A new generation of α NEX and A-Mount lens are getting ready to hit the market and we are giving you, our loyal Sony readers, the latest details here.  Included in the the new batch of lenses are three different models, all offering high-quality zoom along with a stylish compact design – providing the perfect opportunity to elevate your Sony photography experience.


We’ve got the full breakdown of these brand new models here:

SAL55300: High-quality Telephoto Zoom Lens for the Alpha A-Mount camera line (announced this week to hit stores in September):

 From flattering portraits to faraway wildlife and fast-action sports, nearly every subject can be captured beautifully with the new SAL55300 telephoto zoom lens, the latest addition to Sony’s A-mount lens lineup.

Optimized for use with α A-mount camera models with APS-C sensors, the compact, stylishly-designed interchangeable lens is an ideal addition to the camera bag for any Sony photographer.

The new SAL55300 lens features a whisper-quiet Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) and an advanced optical design to get the best from the high-speed performance and high resolution sensors common to Sony’s A-mount camera lineup.  Additionally, it contains an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass element, commonly featured on premium Sony G Lens models, that reduces color aberrations, improves image quality and provides excellent contrast and corner-to-corner sharpness.

SEL18200LE: Lightweight  18-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens for Sony α NEX:

An ideal travel partner for all  NEX cameras, the new SEL18200LE E18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS LE telezoom lens offers a powerful 11x zoom range and superb resolution in an easy-to-carry package.

Smaller and 12% lighter than the older SEL18200 lens, the new E-mount model features Optical SteadyShot to compensate for the occasional shaky hand.  It also features Direct Manual Focus to give users precise control over focus settings, resulting in crisp, beautiful images.

SAL18135: A-Mount 18-135mm Telephoto Zoom Lens:

A versatile match for all Sony A-mount camera bodies, the new SAL18135 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 telephoto zoom offers a generous 8x (approx.) zoom range in a compact, go-anywhere lens that’s great for travel, street photography and everyday shooting.  The lens features a SAM design that assures smooth, rapid, whisper-quiet autofocus operation and Direct Manual Focus for accurate fine-tuning of focus.  This sharp telephoto zoom lens will also be offered as a stand-alone lens as well as in a kit package with Sony’s entire new line of A-mount, DSLR-style cameras (α37, α57, α65 and α77).
