High resolution throughout the zoom range, even at f/2.8

Two AA (advanced aspherical) and two aspherical elements suppress aberration for outstanding corner-to-corner G Lens resolution, while three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements reduce colour bleeding to a minimum. Sony’s original Nano AR Coating adds superior resistance to flare and ghosting for a crisp contrast. Precise spherical aberration control and a 9-blade circular aperture contribute to smooth bokeh.

Compact, lightweight & bright

Optimised mechanical and optical design achieves a weight of just 494 grams in a compact, constant F2.8 16–55-mm (24–82.5 mm full-frame equiv.) zoom lens. This fine lens is ideal for everything from portraits to everyday snapshots, combining with compact E-mount bodies to form a highly mobile, manageable system for a wide range of photographic applications.

XD Linear Motor for fast, precise AF & tracking

The same type of advanced XD (extreme dynamic) linear motor that maximises focus performance in G Master series lenses is employed in this APS-C lens. The XD Linear Motor fully utilises the speed potential of the camera body, focusing on and tracking even fast-moving subjects with outstanding speed and precision. Operation is also quiet, allowing videographers to take advantage of the constant F2.8 aperture.

Professional control & reliability

A customisable focus hold button, AF/MF mode switch, and Linear Response MF add control versatility and precision that can help get the shot even in difficult, changing conditions. The front lens element is fluorine-coated to repel water and grime, and the lens is dust and moisture resistant* so that that it can be used with confidence in challenging outdoor environments.
