The Sony Vario-Sonnar T* coated 16-35mm Zoom with a constant f/2.8 aperture wide-angle zoom features a super-fast f/2.8 constant aperture, SteadyShot in-camera stabilization, Super Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, three aspherical elements and Carl Zeiss T* coatings on glass-to-air surfaces.

With the included SteadyShot image stabilization, you can pair this lens with your Sony α camera to shoot handheld without the blurring. This works especially well with Sony cameras which already include SteadyShot IS.

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded bokeh or defocusing. The aspherical elements of this lens minimize distortion while ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) and Super ED glass elements provide suprior contrast, resolution, and color fidelity. It includes (3) aspherical lens elements and (2) ED glass elements.

Internal focusing reduces minimum focusing distances. It allows fast autofocus response while a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) ensures silent operation so you can focus quickly and quietly. This lens allows you to lock your focus at the current setting with a Focus Hold Button on the lens barrel. The lens also offers smooth, quiet autofocus AF operation with Super Sonic wave motor.

T* coating on lens optical surfaces can reduce flare and ghosting.
