You must complete all required fields.
  • Full-frame Wide-angle Zoom Lens
  • E-mount
  • Optical SteadyShot
  • Filter Diameter: 72mm
  • ZEISS T* coating delivers superior contrast and resolution
  • 5 Aspherical lenses for low distortion and corner sharpness
  • Large Advanced Aspherical element for wide-angle performance
  • 3 Extra Low Dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberration
  • Constant F4 max aperture maintains exposure / depth of field
  • Unmatched ZEISS T* (T-star) coating:
  • Coated optics were pioneered by ZEISS - and this superb lens features the ZEISS T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces
  • The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality, with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges
  • Not simply applied to any lens-the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path, therefore guaranteeing the highest quality
  • Circular Aperture:
  • When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred
  • This bokeh effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens
  • Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light
  • Circular aperture overcomes this problem through the use of curved blades that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result
  • Aspherical lens elements:
  • Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight
  • Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane, caused by differences in refraction in conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses
  • Specially shaped "aspherical" elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion
  • Well-designed aspherical elements often requires complex glass molding technology, but can reduce the total number of elements required, thus reducing overall size and weight
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass:
  • As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution
  • ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings
  • Internal focusing:
  • Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change when focusing
  • Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance
  • Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient when using a polarizing filter
  • Lens-based Optical SteadyShot image stabilization:
  • Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur
  • The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high-end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high-quality movies as well as stills
  • Dust and moisture resistant design:
  • The dust and moisture resistance design makes this lens appropriate for heavy-duty outdoor use, especially when combined with a camera that employs weather resistant measures such as the Sony's a7 series of cameras
  • Included:
  • Zeiss FE 16-35mm f/4 T* Lens
  • Bayonet type lens hood (petal)
  • Front and rear lens cap
  • Lens case
  • Compatibility:
  • A7 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera
  • A7R Full Frame Mirrorless Camera
  • A7S Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

Additional Information

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Great contrast and color, typical of a Zeiss lens. What amazes me is how sharp this lens is at corners, even in the extreme wide angle end (16mm). The distortion is superbly well controlled too. The sharpness in the corner indicates that the lens is inherently free of severe distortions, because the interpolation performed to correct the distortion often loses resolution in doing so. Goes to show how much quality optic this lens really is! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The must-have lens for social photography Excellent image quality, and a perfect focal range for any occasion where people will gather. Zeiss glass will never disappoint you. Paired to my Sony A7II camera, it focuses in a snap, and I never miss a shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Released in the USA Superb .... Just purchased this lens on 11/20/14 Took it for ride this morning. Shot some landscape in Raw (A7r) Very impressive resolution and color accuracy A must have for Landscape users Love the F4 at all zoom levels. Not too heavy either .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and durability This is the very first lens I bought for my Sony A7Rii about a year an a half ago. It is robust and really well made, the quality is flawless, it has a little bit of distortion at 16mm but it isn't terrible. I love this lens and would recommend for any serious photographer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens but expensive This is a very nice lens, I can give 9.5 out of 10 for the image quality of this lens, except for one little obvious defect: 90 percent of the area is very sharp except the very edge area has a bit of blur. There are also some distortion on the four corner too, but it's a ultra wide angle lens, and that cannot be avoid. I love this lens' exterior look and its build quality. The price is a bit high compare to sel2470z, probably the devaluation of Canadian dollars played some effect on pricing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Excellent Lens I have used this lens starting in December 2014. It is very sharp and the colors are very pleasing. The 16 mm setting allowed to take really nice photos at Machu Picchu and the lakes in the California Sierras. The photos are crisp from foreground to background. The entire range of focal lengths produce excellent photos. It works well with the Sony A7R.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressed! I was skeptical if this lens would produce the goods on the A7R, it does!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LENS, GREAT GLASS, GREAT VALUE I have used this lens for landscape and closeup photos. Closeup very narrow/shallow depth @f/4 and great bokeh is an added greatness. For landscape great clarity out far and in close manual focus out to 3/4 way very easy on the A7s with aperture selection f/4-22 for great depth clarity.
