A small wide F2.8 zoom that goes anywhere

A small wide F2.8 zoom that goes anywhere

With a 16-25 mm range that is ideal for scenery, cityscapes, selfies, travel, and general snapshots, this versatile wide-angle zoom delivers beautiful G Lens rendering and bokeh at all focal lengths in a remarkably compact, lightweight design. You get refined large-aperture wide-angle imaging performance for both stills and movies.

Superb sharpness at any focal length

Superb sharpness at any focal length

An advanced optical design using three ED (Extra low Dispersion) glass elements plus four aspherical elements that include one ED Aspherical glass element delivers high resolution throughout the 16-25 mm zoom range in a remarkably compact lens. Flare, ghosting, and colour bleeding are effectively subdued for clear, detailed rendering.

Impressive close-up performance

Impressive close-up performance

Maximum magnification is 0.2x (AF)/0.23x (MF) with a minimum focus distance of 0.18 m (0.59ft) (AF)/0.17 m (0.56ft) (MF) at the 16 mm end of the range and 0.24 m (AF) (0.79ft)/0.22 m (0.73ft) (MF) at the 25 mm end of the range for superb wide-angle close-up performance. Wide-angle coverage lets you shoot close while simultaneously capturing the subject's surroundings.

Deep bokeh makes the subject stand out

Deep bokeh makes the subject stand out

A maximum aperture that remains constant at F2.8 throughout the zoom range, state-of-the-art optical design, and an 11-blade aperture unit all work in harmony to deliver smooth, deep G Lens bokeh in a versatile wide-angle zoom lens. ED glass elements reduce colour bleeding for excellent contrast and clarity.

AF that maximises body potential

AF that maximises body potential

Two specially optimised linear motors and a precision control system acquire focus on any subject with remarkable speed and accuracy. Tracking performance is excellent, easily keeping up even with the Sony's advanced model ฮฑ9 III body at up to 120 fps. Precise, quiet focus is smoothly acquired and maintained even when shooting high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movies.

High optical performance in a compact lens

High optical performance in a compact lens

Even though it boasts an advanced optical design that includes four aspherical elements, one of which is ED Aspherical, this lens is only 74.8 mm in diameter by 91.4 mmย in lengthย (3 x 3-5/8 inch). Engineering plastics enhance durability while reducing weight to just 409 gramsย  (14.5 oz), making this a low-stress F2.8 choice for long shooting sessions or low-light situations.

F2.8 in a mobile zoom is great for movies
