Sony announces FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G lens for hybrid users who capture both stills and video. Designed for E-mount camera systems, the US price of the lens is $1,200 and available for pre-order at BHphoto. Shipping of the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G (model SELP1635G) will start from June 2022.
The PZ 16-35mm F4 includes 13 elements across 12 groups. Among these elements are two advanced aspherical (AA) elements, an ED element, an aspherical element and an ED aspherical lens. It’s not a G Master lens, so Sony hasn’t included an extreme aspherical (XA) element.
There are six of what Sony calls ‘Extreme Dynamic (XD) linear motors,’ two driving focus, four powering the zoom. The lens has both a zoom ring and control lever for zooming, which will zoom in/out faster or slower depending on how far you’re moving the lever in either direction.
