Sony SEL1635GM.SYX (SEL1635GM/SYX, SEL1635GM-SYX, SEL1635GM_SYX) FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM Lens

G Master performance in a wide-angle F2.8 16-35mm zoom offers a wealth of opportunities to capture subjects in creative new ways. No matter what zoom setting or focus distance you shoot at, this lens delivers consistently superb resolution from corner-to-corner, with stunning background bokeh when required. A compact, lightweight design makes it manageable for active shooting.

The new FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM wide-angle zoom joins the acclaimed FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM and FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS to round out Sony’s line-up of F2.8 large aperture zoom lenses. Equipped with a variety of Sony’s most advanced lens technologies, it is the first wide-angle G Master model, making it ideal for an extensive variety of shooting situations - landscapes, architecture, close up portraits, sports, action and much more.  It is also exceptionally lightweight and compact, maximising portability and usability. The new lens features exceptional corner-to-corner sharpness, with an optical design that includes five aspherical elements, two of which are Sony’s original XA (extreme aspherical) elements that reduce aberration and deliver ultimate resolution throughout the entire zoom range and aperture range. The front XA element on the SEL1635GM is the largest XA element ever produced, ensuring optimum quality. There are also two ED (Extra low-Dispersion) glass elements that keep chromatic aberration to a minimum while maximising resolution, and Sony’s original Nano AR coating that suppresses internal reflections to ensure excellent image contrast and clarity.

The lens features a near circular aperture shape at all settings, and the combination of the aforementioned XA element with its 11 bladed aperture design produces images with sharply focused subjects and beautifully defocused backgrounds or “bokeh”.  It also has two DDSSMs (Direct Drive Super Sonic Wave Motors) that compose a floating focusing system and ensure that AF acquisition is speedy and quiet, making it an ideal choice for shooting still images as well as movies. The SEL1635GM is dust and moisture resistant , has a fluorine coating on the front lens that helps to both prevent dust or grease marks and remove them easily if they do become a trouble. There is also a customisable focus hold button and a hood release button.
