* With interchangeable-lens digital cameras incorporating APS-C type image sensors.
When mounted on α series cameras with APS-C type sensors, the actual angle of view will be equal to the angle obtained at a focal length approx. 1.5 times longer than stated.
Less light is transmitted by any lens at the image periphery. If the light falloff becomes excessive, reduce the aperture by 1 or 2 stops.
