Positioned as the workhorse lens for APS-C, the Sony E 16-55mm f/2.8 G is a professional-grade wide-to-portrait length zoom featuring a bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture.

Wide Angle to Portrait Zoom

Wide-to-portrait-length 16-55mm zoom is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirror less cameras and provides a 24-82.5mm equivalent focal length range. Its bright f/2.8 constant aperture lets you shoot in a range of lighting conditions while giving you excellent depth-of- field control.

Advanced Optics

The E 16-55mm f/2.8 G’s twelve-group/seventeen-element design incorporates four aspherical elements and Three extra-low dispersion elements to minimize distortion, spherical and chromatic aberrations and to produce clear, high-contrast images. A Nano AR Coating has been applied to minimize surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions. Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Linear Motor System

Benefitting the optics, this lens also sports an XD Linear Motor system that provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance great for still and video use. It also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control. A dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch help to tailor focusing to your shooting needs.

Quality Build
The lens has a dust- and moisture-sealed design, along with a fluorine coating that better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
