes the lens an excellent match when using quicker shutter speeds, offering accurate and reliable performance. A dedicated AF/MF switch lets you go from autofocus to manual mode in a snap, great when a more hands-on approach is needed.

16 Elements with Two Extra-Low Dispersion Glasses

The optical construction features 16 elements in 12 groups, with two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce the chromatic aberrations and improve clarity colour fidelity. There’s also an aspherical element that minimises distortions and spherical aberrations for better edge-to-edge sharpness.

Rounded Seven Blade Diaphragm

A 7-blade diaphragm results in a circular aperture shape that helps create an appealing, round bokeh on out of focus highlights. This also helps you get creative with your depth of field effects, allowing you to capture images with a softly blurred background while your subject remains in sharp focus.

Compact, Lightweight Design

Weighing only 0.325kg, the Sony 18-135 mm F/3.5-5.6 lens is a lightweight option that gives you the ability to shoot subjects both near and far. At only 8.8cm long, it’s compact and portable, making it a perfect addition to your kit as an all-rounder for travelling, day trips, and more.
