DT Lens Design - A more compact llens designed specifically for use with APS-C size sensors.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
Aspherical Lens Elements - To correct visual aberrations at wide-angle setting, enabling a lightweight lens to capture more visually accurate wide-angle shots.
Wide f/2.8 aperture - The SAL1650 features a large f/2.8 aperture for fast response and superb depth-of-field.
Circular Aperture - Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
