Sony introduces the FE 16-35mm f2.8 GM II Lens, a dynamic masterpiece that redefines wide-angle photography. This lens delivers unparalleled image quality and stunning bokeh while optimizing the speed and performance of advanced cameras.
The world’s smallest, lightest full-frame F2.8 wide-angle zoom
Unmatched AF performance provides significant advantages for both stills and movies, all packed into a versatile lens that stands as the smallest and lightest in its class.
Experience the world's smallest and lightest full-frame F2.8 wide-angle zoom, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II. Its extraordinary image quality is achieved through innovative XA elements and Super ED glass within an advanced optical design. This lens weighs in at just 19.3 oz. (547 g), approximately 20% lighter than the previous generation FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM, with an overall length of 4.5 in. (111.5 mm).
Extraordinary resolution and bokeh throughout the zoom range
Boasting breathtaking G Master image quality across the entire frame, this lens's high spatial resolution ensures detailed rendering from edge to edge throughout the 16-35 mm zoom range, even at wide-open apertures. Its advanced design incorporates five aspherical elements, including three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, effectively controlling aberrations for a seamless blend of high resolution and stunning bokeh.
Experience extraordinary resolution and bokeh throughout the zoom range. The large F2.8 maximum aperture, coupled with innovative optics and an 11-blade aperture unit, creates smooth and captivating bokeh that adds depth to the lens's exceptional resolution.
Autofocus that is smooth, precise, quiet, and lightning fast
The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II features a smooth, precise, quiet, and lightning-fast autofocus system. A floating focus mechanism, bolstered by four original XD Linear Motors, delivers up to approximately 2x faster AF speed. This lens excels at continuous shooting, reaching up to 30 fps with Sony's α1 camera. It effortlessly maintains focus for slow-motion and 4K/8K movies.
Get up close and personal with outstanding close-up performance. With a minimum focusing distance of just 8.7” (0.22 m) throughout the zoom range and a maximum magnification of 0.32x, this lens opens the door to dynamic perspectives, enriched by a captivating bokeh.
Refined movie imagery with minimized focus breathing, focus and axial shift
This lens's cutting-edge technology minimizes focus breathing, focus shift, and axis shift while zooming, resulting in refined movie imagery. XD Linear Motors and an advanced aperture unit reduce noise and vibration, ensuring seamless movie recording.
Optimally balanced for filmmaking with gimbals
Perfectly balanced for filmmaking on gimbals, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is designed to maintain its balance even during zooming. Its minimal extension while zooming and consistent center of gravity contribute to agile and stable maneuverability, eliminating the need for readjustment when using a gimbal.
Nano AR coating II suppresses reflections, flare and ghosting
Say goodbye to reflections, flare, and ghosting with Nano AR coating II. This lens's original anti-reflection coating suppresses unwanted effects, even in tricky lighting conditions, ensuring clarity and visual excellence.
The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II provides flexible iris control with its dedicated aperture ring. The ring features a click ON/OFF switch and an iris lock switch for tactile or silent aperture adjustments, catering to both stills and movies.
Natural, linear and precise manual focus response
Experience natural, linear, and precise manual focus response with Linear Response MF. This feature ensures that focus changes directly correlate to focus ring adjustments, offering immediate and precise control for both stills and movies.
Enhance your shooting experience with two customizable focus hold buttons and an AF/MF switch. These features provide convenient access to functions and focus modes for seamless shooting in any orientation.
Dust and moisture resistant design with Front fluorine coating repels fingerprints, dust, water and oil
The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II boasts improved dust and moisture resistance. Its structural sealing, silicone rubber gaskets, and lens mount rubber ring work together to minimize dust and moisture incursion, making it ideal for challenging outdoor environments. Equipped with a fluorine front element coating, this lens repels water, oil, and contaminants, making it easy to maintain the lens's pristine surface.
Completing the package is a low-profile, petal-shaped ALC-SH177 lens hood that effectively blocks unwanted light. Smaller than its predecessor, it's a less obtrusive addition during use or storage.
