Sony Vario-Sonnar T* DT 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 ZA Overview

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 1.1' 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 Sony A-mount APS-C-format cameras, the 16-80mm will provide a versatile wide-angle to telephoto 24-120mm equivalent focal length.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
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.
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 1.1'.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Will this lens work with a Sony a99II? Thank you!
Asked by: Mark
Hi Mark, This lens will work with Sony a99II with some restrictions. (1) ADI Flash metering is available in combination with HVL-F58AM, F42AM, F56AM, F36AM, KONICA MINOLTA 5600HS(D), 3600HS(D) and 2500(D). (2) When you record movies with autofocus, the operating noise of the lens may be recorded. (3) The angle of view will be narrower down to that of APS-C size.

question

How would this work on an Sony Alpha 7?Is it considered an FE mount or E mount?Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* DT Standard Zoom Lens has the Sony Alpha mount, so would require an adapter to be used on the Sony a7, which has the E-mount. The lens is designed for APS-C size sensor cameras, so if you were to use it on the a7 with an adapter, you would need to shoot in the APS-C mode. It will not cover a full frame sensor.
