Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens
Ultimate Wide-Angle Versatility
Offering G Master performance in a compact, fast, and versatile form, the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM is a wide-angle zoom covering ultra-wide to standard wide-angle fields of view. Ideal for a range of subjects, from landscape to lifestyle to architecture, the lens's advanced optics and bright f/2.8 design pair with a flexible zoom design to suit working in a variety of shooting conditions.
G Master Design
  • 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.
  • Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field.
  • Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing shallow depth of field techniques.
  • Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements and three standard aspherical elements are incorporated into the optical design, which features superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, distortion and other spherical aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Two ED elements are featured in the lens design and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Practical and Intuitive Handling
  • Two Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) autofocus groups offer quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance that is ideal for both stills and video applications.
  • Floating focusing system divides the focus group into two separately controlled groups and helps to maintain consistently clear optical performance throughout the zoom and focus ranges.
  • Dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch for direct tactile control over focus settings.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Front element features a fluorine coating to guard against fingerprints and dust from adhering to it.
Chiaro Pro 82mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 82mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Sensei Cap Keeper Plus Lens Cap Holder

The Cap Keeper Plus Lens Cap Holder from Sensei prevents the loss of lens caps. An adhesive-backed disc secures the lens cap to the elastic leash which wraps around the lens barrel. With the lens cap removed from the lens while shooting, it hangs out of the way but secure and within reach for easy retrieval. The Cap Keeper Plus is made with tough and extremely secure elastic.

Perfection - so versatile

By Scott

Must have lens - versatile and powerful. Great for low light and bright situations. Very sharp focus and narrow depth of field make for beautiful composition both at close range and at a distance. Very fast and reliable autofocus. Love the ability to get really close to objects too and have the autofocus kick in. Focus hold button is perfectly placed. It took some time to convince myself to pull the trigger because of the price but I am glad I final bit the bullet.

Must have lens for A7IV

This lens is versatile, fast, and sharp. Great for working around the A7IV's 4K60 Super35 video crop. It's a great lens for landscape, videography, vlogging, astro, and just about anything else.

Must have lens with the A7IV

This lens is incredibly versatile, fast, and sharp. It is especially helpful with the A7IV for video, to work around the 4K60 super35 crop. It's great for video, landscape, astro, vlogging, and pretty much everything else.

Great lens for landscapes and real estate!!

By Curtis

Takes excellent photos with minimal distortion at wider angles. Photo quality drops off slightly at 35mm. If you partner this with the Tamron 35-150 2-2.8, you've got the perfect versatile two lens solution for Alpha (if you need to shoot 35, just use the Tamron). Extremely high quality lens that is great for landscapes and real estate!!

Versatile and Capable

I'm a landscape photographer who believes that less is more. Trudging around with photo gear on your back can get very tiring. I only wanted 3 total lenses to pursue my hobby. If you only take 3, they need to be hand picked. I use this lens more than the other 2 combined. It offers beautiful bokeh, great sun flares and will even do amazing Astros if opened to f2.8. I absolutely love this lens.

Can't beat Sony OEM lenses! This one is fantastic!
