The Sony SAL-1680Z 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Carl Zeiss DT Zoom Lens is ultimate all-in-one zoom lens designed specifically for DSLR imaging. It’s the first professional-grade 5X zoom lens specifically designed for APS-size CCD image sensors providing incredible precision in a single compact easy-to-carry lens that carries you from 24mm wide-angle to 120mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). Advanced Carl Zeiss optical design and anti-flare T* Coating make this one of the most valued lenses in the world of digital photography.
- 5x Zoom Range – Smaller and lighter it’s the only 5X zoom lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony ± (alpha) DSLR cameras.
- Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements – Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improve picture quality across the entire zoom range.
- Circular Aperture – Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
- Auto Clutch – In auto-focus mode the manual focus ring does not rotate — and in manual focusing a wider focus ring provides a solid hands-on feel.
