Covering a wide-angle to portrait-length zoom range, this Sony 24-70mm f/4 lens makes a great go-to piece of equipment that can be used to get a range of shots with just the one lens. Enjoy shooting beautiful portraits and group family photos, take eye-catching food shots, or step outside for a bit of street and documentary photography. From all-encompassing, wide-angle panoramas of soaring canyons and rolling hills to up-close portraits with lots of detail, enjoy the versatility on offer with this great Sony lens.
With a rounded seven-blade diaphragm and f/4 maximum aperture – which remains constant throughout the entire zoom range – it is possible to create pleasing bokeh effects with this lens when employing selective focus techniques. This makes beautiful portraits achievable – as well as many other types of photos that can be enhanced by creating contrast between in focus subjects and soft background blur. Whether you’re a pro at managing your settings to get exactly the shot you want or you’re still learning how to adjust depth of field for impressive results, this lens puts it all within reach.
Flaring, distortion and chromatic aberrations can be common problems with cheaper lenses. However, this Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens flaunts a superior quality build that ensures minimal interference when it comes to getting great shots. Built in a design based on the Zeiss Tessar optical concept with 12 elements in 10 groups, this lens offsets such problems while remaining small and compact in size. This is thanks to five aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion glass element, as well as Zeiss T anti-reflective coatings on each lens surface. Say hello to beautiful photos!
This Sony lens is capable of fast and accurate autofocusing performance, whether it’s a person dancing that you wish to photograph or a skateboarder completing a jump mid-air. Equipped with a linear autofocus motor and an internal focusing design, this impressive AF feature is also silent – making it ideal for video, as you can trust it won’t interfere with your audio.
When shooting telephoto or in low-light conditions, camera shake can be problematic. To prevent blurry images in such conditions, this Sony 24-70mm f/4 lens features built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation, which works to offset camera shake and ensure crisp image detail. This lens IS system can also be combined with IS systems in select cameras for even more effective control. So whether you’re shooting a portrait as the sun goes down and the light starts to fade or you’re capturing shadows and low-lit atmospheres indoors, this lens will help you get the shot you want with clarity.
Every photographer wants to keep shooting to their heart’s content, without interference from the weather or varying outdoor conditions. With the Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens, you can! This is thanks to the lens’s dust- and moisture-sealed design. It also flaunts rubberised control rings, which make it easier to grasp in cold temperatures. Now you can keep shooting with peace of mind, from cold nights in Tasmania to the dusty deserts of Egypt and the misty atmosphere of Niagara Falls.
