Product description
Announced Apr 23, 2015

Manufacturer description: The new Sony Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM II wide angle zoom lens delivers significant improvements in image quality, ghost reduction and AF performance over its predecessor and adds a rugged dust- and moisture-resistant design. It features a ZEISS T* coating on its optical surfaces that minimizes ghosting and flare plus aspherical and ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements that suppress aberration and minimize distortion. Additionally, this new lens features enhanced AF capabilities compared to the original 16-35mm F2.8, delivering approximately 4x the subject tracking speed thanks to its SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system and faster, more powerful processing in the lens LSI.
