Sony Alpha FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Wide-Angle Zoom Lens

Open up a whole new world of creativity with its exceptional G-Master performance and 16-35mm f/2.8 wide-angle zoom. The lens captures high definition images from one side of the frame to the other. It can produce beautiful bokeh effects that adds depth and impact to your images. On top of the performance, the compact design of the lens makes it easier for active shooting sessions.

Constant f/2.8 Maximum Aperture

The exposure and depth of field regardless of the focal range to which you zoom is maintained due to the constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. The areas out of the focal plane appear blurred when you change your aperture to defocus the background. Circular aperture blades used in the lens enhances the bokeh effect of the blurred background.

G Master Design

Sony’s G Master lenses are designed to take full advantage of high-resolution image sensors at any focal length or zoom setting. Combination of smooth bokeh and high-resolution ensures incredible clear and detailed image reproduction with contrast throughout every frame. G Master achieves the rare combination of high resolving power and beautifully rendered background defocus.

Minimum Abberations

To minimize aberrations, this lens combines two extreme aspherical (XA) elements with extremely high surface precision (better that 0.01-micron) and three aspherical elements. Distortion, field curvature, and astigmatism are effectively controlled and deliver ultimate corner-to-corner resolution throughout the entire zoom and aperture range.

Two ED Glass Element

Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements maximizes the resolution and bokeh while leaving precisely rendered edges with minimal fringing or unnatural coloration. This all is done when it takes axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration due to differences in magnification out of the picture.

Two Direct Drive Supersonic Wave Motors (DDSSM)

This lens provides absolute focus precision. For both stills and movies, a floating mechanism driven by two DDSM (Direct Drive Supersonic Wave Motors) actuators maintain outstanding resolution from infinity to close focus. DDSSM has the capability to position the large, heavy optical assemblies required by large-aperture lenses with pinpoint precision, offering accurate, fast and quiet autofocus. Manual focus response is natural and intuitive with the DDSSM system.

Nano Anti-Reflective Coating

Even in difficult outdoor lighting conditions, minimize flare and ghosting by suppressing internal reflections and maintaining clarity with Sony’s original Nano Anti-Reflective Coating technology. This precisely defined regular nano-structure allows accurate light transmission, contributing to high-quality images, more so than with lenses that use coatings with an irregular nano-structure.
