Get ideal results for field work on wilderness and nature assignments with the SAL-500F80. To reduce blur, this lens takes advantage of Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system.

The world’s only super telephoto reflex lens with auto-focus capability. Its reflex design gives the amazing SAL-500F80 super telephoto lens a short barrel and compact, lightweight design, ideal for field work on wilderness and nature assignments. And its auto-focus capability makes it unique among reflex lenses of this class. Mounted to a Sony ± α DSLR with APS-C sized sensor, this lens provides a field of view equivalent to a 750mm lens on a 35mm camera. This lens also takes advantage of Sony’s in-camera Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system to reduce blur by compensating for shaky hands.

Compact Reflex Design

Focus Hold Button
For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.

No Chromatic Aberration
Reflective optics eliminate the chromatic aberrations that can affect image quality in refractive telephoto lenses, so images are extremely sharp and clear.

Auto-Focus Operation
It’s the world’s only super telephoto reflex lens with auto-focus capability, making it ideal for wildlife assignments where events happen fast and you must react quickly to catch the shot.

Shutter-speed Exposure Control
At fixed f/8 aperture, the exposure is controlled by varying the camera shutter speed and using a neutral-density snap-on filter.
