About the Sony SEL1670Z 16-70mm f/4

It's good to own an E-mount camera

One of the big advantages of having a camera that uses Sony's E-mount system is the continued addition of premium lenses from Zeiss. This legendary manufacturer, in partnership with Sony, has introduced yet another "must-have" lens, a standard-length zoom with a constant f/4 maximum aperture that's sure to be on a lot of photographer's wish lists.

It's good to own an E-mount camera

One of the big advantages of having a camera that uses Sony's E-mount system is the continued addition of premium lenses from Zeiss. This legendary manufacturer, in partnership with Sony, has introduced yet another "must-have" lens, a standard-length zoom with a constant f/4 maximum aperture that's sure to be on a lot of photographer's wish lists.

With an equivalent focal length of 24-105mm, this is designed to be a daily-use lens, well-suited to the fast-developing shooting opportunities that travel and social events provide. A constant maximum aperture of f/4 throughout the shooting range means this lens is more than up to low-light challenges, while giving you the range to fill the frame with your subject from a distance. And because much of this lens' zoom range is in the sweet spot for portrait photography, the wide aperture will also lend itself to creamy, smooth out-of-focus backgrounds, so what you capture will stand out sharp and clear from electronic screens and printed pages.

Product Research

Features

Optics: The Sony Vario-Tessar T* (t-star) E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS zoom lens is compatible with the Sony α NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-105mm, and a 83°-23° field of view for capturing close-up portraits and expansive landscapes. The lens is produced under the strict standards and quality assurance system of Carl Zeiss. It comes with the ALC-SH127 lens hood, a soft carrying pouch with a drawstring, and front and rear lens caps.

Note: Using this lens on a full-frame camera may result in vignetting -- causing the corners of the image to become darker than the center.

Optical SteadyShot (OSS): The lens has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which helps achieve crisp, stable images and video in low-light or when zooming in on distant subjects. The OSS feature can be activated in the camera's menu.

Focusing: The lens can be used with the NEX-series cameras in the auto-focus, direct manual focus, or manual focus modes. You can switch between focusing modes in the camera menu.

Lens Hood: The lens comes with the ALC-SH127 lens hood which helps prevent lens flare. When installed, the lens hood adds approximately 1-3/8" to the overall length of the lens. The hood can be stored on the lens by installing it backwards.
