Crop-frame Sony E-mount lens
Crop-Frame E-Mount. The Sony E 16-55mm f/2.8 G is designed for crop-frame Sony E-mount cameras, on which it provides a 24-82.5mm equivalent focal length.
Pro-Grade Wide-to-Portrait Zoom. The E 16-55mm f/2.8 G is a telephoto zoom that’s great for portraiture, wedding/event photography, and all-around general use. Its bright f/2.8 constant aperture lets you shoot in a range of lighting conditions while giving you excellent depth-of-field control. The rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps create smooth bokeh when you’re using selective-focus techniques.
XD Linear Motor Autofocus System. This system provides fast, nearly silent, and highly accurate autofocus performance that’s great for still and video use. A dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch help to tailor focusing to your shooting needs.
Advanced Optics. The E 16-55mm f/2.8 G’s twelve-group/seventeen-element design includes four aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, and to produce clear, high-contrast images. Nikon has applied Nano Crystal and Super Integrated coatings to the elements to combat ghosting and lens flare, even when you’re working in bright or backlit conditions.
