And Sony Announces 18-135mm IS Lens at $600

Sony 18-135mm lens

One of the best thing I have noticed today is the announcement of Sony E-mount 18-135mm lens. This lens is so important that Canon and Nikon DSLRs offer this lens as a kit lens with APS-C sensor based DSLRs after 18-55mm lens. The lens covers a perfect range that eliminates the need of zoom and standard lens alone and perfect companion for travel photographers.

This new APS-C lens features a versatile 18-135mm focal length, aperture range of F3.5-F5.6 and Optical SteadyShot™ stabilization. The lens is an ideal fit for Sony’s popular APS-C sensor cameras including α6500, α6300 and α6000, and is an extremely useful tool for a wide range of shooting situations ranging from daily life to portraiture, landscape, nature and travel photography.

Additionally, the 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens offers fast, precise, quiet AF performance thanks to a linear motor, making it a perfect complement to the high-speed shooting and impressive video capabilities of many of Sony’s mirrorless cameras.

So, in near future the upcoming we do hope that next Sony announcement (possibly Sony A6700 or Sony A7000) will carry 18-135mm lens as a kit lens option.

Request to Sony, I am not talking about FF / F-mount users here. But for APS-C / E-mount users they should announce something affordable then current DSLR makers offering.
