Just Announced: Sony FE 16-35 F4 Lens and HVL-F32M Flash

Just Announced at Photokina today…


Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T* Lens

Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T* Lens $1,348 (Amazon | B&H) constant f/4 maximum aperture wide-angle zoom lens designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, can also be used with Sony APS mirrorless cameras. Features a circular aperture that, through the use of curved blades, keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed for smoother, more natural defocusing highlights. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to benefit shooting handheld in dim lighting.

Five aspherical elements, including one AA (advanced aspherical) element, and three ED elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range while also maintaining a compact form-factor. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating enhances contrast, clarity, and color reproduction by countering the effects of lens flare and ghosting. Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change when focusing. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient when using a polarizing filter

It joins the Sony FE 28-135 F4 G Power Zoom lens announced last Friday. (Amazon | Adorama | B&H)
