Sony SAL18135 Specification Guide (en)

Silent, high-speed AF drive via SAM
The Auto Focus drive in the SAL is smooth and quiet thanks to its SAM (Smooth Autofocus 
Motor), which also helps improves AF response when shooting moving subjects.  Reductions in 
drive noise also make the SAL-18135 quieter than other entry-level model lenses in the line-up.
