Key Features

Breathtaking G Master resolution

Breathtaking G Master resolution

High spatial resolution results in detailed rendering of dynamic wide-angle scenes right out to the image edges throughout the 16-35 mm zoom range, even with the lens wide open. Five aspherical elements include three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, and aberration is controlled for a superb blend of high resolution and gorgeous bokeh.

Extraordinary resolution and bokeh

Extraordinary resolution and bokeh

Smooth, beautiful bokeh that can add depth to this remarkable lens's outstanding resolution is made possible by a large F2.8 maximum aperture, innovative optical design, and an advanced 11-blade aperture unit. Gorgeous circular bokeh can add extra appeal and expressive impact to a wide range of images.

Revealing close-up performance

Revealing close-up performance

The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II offers outstanding close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.22 meters (0.73 ft) throughout the zoom range and a maximum magnification of 0.32x. This makes it possible to get close for dynamic perspectives while deep bokeh adds extra expressive capability.

Clarity with minimal flare and ghosting

Clarity with minimal flare and ghosting

Flare and ghosting can occur when the sun or other strong light source is in the frame. Sony's original Nano AR Coating II produces a uniform anti-reflection coating on lens surfaces, effectively subduing flare and ghosting in tricky lighting conditions. Internal reflections that can reduce clarity are also suppressed.

Designed for refined movie imagery

Designed for refined movie imagery

The latest lens technology reduces focus breathing, focus shift, and axis shift when zooming. Image movement and angle of view variations are minimized for smooth movie imagery without distractions. XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced aperture unit also reduce noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.

Perfectly balanced for movies

Perfectly balanced for movies

In addition to being lightweight, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II has been designed for ideal balance with minimal extension when zooming. A center of gravity that changes very little contributes to agile, stable maneuverability when shooting handheld, and eliminates the need for readjustment after changing the zoom setting when using a gimbal.

AF that is precise and fast

AF that is precise and fast

With a floating focus mechanism that includes four XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and precise lens control, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II achieves up to approximately 2x higher AF speed High-speed continuous shooting at up to 30 fps is possible with Sony's a1 body.

Fluorine front element coating

Fluorine front element coating

The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

Compact lens hood design

Compact lens hood design

While effectively blocking unwanted light, the new lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is smaller than the lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM, making it less obtrusive in use or when stored in a camera bag.

Versatile hands-on aperture control

Versatile hands-on aperture control

The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II features both a click ON/OFF switch and an iris lock switch for quick, flexible aperture control. The aperture ring click stops can be turned ON to provide tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for seamless, silent aperture control when shooting movies.

Customisable focus hold buttons

Customisable focus hold buttons

Two customisable focus hold buttons are provided for easy access and convenient control when shooting in horizontal or vertical orientation. One function can be assigned to the focus hold buttons from the body menus.

Dust and moisture resistant design

Dust and moisture resistant design

The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II offers improved dust and moisture resistance. All seams feature structural sealing, buttons and switches are fitted with silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount. All of these refinements work together to minimize the possibility of dust and moisture incursion in challenging outdoor environments.

Smooth, quiet AF for movies

Smooth, quiet AF for movies

Focus is especially critical when shooting slow motion or 4K/8K movies. The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II works with a-series bodies to reliably acquire focus and track even fast-moving subjects thanks to four XD Linear Motors and advanced control technology that achieve extraordinarily smooth, quiet, precise AF performance for movie shooting.

Natural, linear manual focus response

Natural, linear manual focus response

Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills or movies.

Small, light, and versatile

Small, light, and versatile

Although the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is the world's smallest, lightest F2.8 16-35 mm zoom, it delivers superb image quality with XA elements and Super ED glass in an advanced optical design. Lightweight XD Linear Motors further contribute to a low weight of just 547 grams (19.3 oz.); 20% lighter than the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM. Overall length is just 111.5 mm(4-1/2 in.).
