Product description
Announced Aug 27, 2013

The Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS lens for Sony’s NEX cameras is a versatile, high-quality lens for every day shooting. The renowned Zeiss T* (T-star) coating minimizes glare and ghosting, contributing to natural color and clarity. The 24-105mm equivalent focal length is common among full frame DSLR shooters as a convenient walk-around range. The lens has a constant F4 maximum aperture and circular aperture design, as well as Sony’s advanced aspherical lens technology. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization provides a marked reduction in image blur cause by camera shake, especially when shooting handheld at telephoto focal lengths or in dim indoor lighting.
