[google translated] A mirrorless ultra-telephoto zoom lens with an amazingly compact design

The 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057) is an extremely compact and high-quality Sony E-mount and Fujifilm X-mount that overturns the conventional ultra-telephoto zoom common sense. It’s Inns. Covers focal length 150-500mm (equivalent to 35mm equivalent to 225-750mm)*1. You can easily perform ultra-telephoto shooting by miniaturizing while achieving the telephoto end of 500mm. We are also particular about image quality, and special glass materials such as composite aspherical lenses thoroughly suppress the occurrence of various aberrations. It is also equipped with a high-speed and high-precision linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) and image stabilization mechanism VC (Vibration Compensation). You won’t miss any moment. In addition, in addition to achieving a shortest shooting distance of 0.6m at the wide angle end, we have also improved usability by adopting a tripod seat with a strap hole, a simple splash-proof structure that supports outdoor shooting, and a antifouling coat. From landscapes to sports and wild animals, you can freely aim for the one you want to take. Please enjoy the powerful world of super telephoto.

Focal length when using a camera with a 35mm full-size sensor: 150-500mm
Focal length when using a camera with APS-C sensor: 35mm equivalent to 225-750mm equivalent
