The Sony E 16-55mm F/2.8G is a wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This bright constant-aperture zoom covers a 16mm to 55mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 24-82.5mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.
This zoom can focus down to 33cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.2X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing 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.
