Product Details

Sony SAL-1118 DT 11-18mm f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens, Model SAL1118

Extra-wide shots are yours with this Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 A-mount lens. It's designed to fit on compatible A-mount cameras, or you can use an adapter to fit it to your E-mount camera to enjoy impressive wide-angle videos and stills from a compact lens. It's ideal for expansive vistas as well as detailed room shots that capture every face and personality within. Markets, historical ruins and city scenes are all fair game with this Sony wide-angle lens.

The circular aperture of this Sony zoom lens lets you capture crisp foregrounds while defocusing the background into smooth, creamy bokeh that produces circular highlights instead of the traditional polygons. As a result, it produces a more pleasing image. Then, extra-low dispersion glass and aspherical lens elements along with lens coatings deliver maximum quality from your photos by reducing chromatic and spherical aberrations as well as flare and ghosting, producing a better, more consistent still. The integrated distance encoder helps to meter the flash so that you get great results every time when using this Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 A-mount lens.

Features:

  • Internal Focusing System
    Lens elements at the rear of the optical system move, allowing rapid auto-focus response
  • Aspherical Lens Elements
    Aspherical elements correct frame distortion to provide more visually accurate super-wide-angle shots
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
    ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you photos with sharper focus and more accurate color separation
  • Circular Aperture
    In low-light shots or nightscapes, out-of-focus light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect

Great wide Angle for crop sensor

By

Comments about Sony SAL-1118 DT 11-18mm f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens:

One of the better wide angle lenses, I've tried other brands but sure don't come close to the quality this lens has to offer. Like every other wide angle lens it's a bit soft on the edges but still a great lens. Only if it was a faster lens! www.clintmorrisphoto.com

wide-angle lens

Comments about Sony SAL-1118 DT 11-18mm f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens:

Couldn't be happier! I was looking at wide angle lenses and got stuck between 2 sony lenses (one of which was a carl zeiss. Im too lazy to look them up :P). So I went to my dealer who only had this lens in the wide- angle section, and i'm glad i chose it. It had a discount so i can't argue over the price. Quality is pretty good, with almost no noticable barrel distortion from what i've seen, and I also haven't seen any chromatic abberation or what so ever yet. I highly recommend this lens to anyone who needs some extra stuff from up close or just for daily use.

Great Lens for Many Uses

By 

from Chattanooga, TN

Comments about Sony SAL-1118 DT 11-18mm f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens:

I use this lens a lot, mostly for real estate/home interior shots. I purchased it specifically to get some great shots of a home theater that we submitted for an award, and have used it in nearly every home installation that we have done since. It has great color, and you never run out space to fit an entire room into a shot. I have dabbled a bit with portraits with this lens as well, and landscapes are great, but you have to be careful of the distortion that can occur with the wide angle.

Comments about Sony SAL-1118 DT 11-18mm f/5.5-5.6 Super Wide Zoom Lens:

Using this lens with the alpha55 I was able to capture high quality images under both interior and exterior lighting conditions, Unlike the earlier reviewer, I did not experience any edge-related chromatic abberations. Most recommended.
