Sony DT 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 SAM II

Sony DT 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 SAM IIManufacturer's Description: "Boasting second-generation styling, this new lens succeeds the popular DT 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 SAM that was introduced in 2011. The light, compact 3x zoom lens covers a frequently used range of focal lengths, from wide-angle 18mm to standard 55mm (35mm camera equivalent range: 27-82.5mm).
While retaining the same smooth AF motor (SAM) as its predecessor, newly-designed rear lens elements suppress flare and ghosting, while mechanical elements have been upgraded for a more positive, comfortable operation."
