The Sony 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 is the ultimate all-in-one zoom lens designed specifically for DSLR imaging. It’s the first professional-grade 5X zoom lens specifically designed for APS-size CCD image sensors -- providing incredible precision in a single compact, easy-to-carry lens that carries you from 24mm wide-angle to 120mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). Advanced Carl Zeiss® optical design and anti-flare T* Coating make this one of the most valued lenses in the world of digital photography.
Based on the Zeiss Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with 14 elements in 10 groups that helps provide a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-4.5 while simultaneously reducing flare and improving contrast.
A standard-length zoom designed for Sony A-mount APS-C-format cameras, the 16-80mm will provide a versatile wide-angle to telephoto 24-120mm equivalent focal length.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
An Auto Clutch mechanism prevents the focusing ring from rotating when the lens is set to autofocus, allowing for easier, and more natural feeling control over the lens.
An internal focus design enables fast autofocus as well as a minimum focus distance of 1.1'.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
