About the Sony 16-55mm APS-C zoom F2.8 G Lens

Fast F2.8 APS-C standard zoom E-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
Sony’s first 16-55 mm (24-82.5 mm full-frame equiv.) APS-C zoom with a constant F2.8 aperture is remarkably compact while offering performance befitting the G Lens series. The new optical design delivers an excellent corner-to-corner resolution, and beautiful bokeh is available when needed. It is compact, lightweight, and ideal for a wide range of subjects.

  • E-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
  • 24-82.5mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Four Aspherical Elements
  • Three Extra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Nano AR Coating and Fluorine Coating
  • XD Linear Motor AF System
  • Dust and Moisture Resistant
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

High resolution throughout the zoom range, even at F2.8
Two AA (advanced aspherical) and two aspherical elements suppress aberration for outstanding corner-to-corner G Lens resolution, while three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements reduce colour bleeding to a minimum. Sony’s original Nano AR Coating adds superior resistance to flare and ghosting for a crisp contrast. Precise spherical aberration control and a 9-blade circular aperture contribute to smooth bokeh.

Compact, lightweight, and bright
Optimised mechanical and optical design achieves a weight of just 494 grams (17.5 oz.) in a compact, constant F2.8 16-55 mm (24-82.5 mm full-frame equiv.) zoom lens. This fine lens is ideal for everything from portraits to everyday snapshots, combining with compact E-mount bodies to form a highly mobile, manageable system for a wide range of photographic applications.

The same type of advanced XD (eXtreme Dynamic) linear motor that maximises focus performance in G Master series lenses is employed in this APS-C lens. The XD Linear Motor fully utilises the speed potential of the camera body, focusing on and tracking even fast-moving subjects with outstanding speed and precision. Operation is also quiet, allowing videographers to take advantage of the constant F2.8 aperture.

Professional control and reliability
A customisable focus hold button, AF/MF mode switch, and Linear Response MF add control versatility and precision that can help get the shot even in difficult, changing conditions. The front lens element is fluorine-coated to repel water and grime, and the lens is dust and moisture resistant3 so that that it can be used with confidence in challenging outdoor environments.
