The Sony FE 16-25mm f/2.8 G is a full-frame wide-angle zoom designed for Sony E-mount cameras. Key features include:

  • Versatile, fast, and lightweight wide-angle zoom

  • Great for landscape, travel, and close-up applications

  • Advanced optical formula for extremely sharp images

  • Fast, nearly silent, and highly accurate autofocus

Full-Frame E-Mount. The Sony FE 16-25mm f/2.8 G is designed to cover the full-frame sensors on Sony E-mount cameras. Since it’s an E-mount lens, it’s also fully compatible with their crop-frame APS-C cameras that feature an E-mount.

Versatile Wide-Angle Zoom. When used on a full-frame camera, this lens provides a versatile wide-angle zoom range that’s well-suited to landscape, travel, and close-up photography and videography, among other applications. The constant f/2.8 aperture and rounded eleven-blade diaphragm produce pleasing, artistic bokeh; give you excellent depth-of-field control; and make this lens a great choice for shooting in low light. The 7.1-inch minimum focusing distance lets you get in close. Using an APS-C camera? You’ll get a focal-length range equivalent to 24-37.5mm.

Not Just for Stills. The FE 16-25mm is capable of capturing high-definition video at high speeds. Specifically, its autofocus system, optical design, and precision controls work in tandem to give you 4K video at 120 fps or Full HD video at 240 fps when used with a capable camera, such as the Sony Alpha a9 III.

Advanced Optical Formula. The FE 16-25mm f/2.8 G’s thirteen-group/sixteen-element design includes three aspherical elements, one Extra-Low Dispersion aspherical element, and three Extra-Low dispersion elements to minimize color fringing and spherical and chromatic aberrations while producing images with outstanding resolution.

Dual-Motor Autofocus System. This lens uses two optimized linear autofocus motors and an ultra-precise control system to provide fast, highly accurate, and nearly silent focusing performance that’s great for still and video use. It can keep pace with cameras at up to 120 fps, and can easily acquire and maintain focus even during high frame-rate 4K video capture. A dedicated focus hold button and AF/MF switch help to tailor focusing to your shooting needs.

Gimbal and Drone Ready. The 16-25’s compact, lightweight build; minimal zoom extension; and stable center of gravity make it a great choice for gimbal and drone mounting.

Dedicated Control Rings. This lens includes focus, zoom, and aperture rings that allow you to make quick, precise adjustments while you’re shooting. You can enable clicks on the aperture ring for feedback while you’re shooting stills, or disable clicks for smooth, silent control while you’re capturing video.

Records Metadata. If you’re looking to use the 16-25mm for professional video, you’ll be happy to know that it embeds metadata in the video files you capture so that subsequent viewers can see the settings you used.

Durable, Weather-Resistant Build. The FE 16-25mm’s dust- and moisture-resistant sealing let you shoot in less-than-ideal conditions without worry, while its all-metal barrel gives it a solid feel. Its front element has a fluorine coating to help protect it from fingerprints and debris.
