Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    Sony introduces the Vario–Tessar T* FE 16–35mm F4 ZA OSS Wide Angle Zoom Lens with ZEISS optical glass and T* coating process for the E–mount Alpha interchangeable lens cameras. Class leading optical performance and design delivered by ZEISS T* lenses ensures that every shot is highly detailed with superior contrast, and resolution. The SEL1635Z is equipped with a 7 blade circular aperture enhancing the buttery smooth 'bokeh' effect ideal for separating your subject from the background. The lens incorporates Optical SteadyShot&Reg; image stabilization, Silent AF internal focusing motor stopping motion and handling low light environment. Ideal for Full–Frame and APS–C E–mount cameras.

Details from Sony

    Unmatched ZEISS T* (T–star) coating

    The name ZEISS is synonymous with high quality optics unsurpassed in optical performance. Pioneering the lens coating process ZEISS developed the T*(T–Star) lens coat that virtully eliminate lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering to produce uniform edge–to–edge detailed images. T* symbol only appears on multi–element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality.

    Circular Aperture

    When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This a??bokeh' effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. Circular aperture overcomes this problem through the use of curved blades that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide–open setting to when it is closed. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

    Aspherical lens elements

    Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane, caused by differences in refraction in conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large–aperture lenses. Specially shaped "aspherical" elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well–designed aspherical elements often requires complex glass molding technology, but can reduce the total number of elements required, thus reducing overall size and weight.

    ED (Extra–low Dispersion) glass

    As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings.

    Internal focusing

    Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change when focusing. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient when using a polarizing filter.

    Lens–based Optical SteadyShot® image stabilization

    Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur. The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high–end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high–quality movies as well as stills.

    Dust and moisture resistant design¹

    The dust and moisture resistance design makes this lens appropriate for heavy–duty outdoor use, especially when combined with a camera that employs weather resistant measures such as the Sony's a7 series of cameras.¹

    ¹ Dust and moisture resistant design does not guarantee complete protection against dust or moisture ingress.
