Sony's E-mount lenses for demanding video creators

The way creators shoot movies has fundamentally changed. High resolution and framerates, remote setups, and handheld shooting have all made autofocus and stabilisation more important than ever. Sony listened to the voices of customers, and engineered cameras and lenses that are optimally designed in unison, for maximum performance to meet their demands. Watch the video to see the advantages of Sony genuine lenses in movie shooting.

Distinct focus controls for versatile shooting

Multiple focusing options suit any application. Tenacious autofocus keeps moving subjects pin-sharp at up to 4K 120p with a shallow depth of field. Linear Response MF offers the repeatability and precision of manual control. And the AF Assist provides the best of both worlds, allowing instant activation of manual focus to suit your creative intention, while using autofocus.

Unlike the manual zoom lenses, Sony power zoom lenses offer consistent, quiet zoom control for smooth and refined motion – even at super slow speeds. Zoom ring, lever, and remote zoom operation provide unmatched flexibility.
