Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens
Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens from Sony is a wide-angle zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. Distinguished by its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, this lens offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range. And benefits from working in low-light conditions. The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations. Along with two XA elements and three aspherical elements. Which significantly controls spherical aberrations for a high degree of image sharpness and clarity.
Complementing the optical assets, this lens is also notable for its inclusion of an 11-blade circular diaphragm to produce smooth, soft-edged bokeh with selective focus imagery. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to support shooting in inclement conditions and a dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch.
Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications.
Wide-angle zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, this lens is also compatible with APS-C models where it provides a 24-52.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range for working in difficult lighting conditions.
Two Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) autofocus groups offer quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance that is ideal for both stills and video applications.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures. Additionally, the front element has a fluorine coating to guard against fingerprints and dust from adhering to it.
Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
