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 mode switch and focus hold button offer precision focus control.
