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.
Significantly smaller and lighter than comparable lenses, the Sony SEL18200LE high magnification zoom lens is perfect for a wide range of shooting situations. With a compact size achieved in part by downsizing the autofocus motor and optical image stabilization unit, this lens offers a powerful mix of versatility and image quality perfect for shooting scenarios where a light, compact camera and lens combination is optimal.
The broad focal length coverage of the lens—from 18mm wide angle to 200mm telephoto (27mm to 300mm in 35mm equivalence)—makes it an ideal high-magnification "travel" lens for a wide range of shots. Capture expansive landscapes, charming portraits with pleasantly blurred backgrounds, even sports and nature shots. Optical SteadyShot (OSS) technology cuts down on blur caused by camera shake and reduces reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in dark environments.
18-200mm Long 11x Zoom
The broad focal length coverage of the lens, from 18mm to 200mm, makes it an ideal high-magnification "travel" lens for a wide range of photography. With the 35mm equivalent of a 27-300mm lens, users can easily capture wide open landscapes, portraits with softly blurred backgrounds, and more. The telephoto capability of the lens makes it a good option for sports and nature photography as well
High imaging performance
With two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and four aspherical elements, the lens employs the same popular, circular aperture found in many A-lenses, enabling backgrounds to have beautifully round, defocused bokeh effects
Optical SteadyShot Stabilization
Equipped with Sony's Optical SteadyShot (OSS), the lens itself compensates for blur caused by camera shake no matter what camera it is attached to. In addition to reducing blur for normal handheld photography, Optical SteadyShot also reduces reliance on high ISO settings when shooting in dark environments
This lens is compatible with all Sony Alpha NEX cameras and NEX Handycam camcorders
