FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens with Accessories Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's
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 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.

Amazing lens

This is an amazing lens. Great for Milky Way and light painting. Notice when light painting this lens creates beautiful star bursts! If you shoot in low light you need to add this lens to your bag.

I was hesitated to get the lens at first. However, I'm now ending up using this lens so frequently. It's good for landscape, or event fashion shoot when you want to create a creative point of view

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!

What an incredible lens this is - perfect for shooting landscape & real estate! This lens hardly ever came off my camera at one time. It was my favorite landscape lens for quite a while. It's so versatile in the field with such a perfect focal range. Shooting anything from grand vistas to getting up close and personal with a large subject. Nowadays I use prime lenses as much as I can, but in conditions when swapping lenses is not possible this is always on me. At f/2.8, your aperture is wide enough to get a good amount of light in making it useful for night photography too. I really like using this lens particularly when shooting waterfalls. It allows me to get in close while zoomed out, or stand back while zooming in.

I have several Sony G lenses, which I think are great lenses. This is my first G Master, and there is a marked difference in image quality. It is indeed pricey, but it does mot disappoint. Be careful, though, with the lens shade. It has a small button which must be pressed before turning it to remove it from the front of the lens. This is not the case with my G lenses.
