Sony SAL-100M28 - 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black, Model SAL100M28
Up the magnification with this Sony 100mm f/2.8 A-mount macro lens. It's designed to focus in on extremely small objects thanks to the impressive focusing mechanism, which allows you to get closer to the world beneath your feet, letting you capture extraordinary details. See the tip of an ant's head clearly as it scurries about its business, marvel at the intricate structures on top of flowers, and record everything clearly. It also doubles up as a prime telephoto lens so that you can take images of wildlife, and when you need a bit more reach, it can work as a portrait lens.
All of this is achieved by the precision-engineered lens elements in this Sony macro lens that ensure light reaches the sensor with virtually no ghosting, flare or chromatic effects, producing pristine photos shot after shot. In addition, the circular aperture produces circular highlights when fully open, creating extremely smooth backgrounds. Because this Sony 100mm f/2.8 A-mount macro lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.8, it produces shallow depths of field when you need them.
