Sony E-mount interchangeable lens camera users can experience the legendary Carl Zeiss optical excellence in a beautifully compact, easy to carry zoom. A practical 4x zoom range (24-105mm in 35mm full-frame equivalent) makes the SEL 16-70mm ideal for a wide range of everyday photo situations, from landscapes and portraits to informal snapshots
Outstanding contrast and resolution at all settings are hallmarks of this premium go-anywhere lens. An advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) element and three normal aspherical elements reduce lens size and weight without sacrificing image quality. The renowned T* coating, unique to Carl Zeiss, reduces glare and ghosting for natural colour reproduction plus superb definition and clarity.
Unlike budget zooms that stop down at longer focal lengths, maximum aperture remains a constant F4 at all focal lengths. This reduces the need for high ISO settings when zoomed in, and provides consistent exposure performance throughout the zoom range. As an extra refinement, the circular aperture can achieve beautifully smooth, natural background defocus (bokeh) effects.
Sony’s Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation system counters the effects of hand shake for sharper images – even at slow shutter speeds or in low light. Exemplary optical performance is matched by the premium construction you’d expect from Carl Zeiss, with an elegantly finished metal exterior and a distinctively luxurious feel.
