Description

Powered zoom for effortless control

Shooting stills or video, a powered zoom gives you maximum creative control. For added convenience, the Sony SEL PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS can be operated via a zoom rocker on selected NEX cameras.

Capture smooth, blur-free images

Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh

Smooth defocusing

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 minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.
