BEST CSC*1 ENTRY LEVEL LENS Award: Reason for winning TIPA award (from original statement)

Designed exclusively for the E-mount Sony CSC camera line-up (it can also be used on the Sony NEX-VG10 HD video camcorder), this light and compact lens delivers the (35mm format) equivalent of 27-300mm yet weighs a mere 16.2 oz. At the telephoto end the lens can focus as close as 19.6 inches; to aid in close-up and long-range telephoto shooting it incorporates a specifically designed moving coil Vibration Compensation feature. The AF drive has a stepping motor that is optimized for use with Sony's contrast-detection AF system.
