Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 FE OSS Interchangeable Standard Zoom Lens

This affordable mid-range zoom lens for 35mm full frame format cameras combines high optical performance with compact, lightweight convenience. The FE 28-70mm is ideal for a wide range of subjects, and is dust and moisture resistant for consistent reliability. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization included. A standard zoom lens is a lens in which the focal length varies, unlike a prime or fixed lens. A zoom lens is one that maintain (or regains) focus even with focal length of the subject-matter changes. Zoom lenses, such as this, provide the user with a convenient, go-to lens of variable focal length.

35mm Full Frame Imaging

This 35mm Full Frame mid-range zoom lens is designed to work with all E-mount cameras from Sony, delivering outstanding contrast and resolution right out to the edges of the image.

Advanced Aspherical Lens Technology

Aspherical lens technology maximizes portability without sacrificing imaging power. The lens combines three aspherical elements with one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to deliver high-precision shots and breathtaking rendering without the bulky design usually associated with similar DSLR lenses.

Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Element

Lenses constructed with conventional optical glass struggle with chromatic aberration as the focal length increases. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass technology was developed to counter these issues, delivering superior contrast and color quality across the entire focal length, even at large aperture settings.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization

Optical SteadyShot keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, Optical SteadyShot ensures brilliant photographic results, even at high zooms.

7-Blade Circular Aperture

The 7-blade circular design keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular throughout the full range of F-stops. This makes it possible to achieve smoother, more natural defocusing in your images — including artistic blurring or 'bokeh' — and greater control over the depth of field.

Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens

Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 FE OSS Interchangeable Standard Zoom Lens SKU: SEL2870

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Kit Lens I bought this as well as a Sony Alpha A 7 IV camera system. The lens is a great pairing with the camera and is designed for traveling. The small size and quality of the construction gives me great confidence in making a variety of shots whether they are buildings or individual portraits. I also like the weather protection that is advertised for this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This product has given me high quality photos and it is great for beginners because it is easy to use. The value on this product is outstanding and you really get your money’s worth. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. I bought this as part of a package with a Sony camera so far I really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good Lens For serious work, I use my A7RIV with G or G master lenses. I was looking for a lightweight lens for my A7C for carrying when I don't plan any photos. I dug the 28-70 lens out of my collection to test. I wasn't expecting much, but I was surprised. The photo below was unedited with reduced file size for web.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice "start-up" lens The Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS was purchased as a "Start-Up" for a Sony a7RIII. It was affordable and a good lens to get you familiar with how full frame Sony's work. With Sony "Super 35" & "Zoom" it is very veristal and can get you very familiar with the a camera. Also as a base lens with a camera that has a high ISO it can come in very handy. The sharpness isn't bad at all, nice and lite, but remember it is only 3.5-5.6 and only 70mm is the max.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Low cost and good size The kit lens is low cost and relatively small but it is soft and not adequate to take advantage of the camera sensor.
Date published: 2020-04-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is alright I got this lens with my A 7iii camera the lens is a kit lens and for a beginner it does an alright job. I wished it would have been an f4 or the way through but I think it would have been more expensive. Again for someone who is starting photography is a good start lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starter lens I purchased this as a kit with the A7III. This is my first full frame camera and I am extremely happy with the quality of the photos that I have taken. The kit lens is a good all around starter lens and I anticipate adding a prime lens in the near future.
