Sony 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 overview

  • 1Description

Have all your bases covered with the Vario-Sonnar T* DT 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 ZA Lens from Sony, which offers an extremely versatile 24-120mm equivalent zoom range on APS-C format A-mount cameras. Benefitting from a Zeiss design that incorporates two aspherical elements and the renowned T* coating, this zoom will help capture sharp, aberration-free images. Also, due to the use of a variable f/3.5-4.5 maximum aperture the overall size and weight is kept to a minimum. Handling and operation is intuitive, especially with an Auto Clutch mechanism that prevents the focusing ring from rotating when autofocus is engaged. Additionally, the internally focusing lens has a minimum focus distance of 13.8" and it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Based on the Zeiss Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with 14 elements in 10 groups that helps provide a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-4.5 while simultaneously reducing flare and improving contrast.
A standard-length zoom designed for APS-C A-mount cameras, the 16-80mm will provide a versatile wide-angle to telephoto 24-120mm equivalent focal length.
A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
An Auto Clutch mechanism prevents the focusing ring from rotating when the lens is set to autofocus, allowing for easier, and more natural feeling control over the lens.
An internal focus design enables fast autofocus as well as a minimum focus distance of 13.8".
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
