Sony FE 16-25mm F2.8 G Lens Launched


Balances the supreme expression capabilities of a wide-open F2.8 with a compact and lightweight design for excellent portability.

Sony has announced the latest addition to its full-frame E-mount lens line-up. FE 16-25mm F2.8 G is a large-aperture wide-angle zoom lens that maintains an F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range from 16 mm to 25 mm, combining supreme image quality with excellent portability due to its compact and lightweight design.

This new lens offers high-resolution performance, beautiful bokeh, and high-speed, high-precision, quiet, fast-tracking AF (autofocus). Weighing an impressively light 409 g, it is highly portable so you can easily enjoy everyday shooting that emphasizes the sense of perspective that can only be achieved with a wide-angle lens. It benefits from the same filter diameter, operability, and roughly the same size and weight as the “FE 24-50mm F2.8 G” announced in February 2024, and it is easy to use when shooting hand-held or when combined with a gimbal. The FE 16-25mm F2.8 G expands the range of photographic and video expression for creators in a variety of scenes such as astrophotography, landscapes, architecture, portraits, general snapshots, and selfies.
