A wide, pancake-style prime lens for Sony E-mount
Introducing the Sony 16mm f2.8 for the E-Mount, a lens so tiny it can easily fit in your shirt pocket and will comfortably fit in a small section of your gadget bag, ready to join the rest of your Sony kit. The 16mm focal length provides an equivalent of 24mm when mounted on APS-C E-Mount cameras, a popular field of view for landscape, scenery, street and architecture photographers, and one that many use for much of their travel and walkabout shots.
Your new favourite companion - ready to go anywhere with you
Designed to live on the front of your camera, the Sony 16mm is just over 2cm long and weighs only 70 grams, helping to keep your kit as compact as possible so you will have it hanging comfortably around your neck for longer periods. This increase in time spent with your camera gear will find you shooting in different more difficult conditions, something that this pancake lens is more than ready for. A large f2.8 maximum aperture enables you to handle the darker environments that occur indoors or out after sundown, letting in plenty of light and subsequently producing sharp photos.
Modern camera users are not purely interested in still photography, but also like to dabble in the moving image, something that Sony has been very accommodating of with their cameras featuring Video shooting of high quality. To further enhance this experience, this 16mm lens has an internal stepping motor, which helps accurate autofocus to be attained quickly, quietly and smoothly. These characteristics ensure that your subjects will be sharp and clear during playback and your audio will not be full of annoying focusing sounds.
- Closest Focus: 0.24m
- Compatible with APS-C format Sony E-mount cameras
