Product description
Announced May 18, 2009

The Sony DT 30mm F2.8 Macro SAM is an inexpensive but high-quality macro lens for Sony's APS-C format SLT cameras, offering a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:1 - or 'true' macro. As well as closeups, an effective focal length of 45mm makes this lens a handy standard prime for everyday photography. For the price, we can forgive the basic SAM focus motor, which is fast but a little noisy.
