High Resolution Sharp Optics
The SELP1635G lens is an excellent full frame lens for content creation, vlogging, videography, and stills photography. Sharpness and resolution are consistent across the image thanks to the inclusion of an optical design with one ED (Extra Low Dispersion), one Super ED, and one ED aspherical element. Together these help correct chromatic aberrations and other artefacts with excellent results.
A 7-bladed aperture is included with constant f/4 throughout the zoom, which renders smooth out of focus areas with defocus effects, desirable when isolating the subject from the background.
Fast, Precise Autofocus
Four of Sony’s most effective focusing motors are included in the PZ 16-35mm f/4 G lens, in the form of XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors. These ensure you’ll never miss a shot due to mis-focusing while delivering faster and more accurate AF and for the first time, zooming capability than conventional lenses for both videography and photography.
Excels Indoors and Outside
With a dust and moisture resistant design, this wide angle zoom performs reliably in any situation. The front element on this Sony mirrorless lens features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easy to wipe clean from fingerprints or dust.

With the release of this Sony FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 G Lens, Sony is demonstrating further commitment to developing future-proof lenses packed with features for creators. Anyone who not only shoots stills but also vlogs, creates movies and works in video, gains a classic 16-35mm ultra wide to wide angle zoom with enhanced features, including plenty of video-specific barrel controls. When mounted on APS-C format cameras the equivalent focal length is 24-52.5mm resulting in a useful wide to standard zoom. The addition of Power Zoom in this lens enhances focusing options with smooth, precise and adjustability with highly desirable results. Sony also included four of their Extreme Dynamic motors, typically reserved for high-end lenses of this nature, ensuring you’ll be able to capture fast focus on any subjects.
Naturally the lens is capable both indoors and outside with dust, moisture and weather resistance, along with a front element fluorine coating for easy maintenance. Results you can achieve are noticeably sharp demonstrating high resolving power, rendering fine detail and you can capture smooth background blur. Whilst the 16-35mm f/2.8 GM may appeal more to photographers, the FE C 16-35mm T3.1 cine lens for pure videographers, this extremely competent PZ 16-35mm f/4 G falls somewhere in the middle. If you’re involved with both stills and video it makes for an irresistible option with superb results which are sure to impress.
