In the continued support that Sony is trying to create for their full frame E mount system, the company is announcing today their 16-35mm f4 lens. To complement the A7 series of cameras, this lens is moisture and dust resistant. This lens sports 12 elements in 10 groups with 5 aspherical elements and 3 ED glass elements. It also has a 7-blade aperture, with a minimum focusing at 0.28 meters–which means that that may be the only place where you actually really get any bokeh.
More interestingly, the lens incorporates Optical Steady Shot technology–which is nice for shooting video.
Coming in at $1,349 you of course shouldn’t expect it to be super affordable but it surely isn’t so badly priced. That’s about all the information that we have on the lens so far, but we’re surely looking forward to our review.
