The Portable Powerhouse Standard Zoom
Impressively compact and versatile, the Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 is a wide-angle to long-normal zoom characterized by its retractable design and sleek profile. Its svelte design makes this lens ideal for walkaround, everyday shooting, and the flexible focal length range benefits a wide range of subject types, from street shooting to portraiture to travel photography.
Small and Light
Small size and lightweight design is what this lens is all about, meaning it's the perfect companion for casual shooting days when a single, versatile, and portable lens is most desirable.
  • Retractable design maintains an especially compact profile when not in use, measuring just 1.8" long.
  • Weighing 5.9 oz, its featherweight stature pairs well with compact full-frame or APS-C bodies.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant design suits working in inclement weather conditions.
Optics and AF
  • Three aspherical elements help to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • The use of specialized elements also contributes to a smaller, lighter physical design.
  • Linear motor, along with an internal focusing mechanism, promotes fast, precise, and quiet focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications.
  • In addition to the variety afforded by the 28-60mm focal length range, this lens also has a versatile 11.8" minimum focusing distance that enables working with close-up subjects.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Asked by: Robert
Yes, it is an E mount lens and will work, however it is for a full frame camera and so the effective focal length will be similar to a 40-90mm.

What's a lens that's a step up in speed/quality vs this one while keeping size small? To be used on A7Cii.
Asked by: Tom
In order to get a lens that is better quality or faster than the Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 Lens yet still maintain the small size, you would need to use either a prime lens such as this40mm f2.5: https://bhpho.to/30Bhs3E or choose a larger lens such as this Sigma 28-70mm f2.8: https://bhpho.to/2Zbj7Mq.

Is this lens weather sealed?

Is this lens weather sealed?
Asked by: Oldrin
No, this lens is not weather seal. The rear mount open as you zoom the lens out and you can see all the electronics inside the lens. Also dust and water can easily go in between the rings on the lens if the unit is not protect against the element.

What if any lens hood will work with this? thanks

What if any lens hood will work with this? thanks
Asked by: Josephine
Why? This is not meant to compete with anything else. It is made to be tiny, compact and easily ported with minimal weight and size. Pocketable? I had the version for the NEX series years ago and it was sharp enough then though it broke down after a couple years and could no longer be recognized by the camera so it was worthless
