Sony E 16mm f/2.8 Overview

Lightweight and exceptionally compact, the silver E 16mm f/2.8 Lens from Sony is a suitable travel companion. Providing a 24mm equivalent focal length when mounted to your APS-C-format E-mount camera, this lens will allow photographers to capture wide landscapes and work in tight spaces with ease. It offers a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 for operating in low-light conditions and it incorporates one aspherical element to combat various aberrations that may occur. Also, it has a fast and silent motor for autofocus in stills and video modes and features an internal focus design that ensures maximum performance. A seven-blade circular diaphragm is implemented as well for smooth bokeh. Additionally, it can accept optional ultra-wide and fisheye converters for getting 18mm and 15mm equivalent perspectives.

With its pancake design, the lens only extends 0.9" from the mount, resulting in a compact and lightweight camera system.
Designed for use on APS-C format cameras, this 16mm lens will provide a wide-angle perspective with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24mm.
The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture permits operation in less-than-ideal lighting situations and allows photographers to capture images with shallow depth of field.
One aspherical element is incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
The lens uses an internal focusing design that contributes to faster autofocus performance as well as a minimum focus distance of 9.4".
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
This lens is compatible with optical wide-angle and fisheye conversion lenses, which, when used, will convert this lens into an 18mm or 15mm lens, respectively.

will this fit on the sony a7sii? will it need to be in aps-c mode? will that equate to 24mm equivalent iif I was using lenses on the full frame?
Asked by: Jeffrey
Hello Jeffrey. This will physically fit on the a7sII, but it is a crop sensor lens. APS-C mode is a 1.5x crop factor, so it will make it a24mm equivalent.

question

I have this lens and on my Sony a6500, the AF Tracking Sens is grayed-out/disabled. I kind of thought I could track focus/follow focus with this lens on the sony a6500. Was I wrong?
Asked by: Jamison
Unfortunately this lens does not support this feature. Similar options that will support this feature are the Sony 10-18mm f4 and the Sigma 19mm f2.8 lenses.
