E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
Compact 3x zoom with image stabilisation
E 18–55mm F3.5–5.6 OSS Zoom (SEL1855)
The SEL1855 offers comfortable framing and capture of landscapes, snapshots, portraits and more. Built-in image stabilisation enables handheld shooting in low light.
Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.
Capture smooth, blur-free images
Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
Refined optical performance
To optimise performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimise distortion and flatness of the image plane.
Fast, agile focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
