- Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens
The Sony E-Mount Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens is an APS-C format lens with a 35mm field of view equivalent of 24-105mm. It also performs well under low-light settings due to its f/4 fixed maximum aperture. Constructed with 16 lens elements in 12 groups, it features four aspherical lens elements and a Super Extra Low Dispersion Glass that help reduce spherical and chromatic aberration. Meanwhile, you can take advantage of the 0.23x maximum magnification ratio and 0.35m minimum focusing distance to zoom in closer to the subject. The Sony 16-70mm is also equipped with Carl Zeiss T* Anti-Reflective Coating to do away with unwanted light and Optical Steadyshot Image Stabilization to negate potential image blur due to camera shake. Amazing bokeh effects can also be achieved through the seven-blade circular diaphragm. Compatible with Sony E-Mount Cameras, the Sony E-Mount Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens has a 55mm filter diameter.
Product Features in Detail
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 16 mm to 70 mm 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, you can concentrate 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 color 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 color and contrast, which give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
