The SELP18110G zoom lens covers the most frequently used range for Super 35 mm/APS-C movies with a constant F4 maximum aperture. G Lens optical performance delivers image quality that is suitable for 4K production throughout, right out to the image periphery. Sony SMO design minimizes image shift due to lens operation, while high-level zoom control and refined focus add to professional overall performance.
For professional Super 35 mm/APS-C production This powered zoom lens delivers optimum performance in Super 35 mm/APS-C moviemaking applications, starting at 18 mm wide-angle and extending through an impressive 6.1x zoom range with a constant F4 maximum aperture. G Lens optical performance delivers image quality that is suitable for 4K throughout the zoom range, right out to the image periphery.
Smooth Motion Optics meet pro cinema needs Sony's original SMO (Smooth Motion Optics) design and construction minimizes optical shifts that can have a negative impact on movie quality. Focus breathing is minimized by an internal focus mechanism, focus shift is eliminated by precise focus tracking adjustment, and axial shift is minimized by a constant-length design.
High-level, versatile zoom control In addition to smooth powered zoom, mechanical manual zoom ensures control with no lag. The desired angle of view can be accurately reached without overshoot or undershoot. Zoom ring direction can be easily switched as required, smooth, slow powered zoom is supported, and an inner zoom mechanism means that the length of the lens remains constant.
Refined focus operation and features The focus ring slides to switch between auto and manual focus, so the switchover can be made with no break or change in shooting posture. A 0.8 mm pitch focus gear is built right into the lens, providing direct compatibility with standard focusing accessories.
Ideal size and weight for active shooting Compact, lightweight design contributes to the kind of mobility that active movie shooting demands. Small size and low weight can be advantageous when using gimbals and other types of support, too.
Optical SteadyShot Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to keep captured images stable and blur-free in a wide range of shooting conditions. It can be a huge advantage when shooting in low light, minimizing the need to boost ISO and possibly introduce noise, as well as when moving around with the camera.
Teleconverter support This lens is fully compatible with the Sony SEL14TC 1.4x teleconverter and SEL20TC 2x teleconverter, providing extended reach while maintaining outstanding image quality and autofocus performance.
Reliable in challenging conditions A sealed dust and moisture-resistant3 design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
Lens Configuration The impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist’s vision.
