Take great stills and magnificent movies with this Sony 16-70mm f/4 camera lens.It includes Sony's E-mount camera mount so that you can connect it to a wide range of Sony crop sensor cameras and camcorders. Reliable extra-low dispersion glass and aspherical lens elements combine with Carl Zeiss T* lens coatings in this mirrorless camera lens to eliminate flare, ghosting and distortions to ensure your photos turn out great each time. It also includes built-in image stabilization so that hand shake and vibrations are minimized, letting you get good shots even in low-light conditions without having to bump up the ISO. The maximum f/4 aperture remains consistent throughout the zoom range, making it easy to use it with camcorders and still produce consistent lighting as you're zooming in.
Fast autofocus on this Sony 16-70mm f/4 camera lens lets you take images of fast-moving people and vehicles for impressive sports photos, andit works well even when it's dark. The internal focusing mechanism inside this zoom lens ensures the overall length of the lens doesn't change even when you'rechanging the focus from 1 meter to infinity. It's also easy to add a circular polarizing filter as the end of this Sony 16-70mm f/4 camera lens doesn't rotate.
Outstanding contrast and resolution throughout the image area at all zoom settings are the hallmark of this high-performance Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens. The renowned Zeiss T* (T-star) coating minimizes glare and ghosting that can degrade image quality, contributing to natural color reproduction as well as superb definition and clarity.
The 4x zoom range of this lens extends from 24mm to 105mm (35mm full equivalent), making it ideal for a wide range of common subject and situations. A significant reduction in overall lens size, while maintaining first-class image quality, has been realized thanks to advanced Sony high precision, advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) production technology. The lens is compact and lightweight, making it a convenient portable choice for casual day-to-day shooting as well as landscapes, snapshots, portraits and more.
A constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range allows the user to use optimum exposure parameters for the shot visualized at any focal length. The ability to use apertures of F4.0 at the telephoto end of the zoom range also reduces the need to use high ISO settings and allows the use of high shutter speeds to capture action when necessary. A circular aperture design helps to deliver smooth background defocusing.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization provides a marked reduction in image blur cause by camera shake, especially when shooting handheld at telephoto focal lengths or in dim indoor lighting. In the Anti Motion Blur and Handheld Twilight modes this technology makes it easier than ever to shoot clear, blur-free, low-noise images at night, indoors, or in any conditions that would otherwise be a challenge due to low light conditions, without having to boost sensitivity or use a tripod.
