Sony 16-70mm F/4.0 Overview
Covering both wide landscapes and tight portraits, the Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens fromSony is a great all-around choice for APS-C-format E-mount cameras. It offers a very versatile 24-105mm equivalent zoom range and even features a constant f/4 aperture for consistent performance. Also, through the use of one extra-low dispersion element, one Advanced Aspherical, and three aspherical elements, users will enjoy sharp, aberration-free imagery. Furthermore, the lens benefits from Zeiss' T* anti-reflective coating to effectively eliminate ghosting and flare.For fast, silent autofocus, the 16-70mm is equipped with a linear motor and uses an internal focus design. It also has Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths. Additionally, the lens can focus as close as 13.8" and it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.
ZEISS quality in a compact, versatile zoom
Here’s class-leading ZEISS optics with the legendary T* coating in a mid-range zoom that is compact and convenient for a wide range of subjects. The 16mm to 70mm zoom range will cover most shooting situations, making this lens an ideal choice for day-to-day photography or moviemaking.
Refined optics deliver stunning images
Four aspherical elements, including one AA element, combine with one ED glass element for breathtaking rendering. A linear motor achieves smooth, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills. The T* coating enhances performance even further by effectively suppressing reflections so that crisp, natural contrast is maintained.
Constant exposure at any zoom setting
A constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range means consistent exposure settings at any focal length as well as improved low-light capability. There’s no need to worry about aperture related exposure variations as you zoom, concentrating on the image rather than technical details.
Always sharp and clear
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld. Sharp, clear night scenes or indoor shots in dim lighting can be captured without the need to boost ISO sensitivity and risk increased noise.
Outstanding colour and contrast
The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
The lens boasts a linear motor-driven internal focusing mechanism that provides smooth, quiet zooming, so you’ll be able to get close to your subjects without disturbing them. Coupled with the response AF, this lens is perfect for shooting movies as well as stills.
