Sony FE C 16-35mm T3.1 G Lens

A fresh start for Sony’s cinema-focused optics, the FE C 16-35mm T3.1 G lens is an incredible addition to the system and a brilliant symbol of the “One Mount” philosophy. Building on Sony’s already renowned full-frame glass and being a “G” lens, the C 16-35mm promises high sharpness and appealing bokeh while the T3.1 aperture helps with selective focus and light-gathering capabilities. Making it ideal for cinema is a unified design that features industry-standard 0.8mm gears for the focus, zoom, and (de-clickable) aperture rings. The bonus is the detachable servo zoom compatible with remote camera control.
