Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master Zoom is a lightweight, wide-angled zoom lens ideal for landscape, architecture, and other expansive subjects. Capture beautiful bokeh with this lens when focusing on a subject in a landscape, especially at f/2.8. The compact size of this zoom mean it is suitable for your portable camera system with an E-Mount.

Offers performance to take full advantage of the high-resolution potential of the latest and future camera bodies. The most advanced Sony optical and mechanical technologies come together to deliver extraordinary rendering and clarity.

The advanced design of the G Master lens features (2) Sony XA (Xtreme Aspherical) Elements. That translates into outstanding resolution with low distortion. It also enhances the bokeh, along with the 11-bladed aperture. 

Clarity and Contrast in any Light

Sony's original Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Freedom from flare over a wide range of incident light angles provides greater framing and composing flexibility, particularly at wide-angle focal lengths.

Optimum Resolution at any Focal Length

Consistently high resolution is achieved from infinity to the closest focusing distance. This lens employs a floating focus mechanism with two independently driven lens groups. This system helps to reduce all types of aberration to minimum levels and thereby maintain sharp, high-resolution rendering from infinity focus for landscapes, for example, all the way down to close focus for portraits and similar subjects.

Fast, Precise Autofocus

Two DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) systems employing original Sony piezoelectric motors directly drive two focus groups in a floating focus configuration. The focus groups are positioned with high precision for the highest possible focus accuracy. DDSSM is quiet too, making it ideal for shooting movies, as well as stills.

Versatile Operation

A focus hold button, manual focus ring, AF/MF switch, and other controls provide versatile fingertip operation. The focus hold button can be customized via a body menu that allows a variety of functions to be assigned to the button to match your needs.

Fluorine-Coated Front Element

The lens's front element features a fluorine coating that helps to prevent fingerprints on the lens and stop dirt from sticking, and makes it easier to wipe away any dirt and fingerprints that do appear on the lens surface.

Reliability in Harsh Conditions

The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant for extra protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions. 

The E-Mount on this lens fits Full Frame and APS-C cameras.
