A Versatile Standard
A top pick for users looking for a lightweight all-around zoom, the FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens from Sony is a great go-to for full-frame E-mount shooters. The lens has a compact, portable design that is ideal for everyday, walkaround use and its versatile wide-angle to portrait-length range suits working with a variety of subject types.
Optical Design
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus, Image Stabilization, and Design
  • An internal focus mechanism and linear motor contribute to faster, more responsive system and easier handling.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

Is this lens good for studio portraits?

Is this lens good for studio portraits?
Asked by: Jehzel
It's certainly sharp enough, but I find its maximum focal length a bit too short, and the f/3.5 speed delivers a depth of field that's too wide for me.

question

Does this lens have an internal zoom (lens does not extend)? Does Sony even make a full-frame, E-mount internal zoom lens? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens extends about 1 cm at 24mm compared to its length at about 47mm. At 70mm it extends again about 0.5cm when compared to its shortest length at 47mm.

The FE 28-70mm lens will be fully compatible with both the full frame and APS-C size sensor cameras. So, you could use the lens on both the NEX-6 and A6000 without issue.

Asked by: Nakib
An f/2.8 lens is almost a must for weddings. If you can at all afford it, try to stretch your budget to a 24-70mm f/2.8. Sigma makes one that is half the price of the Sony and almost just as good.

question

Hello, thanks for your previous answer about the sigma lense. I'm buying the Alpha 7s as a surprise for someone who who like to film with it, is this lens compatible with the Sony Alpha 7S? And is it a good match for the filming? And if not, could you recommand me a compatible (zoom)lense for the filming? thx
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens would be fully compatible with the a7S, and would be a good option for both photos and video.

If this lens is used on a full frame A7 camera will it still be 28mm wide at its widest setting and also be imaging the full frame of the sensor?
