Manufacturer description: The world's only super telephoto reflex lens with auto-focus capability.

And its auto-focus capability makes it unique among reflex lenses of this class. Mounted to a Sony ? ? DSLR with APS-C sized sensor, this lens provides a field of view equivalent to a 750mm lens on a 35mm camera. This lens also takes advantage of Sony's in-camera Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system to reduce blur by compensating for shaky hands.
