A compact F2.8 zoom that is ready to go anywhere

With a 16-25 mm range1 that is ideal for scenery, cityscapes, selfies, travel, and general snapshots, this versatile wide-angle zoom delivers beautiful G Lens rendering and bokeh at all focal lengths in a remarkably compact, lightweight design. You get refined large-aperture wide-angle imaging performance for both stills and movies.

Outstanding G LensTM image quality with corner-to corner high resolution at all focal lengths
An advanced optical design using three ED (Extra low Dispersion) glass elements plus four aspherical elements that include one ED Aspherical glass element delivers high resolution throughout the 16-25 mm zoom range in a remarkably compact lens. Flare, ghosting, and color bleeding are effectively subdued for clear, detailed rendering.

Peak AF performance with two Linear Motors for precise, fast, quiet focus drive
Two specially optimized linear motors and a precision control system acquire focus on any subject with remarkable speed and accuracy. Tracking performance is excellent, easily keeping up with Sony's advanced α9 III camera at up to 120 fps. Precise, quiet focus is smoothly acquired and maintained even when shooting high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movies.

Excellent close-up performance of 17cm (6.72”) at 16mm manual focus
Painstaking optical optimization has achieved excellent close-up performance at all focal lengths. Maximum magnification is 0.2x (AF)/0.23x (MF) with a minimum focus distance of 0.18 m (0.59ft) (AF)/0.17 m (0.56ft) (MF) at the 16 mm end of the range and 0.24 m (AF) (0.79ft)/0.22 m (0.73ft) (MF) at the 25 mm end of the range for superb wide-angle close-up performance. Wide-angle coverage lets you shoot close while simultaneously capturing the subject's surroundings.

Compact, lightweight design for superb image quality and versatility in any situation
Even though it boasts an advanced optical design that includes four aspherical elements, one of which is ED Aspherical, this lens is only 74.8 mm in diameter by 91.4 mm in length (3 x 3-5/8 inch). Engineering plastics enhance durability while reducing weight to approximately 409 grams (14.5 oz), making this a low-stress F2.8 choice for long shooting sessions or low-light situations.

Deep bokeh makes the subject stand out
A maximum aperture that remains constant at F2.8 throughout the zoom range, state-of-the-art optical design, and an 11-blade circular aperture unit all work in harmony to deliver the smooth, deep bokeh that is a hallmark of Sony’s G Lens line-up. Exquisite bokeh brings subjects to the fore.

F2.8 in a mobile zoom is great for movies
Wide angles, F2.8 in a compact, lightweight zoom that can be easily handheld, and quiet AF can be significant advantages for movies. Minimal zoom extension and center of gravity shift make gimbal or drone mounting easy too. And combined with in-body Active Mode stabilization3 it can deliver stable handheld footage at wide angles even while walking. It also supports body breathing compensation4 and metadata recording.

Circular aperture with 11-blade iris for naturally rendered bokeh
The deep, soft bokeh available with full-frame image sensors is further enhanced by a 11-blade circular aperture and optimally tuned spherical aberration. All of this supports the creation of impressive, memorable imagery.
