Sony Announces E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens and Silver a6300 Mirrorless Camera; More Info at B&H
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – January 05, 2018) – B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens, along with the new silver version of the Alpha a6300 mirrorless digital camera. Both products help expand Sony’s E-mount APS-C-format system: the lens fills a gap in its standard zoom lens lineup while the silver camera complements the existing black version, for a choice in finishes.

- 27-202.5mm (35mm Equivalent)

The E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is a 27-202.5mm full-frame equivalent zoom, and an ideal all-around lens for a5000 and a6000-series shooters. Spanning a wide-angle to telephoto range, this versatile zoom is well suited to working in a wide variety of environments, and its lightweight design benefits all-day use. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is featured, which compensates for camera shake to help produce sharper imagery when shooting handheld. A linear AF motor also contributes to sharp imagery with its quick and accurate performance, and is designed for quiet operation to benefit video recording. Complementing the handling is a smart optical design, which makes use of an aspherical element to limit spherical aberrations and distortion along with two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range.
