Retractable lens with powered zoom
E PZ 16–50 mm F3.5–5.6 OSS (SELP1650)
Great for travel, this lightweight, retractable mid-range zoom collapses down to just 29.9 mm. It also features a power zoom for smooth, silent, effortless zooming.
Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.
Capture smooth, blur-free images
Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos during handheld shooting.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
Refined optical performance
Aspherical lens elements minimize distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and color fidelity.
Powered zoom for effortless control
Shooting stills or video, a powered zoom gives you maximum creative control. For added convenience, it can be operated via a zoom rocker on selected E-Mount cameras.
