Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM G-Master Lens in Detail

Explore the world in wide-angle detail

G Master performance in a wide-angle F2.8 16-35mm zoom offers a wealth of opportunities to capture subjects in creative new ways. No matter what zoom setting or focus distance you shoot at, this lens delivers consistently superb resolution from corner-to-corner, with stunning background bokeh when required. A compact, lightweight design makes it manageable for active shooting.

Fast, high-resolution F2.8 16-35mm zoom

The first wide-angle G Master zoom lens offers performance that will take full advantage of the high-resolution potential of the latest and future camera bodies. The most advanced Sony optical and mechanical technologies come together to deliver extraaordinary rendering and clarity.

High corner-to-corner resolution

Uncompromised optical design achieves extremely high resolution and contrast. Landscapes, architecture, interiors, and other expansive subjects are captured with outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness. Aspherical elements minimize distortion, while ED (extraa-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively control chromatic aberration.

Clarity and contrast in any light

Sony's original Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Freedom from flare over a wide range of incident light angles provides greater framing and composing flexibility, particularly at wide-angle focal lengths. 

Gorgeous background bokeh

Shooting up close at F2.8 can produce some extraaordinary background bokeh. Use this capability to shoot portraits, for example, with dynamic, painterly backgrounds consisting of smooth, expressive bokeh that makes the subject stand out clearly.

Resolution and bokeh raised to new heights

This lens features two Sony XA (extreme aspherical) elements with 0.01 micron surface precision. Distortion that tends to occur in wide-angle zoom lenses is meticulously controlled, as are astigmatism and field curvature.  Unattractive onion-ring bokeh is effectively suppressed by XA (extreme aspherical) elements so that smooth, beautiful bokeh is achieved in out-of-focus areas.

Optimum resolution at any focal length

Consistently high resolution is achieved from infinity to the closest focusing distance. This lens employs a floating focus mechanism with two independently driven lens groups. This system helps to reduce all types of aberration to minimum levels and thereby maintain sharp, high-resolution rendering from infinity focus for landscapes, for example, all the way down to close focus for portraits and similar subjects.

Fast, precise autofocus

Two addSSM (Direct Drive SSM) systems employing original Sony piezoelectric motors directly drive two focus groups in a floating focus configuration. The focus groups are positioned with high precision for the highest possible focus accuracy. addSSM is quiet too, making it ideal for shooting movies as well as stills.

Light and compact for high mobility

Class-leading size and weight reductions have been achieved while maintaining outstanding optical performance. This lens is an ideal match for compact E-mount bodies, providing a portable, manageable system that's easy to take along on hiking or mountaineering photo excursions.

11 blades enhance bokeh beauty

Sony's original 11-blade circular aperture contributes to even greater bokeh quality. Design and materials have been revised to maintain a round shape, and strict circularity standards are applied to ensure that the full beauty of the lens's bokeh is achieved without compromise.

Smooth, versatile operation

A focus hold button, manual focus ring, AF/MF switch, and other controls provide versatile fingertip operation. The focus hold button can be customized via a body menu that allows a variety of functions to be assigned to the button to match the user's needs.

Fluorine coated front element

The lens's front element features a fluorine coating that helps to prevent dirt and fingerprints from sticking, and make it easier to wipe dirt and fingerprints away if they do become attached to the lens surface.

High reliability in harsh conditions

The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant for extraa protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.

Looking to sell your Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Wide Angle Zoom Lens?

Our Verdict

Joining the fast-growing and highly acclaimed of Sony G-Master lenses, this is the fastest wide-angle zoom lens available for the Sony E-mount range of camera s - and will certainly have been built with the exceptional Sony a9 Mirrorless camera which was announced just weeks before.

Whilst not the "all-round" zoom lens, like the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM G-Master, you'd expect to see a 16-35mm in the hands of somebody requiring pictures in particular environments - although the focal length does lend itself to a wide enough variety - including portraiture and more akin to landscape and architectural photography.

This features the exceptional G Master build and optical quality, with the largest XA element of its kind housed within.

Those arguing that the Sony E-Mount does not have a strong lens line-up are rather quickly being silenced by the fact that Sony are constantly adding strength to their lens family - with the ultra-wide angle Sony FE 12-24mm F/4 G Ultra-Wide Angle Lens announced at the same time.
