A Professional-Category Bright Zoom Lens
The Sony SAL Carl Zeiss 16-35mm f/2.8 Vario-Sonnar T* ZA SSM Autofocus Lens, a professional-category bright zoom lens expressly created for Sony Alpha DSLR cameras (also mounts on Minolta Maxxum cameras). Carl Zeiss' optical layout and anti-flare T* coating applied to this lens help in reducing flare and increases contrast. When mounted a DSLR camera using an APS-C image sensor, the equivalent focal length is 24-52.5mm.
Its wide zoom range plus the f/2.8 constant aperture makes the lens just right for snapshots, landscapes, and indoor shooting. When used on cameras containing Super SteadyShot image stabilizer system of Sony alpha DSLR cameras, the lens provides excellent images even when hand-held using available light.
If you're using APS-C image sensor Sony cameras this lens too expensive as you would be shelling out a bunch of money on a full frame lens that's not all that wide and really heavy for small framed APS-C image sensor cameras.
