Product description
Announced Jan 30, 2008

Co-developed with Carl Zeiss, the Sony 24-70mm F2.8 ZA SSM Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* is a fast standard zoom lens for full-frame and APS-C format SLT cameras. Optical construction consists of 17 elements in 13 groups with two aspheric elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, and its Carl Zeiss T* (T star) coating technology gives higher light transmission while minimizing flare. Sony's SSM ultrasonic-type focus motor provides fast and near-silent AF and of course, on SLT cameras this works in movie mode as well.
