With so much creative capability at hand to shoot for fun, you'll capture more star quality in every image.

The Elements of Comprehensive Image Quality

The synergy of a higher-performance CMOS image sensor, lightning-quick image processor and legendary lens pack the latest optical and engineering advancements into an amazingly compact form.

 

Go farther, closer and wider

The Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® T* 30x optical zoom lens extends a legacy of high-precision optics to capture clear, sharp, undegraded images throughout a 24–720 mm range.

 

Renowned ZEISS optics

Legendary ZEISS quality delivers brilliant sharpness, rich contrast and minimal distortion.

Exmor R™ CMOS sensor

A back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels takes in more light for greater detail in every shot.

BIONZ X image processing engine

Now reproducing more realistic detail and colour in images with less diffraction and noise.

 

Extra-speedy & precise Fast Intelligent AF

An improved spatial object detection algorithm realises a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease.

 

Movies in versatile formats

Record in XAVC S or AVCHD high-resolution movie format and as MP4 file.

Keep the blurs away

Intelligent Active Mode w. 5-axis image stabilisation + frame analysis.

Long may you run

Hold your power — live long, work hard, stay strong
