Product Details

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

Features:

  • 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

Super nice lens

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

Using this on my a6000 and am very satisfied with performance of this lens. Very good image quality across the full focal range. This lens is on my camera most of the time and works great in most situations.

Great walkaround lens

By 

from Silicon Valley, CA, USA

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

This Zeiss lens is a great walkaround lens and as a replacement for the kit lens. While a bit pricey, the improvement in image quality as compared to the kit lens (SEL1650 for my NEX6) is leaps and bounds. A f2.8 aperture would make this lens even better, but then the lens may end up too big and heavy to be useful as a walkaround lens.

Great lens but heavy

By 

from St. Louis

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

A really great lens living up to the Zeiss tradition. My only niggle about this lens is its weight. But, then again the weight is a result of how well made the lens is. Zoom and focus are tight, no lens creep

Pricey but a keeper

By 

from New York

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

I've been waiting for a better quality daily lens for my NEX 7 to replace my kit and this one pretty much it. The lens is solidly built, light and good looking. Performance wise, very clear , fast and performs well on low lights. I was little bit hesitant because of the price but got it anyway. I brought it on my travel to Europe and so far have been satisfied with the results. My NEX 7 now has a perfect partner. I also have 35mm F1.8 Prime lens in addition to the standard kit.

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

Brings out the full potential of the NEX7

By 

from colorado USA

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

I searched high and low this year for a great lens for my NEX 7 that I have had since it was released. And this is truly one fantastic lens. It truly brings out the full potential of the NEX7, making it a fantastic travel camera. I pop iy in my bag with my iPad and macbook Pro and I am good to go without having to lug a ton of gear around. I own a Nikon D800, D7100, Fuji X100s, and my iPhone, and I have more fun with this lens and this camera combo than any of the others. The only drawback I have seen so far is autofocus in AF-C mode. At times the camera hunts and focus is slow. Otherwise no complaints whatsoever. It is truly great fun to shoot with this combo.
