Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Full-Frame E-mount Telephoto Zoom Lens

A full-frame 24-240mm zoom range allows this one lens to cover an extensive variety of shooting situations with 10x effective zoom range, making it ideal for landscape, snapshots, portraits and travel where reducing luggage is a priority. The ability to switch from wide angle to telephoto without having to change lenses also means that more of those fleeting moments that make great shots will be captured. The advanced optics includes five aspherical elements and one ED glass element, achieving high-quality performance in a compact overall design. An advanced linear motor drives the focusing mechanism for quick, smooth response throughout the extended zoom range. Handheld telephoto shots and low-light photography are facilitated by built-in Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization. Like all other FE lenses, this lens is dust and moisture resistant.

Lens-Based Optical Image Stabilization

Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur. The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high-end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high-quality movies as well as stills.

Aspherical Lens Elements

Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane. This is caused by differences in refraction at different points on conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped aspherical elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements can reduce the total number of elements required in the lens, thus reducing overall size and weight.

Internal Focusing

Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter.

10x Zoom

24-240 mm covers a broad variety of photographic needs. It is a one-lens solution that can reduce baggage when traveling and maximize efficiency at busy events. Move close to the subject and use the telephoto end of the range to create impressive perspective, with smooth bokeh effects for subjects like flowers as well as general photography.

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This bokeh effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. Alpha lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Full-frame E-mount Telephoto Zoom Lens

Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Full-Frame E-mount Telephoto Zoom Lens SKU: SEL24240

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to lens. Lite to carry easy for close ups. I bought this lens about 5 years ago. Used for lot of my bird shoots but now I have 300mm to 600mm but it weights 7 pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Travel lens I bought this to have flexibility on travel with just 1 lens. On the whole it is an ok lens. My biggest difficulty is the minimum focusing distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My default "go to" lense Love the 24 to 240 range, its the lense I use most all the time. Makes taking pictures in any situation, (close up or far away) easy with out needing to swap lenses or carry and extra body and lense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job Good coverage not to heavy good overall lens good for landscape

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyday all-around lens. I have purchased 3 of these lenses. I use them for two-camera shoots as well as for everyday good-to-go lenses. A bit less sharp on the edges, but coupled with the a1, well it does what I would expect and I am very satisfied. Not a G-lens, but good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lens! My last zoom lens was a DT 18-250 mm standard zoom, and when fully extended would have some light flare and poor resolution. I have found this FE 24-240 full frame lens to have better clarity at full extension making for better enlargements. It weigh-in 7 oz more and worth the weight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too soft Sorry, I actually returned this lens, unless I used F.8, 11+. It was just too soft for my taste

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide range Having one lens cover such a distance eliminates changing lenses in the field.
