Impressive zoom range and performance

The E PZ 18-105 mm f/4 G OSS Standard Zoom Lens uses Sony Handycam technology to ensure smooth and quiet zooming, ideal for both moviemaking and still photography. With the length of the lens remaining constant while zooming or focusing, you can capture professional-quality movies with ease.

You can stay in control at all times with a variable zoom speed control. Use the zoom lever on the lens barrel or the zoom ring to zoom smoothly while maintaining a secure grip on your camera.

Superb rendering

Featuring two Extra-low Dispersion glass elements and three aspherical elements, the SELP18105G offers stunning image quality throughout the zoom range.

Supporting natural, true-to-life rendering, the lens helps you to capture those intricate details that can make all the difference to your photography.

A constant f/4 aperture across the entire zoom range removes the hassle of changing exposure settings, allowing you to focus on getting the perfect shot.

Smooth background bokeh

With its seven blade circular aperture design, the SELP-18105G offers enhanced smoothness to create beautiful background bokeh. Ideal for portrait photography, this defocuses the background to make the subject stand out.

Built-in Optical SteadyShot

The E PZ 18-105 mm has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation to compensate for camera shake. As a result, you can shoot sharp and clear scenes with confidence when capturing handheld footage.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 4-5 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).

Returns and refunds

Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

Items you haven’t opened
Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

Items you’ve opened
Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

  • Let us know you plan to return the item within 14 days of delivery/collection
  • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

Order online and collect in store

Order & Collect ­­– The majority of our stores are now open and offering a collection service, allowing you to safely order online and collect from store contact-free.

Our stores with parking available can offer a Drive Thru collection experience using the parking bays clearly marked outside the store. Here’s how it works;

  • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, drive to the store.
  • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
  • One of our colleagues will put your order in your car boot.

Stores, including those which DO NOT have parking outside, can still offer a safe Walk Up service. We have safety measures in place to keep you and our staff protected whilst you queue. Here’s how it works;

  • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, walk to store and head to the collection point.
  • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
  • You’ll get a text when our colleague is preparing your order for collection.
  • Please remember to keep 2 metres away from our colleagues and other customers.

If the store already has stock of your item, you may be able to collect on the same day. If your store doesn’t have stock, we can get some in, but it may take a little longer. Don’t forget to wait for your ready to collect email and check store opening hours and whether the store can offer Drive Thru, Walk Up or both collection options before heading out.

We strongly recommend that you check whether you will be able to carry the item, or whether it will fit in your vehicle before placing your order.
