The Sony-Zeiss 16-35mm f/2.8 A-Mount Lens

A lens that we’ve been waiting for since we first heard about it—the Sony 16-35mm is a Zeiss-designed wide aperture, wide angle zoom perfect for the full frame A99. With 17 elements, including non-spherical and ED glass, a supersonic wave motor for fast and nearly silent autofocus, and Zeiss T coating it superbly sharp even wide open.

Roger's Take

I spent a day with this lens and came back quite impressed. It’s not perfect, so let’s get the downers out of the way: Like for most wide zooms on full frame cameras, there’s some noticeable corner softness, and there’s also a bit more chromatic aberration than I see on Canon and Nikon’s pro level wide zooms. It’s easily corrected in Photoshop, but I would suggest shooting images in raw, so you can get the very best correction.

With those two minor notations out of the way, I have nothing left but the positives: It’s sharp throughout the zoom range, very nice colors and contrast, autofocuses with the quickness of a rattlesnake and the persistence of a bulldog. Overall, a world-class wide angle zoom, the best in Sony’s lineup.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
