Product Details

Sony Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 Zoom Camera Lens, Mode SAL2470Z

If you insist on prime-lens image quality but envy the convenience of a variable focal length, here's a lens that brings the best of both worlds together. For many discriminating photographers it is a lens that will stay on the camera most of the time. Its extraordinary sharpness and contrast are fully retained at all focal lengths and apertures. You'll feel and see legendary Carl Zeiss quality in every shot.


  • Superb image quality
    Two ED glass elements and 2 aspherical elements help reduce chromatic aberration throughout the focal range.
  • Carl Zeiss® T* coating
    The legendary T* coating from Carl Zeiss makes it possible to design complex optics by reducing internal reflections on multi-element lenses minimizing flare and allowing for higher contrast. The result, significantly improved performance throughout the entire optical path.
  • 17 elements in 13 groups
    The specially designed grouping of elements includes a floating design between the 3rd and 4th groups allowing for excellent compensation of various aberrations caused by zooming.
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
    Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
  • Convenience without compromise
    For those that insist on the quality of a large aperture prime, but want the convenience of a variable focal length, this is a lens that brings the best of both worlds. The large F2.8 maximum aperture is maintained throughout the focal range of 24mm - 70mm.
  • Focus Hold Button
    Focus mode switch and focus hold button offer precision focus control.
