Small on Size, Big on Quality

Designed specially for Sony E-mount APS-C cameras, the Sony E 16-55mm f2.8 is a compact zoom lens with enormous capabilities. Like all Sony G series lenses, this 24-82.5mm equivalent zoom excels in both performance and image quality. Its fast f2.8 maximum aperture offers superior results and versatility in low light, as well as smooth, stunning bokeh when desired. Whether it’s shooting dusk landscapes, food snaps or candid portraits, the results are bound to impress.

Portable, Manageable & Weather Resistant

Weighing just 494g, this Sony 16-55mm f2.8 G lens is remarkably portable and manageable. Teamed with a compact Sony E-mount camera body, it forms a system ideal for intrepid travel photographers, on-the-go content creators, and casual shooters who like to capture life as it unfolds. A fluorine coating repels water and dirt from the front lens surface, and a dust- and moisture-resistant design ensures reliable performance even in challenging conditions.

Superb Image Quality from Edge to Edge

Featuring a new optical design, the Sony E 16-55mm f2.8 lens produces superb edge-to-edge resolution, even at f2.8. Two AA (advanced aspherical), two aspherical and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements minimise aberration and colour bleeding to keep details crisp and distortion-free. The Sony 16-55mm also features a Nano AR Coating, which reduces ghosting and flare to keep backlit scenes, like sunsets or portraits with lens flare, high in contrast and detail.

Quiet, Highly Responsive AF

The Sony E 16-55mm f2.8 lens features the same kind of high-performance XD (eXtreme Dynamic) linear motor that powers autofocus in elite G Master series lenses. Harnessing the camera body’s full speed potential, this delivers superbly accurate and responsive focus and tracking, even with quick-moving subjects like children, athletes or wild animals. Low noise and vibration make for superior audio and video capture.

Intuitive Controls & Handling

Taking tricky-to-get shots is easier thanks to the E-mount Sony 16-55mm f2.8 G lens’ intuitive, easy to access controls. The focus hold button maintains your focus point when you recompose and can be customised to control other functions, such as Right/Left Eye Select. The AF/MF mode switch lets you instantly switch between auto and manual focus, and Linear-response MF adjusts manual focus in precise and natural-feeling sync with focus ring rotations.
