Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The SAL-24F20Z Zoom Lens offers superior zooming performance and boasts a compact, lightweight design. The fast and silent auto focus, minimal spherical distortion and color aberration and Carl Zeiss T coated optics make this one a great choice for beautiful close-ups.
Compact Design, All-Around Versatility - This superb 24-70mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of photo applications -- a lens you can put on and leave on, providing large-aperture brightness that's easy to carry (35mm equivalent: 36-105mm).
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) - Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements - These precision lens elements correct distortion for sharper, more visually accurate images across the entire zoom range of the lens.
Superior Large-Aperture Performance - Like other large-aperture Carl Zeiss lens designs, this f2.8 24-70mm zoom lens is simply magnificent in its ability to capture brilliant high-resolution images in low-light conditions requiring fully open aperture.
Carl Zeiss T Coating - Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss -- and this superb lens features T (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used in Carl Zeiss lenses to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
In-Camera Image Stabilization - A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony &945 system DSLR -- and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.
Multi-Element Design - The SAL-2470Z is designed with 17 lens elements in 13 groups, including 2 aspherical elements and 2 ED glass elements. Floating motion between the third and fourth groups of lens elements helps compensate for any aberrations caused by the zooming action of the lens.
