The lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom. i.ZOOM achieves 32x zoom with 4K resolution, and 48x zoom with FHD.


High-Precision AF

5-axis HYBRID Image Stabilisation

n addition to the Optical Image Stabilisation in the lens, Electronic Image Stabilisation detects and corrects camera shake. The lens O.I.S. System incorporates balls to drive the motor, which reduces friction and improves the correction of blurring caused through natural hand held camera shake.
