E 16mm F2.8 Wide Angle (SEL16F28)
The SEL16F28 combines slimline design with a wide 16mm coverage and large F2.8 max aperture. An ideal lens, whether shooting cramped interiors or majestic scenery.
Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
To optimise performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimise distortion and flatness of the image plane.
