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.
With the Sony 55-300mm DT f/4.5-5.6 SAM Zoom Lens from flattering portraits to wildlife and extreme sports: every subject’s covered with the new SAL55300 telephoto zoom lens from Sony. Optimized for all "Alpha" A-mount camera models with APS-C sensors, the compact, stylishly designed interchangeable lens brings the action closer at a compelling price for every photographer.
A versatile 5.5x magnification range covers focal lengths from 55mm to 300mm. At maximum zoom, this represents 450mm super-telephoto (as 35mm equivalent): plenty of power to capture the grace of animals in the wild or nail-biting track-side action.
The whisper-quiet Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) makes an ideal partner for the high-speed AF tracking capabilities of cameras with Translucent Mirror Technology. Even when your subject’s moving swiftly, you’ll be rewarded by frame after frame of crisply-focused images and Full HD video.
The advanced optical design of the SAL55300 gets the best from the high pixel counts of today’s high-resolution image sensors. Featured on premium Sony G Lens models, an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass element reduces color aberrations for improved image quality at medium to long focal lengths. An impressive MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) performance assures flawless resolution of the finest details.
