DT 11–18mm F4.5–5.6 Wide Zoom (SAL1118)

The SAL1118 fits squarely in the "wide zoom" category, offering focal lengths that are indispensable for landscape, indoor, and architectural photography.

APS-C A-mount

Compatible with 35mm Full Frame , or APS-C format A-mount cameras.

Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony with SteadyShot™ INSIDE and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld, even zoomed-in.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh
Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Refined optical performance

Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.

Precise, agile focusing

An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn't move, enabling a more compact design and reduced minimum focusing distances.
