Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A fast and flexible wide-angle zoom, the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens from Sony is a wide-angle zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. Distinguished by its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, this lens offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and benefits working in low-light conditions. The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations along with two XA elements and three aspherical elements, which significantly controls spherical aberrations for a high degree of image sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Nano AR coating has been applied to limit ghosting and lens flare for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the optical assets, this lens is also notable for its inclusion of an 11-blade circular diaphragm to produce smooth, soft-edged bokeh with selective focus imagery. For controlling focus, two Direct Drive SSM AF groups are employed that are quick and quiet, and also lend more responsive control for manual focus operation. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to support shooting in inclement conditions and a dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch.

As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations. Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications.
Wide-angle zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, this lens is also compatible with APS-C models where it provides a 24-52.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range for working in difficult lighting conditions.
Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements and three aspherical elements are incorporated into the optical design, which feature superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other spherical aberrations.
Two extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the lens design and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
Two Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) autofocus groups offer quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance that is ideal for both stills and video applications.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures. Additionally, the front element has a fluorine coating to guard against fingerprints and dust from adhering to it.
Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 reviews

FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Modern Technological Marvel I'm a fine art outdoor photographer, and have used many different lenses over the past 50+ years. This is one lens that lives up to the hype. It's almost as sharp as the best Zeiss wide angle prime, and at every focal length from 16mm to 35mm. Like all 35mm format lenses, sharpness tails off after f11.0 due to diffraction. But the consistently outstanding clarity and sharpness throughout this zooms' range make this a lens that can match the capabilities of the Sony A7riii camera. And I'm enjoying both immensely. Sony has pulled off a major balancing act with this gem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharper than my 24-70 GM Just picked up this lens. Did my standard check of it on the brick wall of my house at various focal lengths and apertures mounted on my a7r2 on my rrs tripod. Then swapped in my 24-70 2.8 GM to take the same shots in the 24-35mm range without moving the camera and tripod. Brought the images up in Lightroom in compare mode. This lens is so sharp in the corners that it outperforms the 24-70 GM at 24mm and 35mm. (The 24-70 is extremely sharp and I highly recommend it as well.) Corners are sharp even wide open at 2.8. Nice to know I can take my 16-35 GM out for landscape shooting with the knowledge it will be incredible from 16 through 35. That will cover most of my shots allowing me to travel lighter. This is a fantastic lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I've had the lens for a few weeks now. Been running it through its paces. Shot a few events (with very difficult lighting) and some landscape. The lens performed perfectly. Just one advise, if you're going to put a UV filter on this, make sure to buy top quality. I bought a medium grade Hoya for it, that cost me over $100, and I find that with the filter on, I get WAY more flares when shooting sunrise and sunsets. Without the filter, I don't see any, even when I try to make it happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth its Weight I had this lens for about 6 months now. Initially it feel very heavy when fitted with my Sony a7ii. I tested it in taking city-scapes and am pleased with the result, especially on its sharpness all the way to the edge. Recently I lugged it with me on a long hiking trips. l took lots of panoramic photos on mountain massif, down wide and low on rocks and rivers, wide open night sky and even snap shots of people (on 35mm). When those photos were loaded up in Lightroom and PS, they were exceptionally pleasing. Thinking back, the speed and sharpness of this lens is worth lugging around. I usually don't get second chance to do such trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Cow I Shoot with the A7Rll the Image quality is absolutely amazing never expected a wide angle zoom to be this good. I also have the 24-70F2.8GM but this lens blew me away if you don't already own it you should it's that good. Here are some sample photos to demonstrate the amount of cropping you're able to do. shot at 35mm F2.8 1/60 ISO400

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats F4 Sony 16-35 I recently purchased the G-series 16-35 to replace my F4 16-35 and I couldn't be happier. Combined with my a7riii, the lens has been able to do portraits as well as group shots when indoors. My old Sony F4 was great for landscapes and group photos, but if I wanted to take a picture of an individual, it couldnt give the moment that professional grade image like the G-series can. All around better piece of glass with sharper spots in the middle as well as the outer frame. Aside from the size and price, it's a must have for your toolbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most amazing lens I took the Sony 16-35 f/2.8, 24-70 f/2.8, and the 70-200 f/2.8 to Hawaii in August (all rented) and almost never took the 16-35 off my a9. For what I do, adventure/travel with my family, it was incredible: fast focus, ultra sharp edge to edge, kept up with he a9’s tremendous focusing speed and accuracy. So I bought one. Best lens I’ve owned yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality lens from �Sony I was reluctant to spend the money on this wide zoom for my A7Rii, but have no regrets now. � It is expensive, but if you need a high quality wide zoom to take advantage of the A7Rii resolution, this is a great lens. �I also own the 24-70 f2.8 GM and I honestly think this 16-35 is even sharper than the 24. �Great lens.
