The SEL16F28 combines slimline design with a wide 16 mm coverage and large F2.8 max aperture. An ideal lens, whether shooting cramped interiors or majestic scenery.
Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
To optimize performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimize distortion and flatness of the image plane.
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
We revised this page to reflect the following correction: Sony E-mount cameras were incorrectly listed as having SteadyShot; that information was removed.
