Four versatile lens options to unleash your creativity
Expand your creative possibilities with four versatile lenses in a triple camera and fast, accurate AF across all cameras. Thanks to Dual PDAF sensors, Continuous AF keeps focus on moving subjects, while Sony's unique telephoto system supports fast AF even at extended focal lengths.

An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm with fast AF lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. Crucially, the two focal lengths are included in one telephoto module, complete with Dual PDAF sensors. So when you switch between 70mm and 105mm, the focal lens unit and the AF lens unit work in unison to focus fast.
