Create pleasing bokeh
With a rounded seven-blade diaphragm and f/4 maximum aperture – which remains constant for consistent performance throughout the zoom range – this Sony 16-35mm f4 lens makes it possible to create pleasing bokeh effects when employing selective focus techniques. With greater control over depth of field, you can create beautiful bokeh effects to place your subjects in crisp focus contrast against soft, out-of-focus surrounds – to help you draw the viewers’ eyes to where it matters most. From portraits to food shots and various creative compositions, you’ll relish this element of control.
Quality lightweight build for pristine images
Enjoy minimal interference in getting the best shots with this Sony 16-35mm f4 lens, which effectively reduces common problems such as flaring, distortion and chromatic aberrations. Even at ultra-wide angles you’ll be impressed! These results are thanks to the lens’s superior quality build, with 12 elements in 10 groups – including three extra-low dispersion glass elements and one large-diameter Advanced Aspherical (AA) element. Overall, the design is based on the Zeiss Tessar optical concept – also why it remains wonderfully light and compact!
As well as this lens’s top-quality construction and various lens elements, greater image clarity, contrast and colour can be attributed to the Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating. With this special coating applied to each lens surface, it helps to minimise reflections and ensure the best possible results in your images.

Image stabilisation for crisp detail
This Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens features the added benefit of built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation – so you can shoot handheld for longer, and into low-light shooting conditions. See the results for yourself as the stabilisation system works to offset camera shake, and relax knowing your images will still be crisp and in-focus. Whether you’re shooting at slow shutter speeds indoors or you want to capture a beautiful sunrise, this built-in image stabilisation technology is sure to come in handy.
