The Sony E16mm f2.8 Lens is a light, low-profile pancake lens that fits comfortably on Sony’s APS-C E-mount cameras, whilst maintaining the slimline look and slipping easily into your pocket. Great for everyday shooting, this 16mm lens contains high-quality optics including a 7 blade circular aperture for beautiful defocus effects and an aspheric surface for excellent contrast and sharpness. The lens features direct Manual Focus with a non-rotating focus ring during Auto Focus, ideal for precise, comfortable adjustments. The Sony 16mm f2.8 Lens is compatible with the optional VCL-ECU1 ultra-wide converter and optional VCL-ECF1 fisheye converter.
Light, low-profile lens for everyday use
The SEL16F28 combines slimline design with a wide 16mm coverage and large F2.8 max aperture. An ideal lens, whether shooting cramped interiors or majestic scenery.
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
To optimise performance, aspherical lens elements maintain high contrast (even with the aperture wide open) and minimise distortion and flatness of the image plane.
Fast, agile focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
