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.
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.
The lens that goes where you go
with a slim, compact design that retracts down to 29.9mm, it’s perfect for travel
the first E-mount lens with an electrically driven zoom, it has a smooth, silent operation – ideal for shooting video
Noise-free shots even in low light
