Product Details

Sony Vario-Tessar T E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS Camera Lens, Model SEL1670Z


  • Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens
    Outstanding contrast and resolution throughout the image area at all zoom settings are the hallmark of this high-performance Carl Zeiss mid-range zoom lens. The renowned Zeiss T* (T-star) coating minimizes glare and ghosting that can degrade image quality, contributing to natural color reproduction as well as superb definition and clarity
  • High lens technology in a compact body
    The 4x zoom range of this lens extends from 24mm to 105mm (35mm full equivalent), making it ideal for a wide range of common subject and situations. A significant reduction in overall lens size, while maintaining first-class image quality, has been realized thanks to advanced Sony high precision, advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) production technology. The lens is compact and lightweight, making it a convenient portable choice for casual day-to-day shooting as well as landscapes, snapshots, portraits and more
  • Constant F4 maximum aperture
    A constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range allows the user to use optimum exposure parameters for the shot he or she visualizes at any focal length. The ability to use apertures of F4.0 at the telephoto end of the zoom range also reduces the need to use high ISO settings and allows the use of high shutter speeds to capture action when necessary. A circular aperture design helps to deliver smooth background defocusing
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization provides a marked reduction in image blur cause by camera shake, especially when shooting handheld at telephoto focal lengths or in dim indoor lighting. In the Anti Motion Blur and Handheld Twilight modes this technology makes it easier than ever to shoot clear, blur-free, low-noise images at night, indoors, or in any conditions that would otherwise be a challenge due to low light conditions, without having to boost sensitivity or use a tripod

Comments about Sony Vario-Tessar T E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Camera Lens:

This is my First Zeiss E-Mount lens. My previous lens was the 18-55mm Kit lens for the Sony C3. This new lens has some heft to it. I am an above average beginner camera person so I will tell you my impressions as a beginner. This lens produces extremely clear pictures, rich in colors, along with great contrast which produces very sharp pictures. Some people say in reviews that I read that it is slightly soft in the edges here and their. To me the pictures look perfect. I shoot only in jpeg with the sony A6000 camera. The camera may correct any small inperfections in the camera itself with jpegs. With the sony A6000 you get a very fast frame rate and with this lens 99.9 percent look cristal clear and in focus along with great color and contrast. I use to use the 18-55mm kit lens on the Sony C3 but this lens is definately superior. Abt had a great deal that if you buy this lens along with the Sony A6000 body you save $300. It was a great deal. The only negative is the size in carrying it around but I do not find this a problem for myself. I therefore highly recommend this lens and is a great combination when you use the Sony A6000
