Lens Description

The Sony E Vario-Tessar T* 16-70mm F/4 ZA OSS is a wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This constant-aperture zoom covers a 16mm to 70mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 24-105mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. An optical Image Stabilization System built into this lens compensates for camera shake.

This zoom can focus down to 35cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.23X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Sony to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Sony E. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Sony E mount cameras with APS-C (1.5X) sensors.
