Product Details

Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens, Model SAL16105

Specially designed APS-size CCD imagers like the Exmor™ sensor of the Sony® a(alpha DSLR-A700 camera), this amazingly compact premium Zoom lens provides superior all-around performance. Its 35mm-equivalent range of 24mm wide-angle to 157.5mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-ups.

Features:

  • Internal Focusing System
    Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change -- creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn't change Balance
  • Sophisticated Multi-Element Design
    16 lens elements in 13 groups correct visual aberrations across the entire Zoom range and help reduce weight
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
    ED Glass lens elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension
  • Circular Aperture
    Because Aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

Specifications:

  • Focal Length: APS: 16-105mm (35mm Equivalent: 24-157.5mm)
  • Filter Diameter: 62mm
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 1' 4" (40cm)
  • Magnification: x 0.23
  • Lens Groups-Elements: 11 groups, 15 elements
  • Distance Scale: Yes
  • Distance Encoder: Yes
  • Aperture (Max.): f/3.5 - 5.6

Slow Lens

By 

from Phoenix

Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

Advertised as f/3.5 - 5.6. At 16 mm focal length, the maximum aperture is f/3.5. However, at 24 mm focal length, it jumps to f/4.5, and at 35 mm focal length, it jumps to f/5, which is disappointingly "slow", This information is not available in the "specifications". This lens is "slower" than it would appear.

Best All Purpose Lens

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

Aside from this lens not reaching the lowest of low F-stops, this lens does it ALL. From architecture wide angle photography and landscapes to portraits of people and objects with high detail to the sports shot from across the field. you can capture everything. i was recently traveling for architecture and the ability to capture the entirety of a building is what set this lens apart from all my friends who were rocking the 18mm minimum focal length lens. if you know the distance to your subject the on lens display of focus is great for those full manual shots. i would recommend this lens for the advanced to professional level photographer. absolutely perfect for the beginer looking for their first "pro" lens.

My every day lens

By 

from Atascadero, California

Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

First I love this lens....I use it with my a55 which I purchased at the same time. It takes beautiful pictures. The only thing that that I am not happy about, I bought this lens thinking that it had a Internal focusing system that did not "change the length of the lens" as it is stated in the specs. That was one of the selling points for me as I had issues with my old less expensive lens on my last Sony camera. But over all I love the lens....Sony you need to change what is said in the specs! I uploaded a couple of pictures but they come out blurry.....

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

    This lens is a good for just about any situation. I used to use the 18-250mm as my walk around lens but since getting this one I've found that for most situations I like this one more. Having the 16mm option is sometimes just enough to keep me from having to reach into my bag for my UWA. I have found it to be a very sharp lens. It's also a little more compact as you can expect.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

      Overall this lens is my favorite next to the 50mm f/1.4, I take this lens on all my shoots and have used in in most all weather conditions as well as indoor without flash. I find the versatility of this lens remarkable and really the best in class for the price. When shooting at full aperture I strongly encourage removing the lens hood if you can. I'm getting ready to go on a 5 day shoot and this lens was my first choice for my toolbox. If you intend to stick with APS-C sensor, this lens should become a standard for your toolbox.

      from Atlanta, GA

      Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Wide-Range Zoom Lens:

        Pros explanation: The build of this lens is incredibly sturdy and feels like a quality lens, which it is. From using the old kit lens 18-70 and 16-105mm for the same photographs, you will notice the very saturated colors, much sharper than the kit lens. The focal range is very great for decreasing instances on changing lens. The wide angle surely comes in handy for wanting to capture those wide angle stadium shots or wedding parties. If you're looking for a lens with great quality and build of that of the Carl Zeiss 16-80mm, then this is a great lens to choose for that. If you are able to go for the CZ lens, then I would recommend that to you. You might not miss the 25mm addition just simply because its a Carl Zeiss and added that its highest aperture is 4.5 vs the standard 5.6 such as this lens. Also, I recommend using the Sony/Carl Zeiss UV filter for this lens. Because of the 16mm lens range, third party filters may not be thin enough for this lens. Added bonus is that you're making your Sony lens a CZ since the UV filter has the T* coating as on the CZ lenses.
