Lens Description

The Sony Alpha DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6 SAM is a short telephoto to super telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 55mm to 300mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 82.5-450mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This zoom can focus down to 140cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.27X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Sony to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Sony A. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Sony A mount cameras with APS-C (1.5X) sensors.
