Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens


With an equivalent 24-105mm range on APS-C cameras, the Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS pairs the superb quality of ZEISS glass with an exceptionally versatile focal range. Featuring a constant f/4 aperture and relatively compact design, this lens is an excellent option for everyday carry, event coverage, group and individual portraits, or even landscape photography. A linear motor ensures quick, silent autofocusing while Optical SteadyShot image stabilization maintains crisp imagery when shooting handheld, slow shutter speeds, or video content. One extra-low dispersion element keeps colors accurate, four aspherical elements, including one Advanced Aspherical element, manage spherical aberrations, and ZEISS’s T* anti-reflective coatings minimize reflections, ensuring superior optical quality.
