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! 

Reduced reflections

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.

Fast and silent AF

Whether you’re subject is standing still or moving, enjoy the benefits of fast and accurate autofocusing performance with this Sony lens. Equipped with a linear autofocus motor and an internal focusing design, you’ll never miss the shot. The AF is also quiet, so even when you’re shooting video you won’t hear a sound in your audio.

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.

Extra protection for the outdoors

Keep shooting wherever you go with peace of mind knowing this Sony 16-35mm f4 lens is both dust- and moisture-resistant. Whether you find yourself photographing in the Aussie Outback or simply want that extra bit of protection in case light rain catches you out, there’s no denying the extra protection weather-sealing grants. The Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens also flaunts rubberised control rings for easier handling in colder temperatures.

Can I use this lens on an APS-C format camera?

Yes, while this Sony 16-35mm f4 lens was designed for full-frame Sony E-Mount cameras, it can also be used with APS-C format cameras, where it will provide a 24-52.5mm equivalent zoom range.

What’s the best way to protect my lens?

We always recommend keeping a clear or UV filter on your lens – at all times, even during storage – for protection against scratches and bumps, as well as any dirt or residue that can find its way onto your front lens element. 

What’s the filter thread on the Sony 16-35mm f4 ZA OSS Lens?

This lens features a 72mm filter thread.

Can I use the Sony 16-35mm f4 lens with a camera that already has image stabilisation in it?

Yes, absolutely. When you use a lens with built-in image stabilisation with a camera that already has its own built-in image stabilisation system, they’ll actually work together to create the best shot, free of blur.

Is the Sony 16-35mm f4 lens freeze-proof?

No, this lens is not freeze-proof. It is dust- and moisture-resistant, and also features rubberised control rings that make it easier to use the lens in colder conditions.
