Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ OSS

Available Today

The Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ OSS is a compact standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount cameras and camcorders. It features an electronically-activated, retractable power zoom that’s activated when the camera is powered on; This allows the lens to come in at a mere 1.18" when not in use. The 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24-75mm makes it a great choice for a everyday, walk-around lens, and Sony’s built-in OSS stabilizer unit provides up to 4-stops of correction for camera shake.

The 16-50mm PZ uses one ED and four aspherical elements to minimize optical aberrations and provide high contrast images with little field curvature. The power zoom function has a zoom rocker switch on the side of the lens that allows zoom adjustment, but also features a dual-function control ring that’s used for both zooming and manual focus. When set to autofocus, it functions as a power zoom ring, allowing a more hands-on approach than the rocker switch. When set to manual focus, it provides accurate manual focus adjustment. This method works in both still and video shooting, making the 16-50mm PZ a great choice for any and all users.

Please Note: Does not offer full-frame sensor coverage.
