Product description
Announced May 11, 2010

The Sony E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS is a low-cost standard zoom for Sony's APS-C format NEX interchangeable lens cameras, covering an effective focal length range of 27-52mm. Although it isn't the best lens in Sony's E-mount lineup (newer bodies like the NEX-6 and NEX-7 really show up its weaknesses), this is a useful 'first lens' for photographers entering the NEX system from the bottom.
