Overview

Our take on the Sony SAL1635Z2 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II

This high-performance 16-35mm wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for expansive landscapes and architecture shots on the ultra-wide end, and capable of rendering exquisite portraits or intimate street scenes on the longer end. With a minimum focus distance of eleven inches, you can also use it at its widest setting for beautiful close-ups with spacious backgrounds that recede into infinity.

Great photos indoors or out

While this lens's generous f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it well-suited for indoor shooting, particularly in cramped quarters, its rugged construction lends itself nicely to outdoor photography in just about any conditions. If you're out shooting on the beach and the wind starts kicking up sand, you won't have to worry — the dust- and moisture-resistant design means you can keep shooting even when the weather gets dicey.

All roads lead to sharpness and clarity

A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range ensures your images will be consistently well-exposed by allowing you to change focal lengths without having to adjust your exposure settings once you've gotten them dialed in. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating minimizes lens flare and ghosting and improves contrast and clarity. Specialized lens elements combine to give you high-resolution images with accurate color rendering and minimal distortion, while the 9-blade circular aperture gives you natural-looking defocused background highlights, drawing all the attention to your subject.
