α Lenses

SEL1635Z ZEISS® wide-angle zoom lens Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS (E-mount)*8:

The SEL1635Z delivers extremely high resolution that enables the sharp depiction of objects, right to the very edge of the screen, and reduces distortion and field curvature to the absolute minimum. In addition, the use of ED (extra-low dispersion) glass allows chromatic aberration to be suppressed. The ZEISS T* (“T-star”) coating provides high-contrast representation capabilities to control reflected light on the lens surface. The excellent optical performance is well-suited to authentic landscape photography and makes full use of the wide angle lens.

SELP28135G motorized zoom G Lens FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS (E-mount)*8:

The world’s first*9 standard lens that supports a 35 mm full-frame sensor, while also equipped with a motorized zoom lens. It was designed to deliver optimized operability and optical performance for shooting high-quality video, such as 4K, and to be compatible with the α7 series, and the PXW-FS7 professional-use camcorder, which was announced at IBC 2014. Sony has incorporated SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) as the zoom lens drive, to facilitate smooth, quiet operation. This is the first time an α lens has been equipped with the three-faceted operational ring of “zoom-focus-aperture,” to enable a wide range of zoom speed controls and zoom direction reversal*10.

*8: This model was announced in Europe.

*9: As a lens for digital cameras with interchangeable lens systems. * Current at the time of this press release; as investigated by Sony.
