  • Overview

    The world’s smallest, lightest F2.8 wide-angle zoom

    The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II delivers dynamic wide-angle perspectives with extraordinary resolution and bokeh while maximizing the speed and performance of advanced camera bodies. Unequalled AF performance provides significant advantages for stills and movies in a versatile lens that is also the smallest and lightest of its kind.

    Breathtaking G Master resolution

    High spatial resolution results in detailed rendering right out to the image edges throughout the 16-35 mm zoom range, even with the lens wide open. Five aspherical elements include three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, and aberration is effectively controlled for an outstanding blend of high resolution and gorgeous bokeh

    Extraordinary resolution and bokeh

    Smooth, beautiful bokeh is made possible by a large F2.8 maximum aperture, innovative optical design, and an advanced 11-blade aperture unit. The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II also offers outstanding close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.22 m (0.73 ft) throughout the zoom range and maximum magnification of 0.32x. Get close for dynamic perspectives while deep bokeh adds extra expressive capability.

    Refined for outstanding movie imagery

    Reduced focus breathing, focus shift, and axis shift when zooming contribute to smooth movie imagery, while XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced aperture unit reduce noise and vibration. A center of gravity that changes very little contributes to agile, stable maneuverability when shooting handheld, and eliminates the need for readjustment after changing the zoom setting when using a gimbal.

    AF that is smooth, precise, quiet, and lightning fast

    The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II uses a floating focus mechanism that includes four original XD Linear Motors and precise lens control for up to approx. 2x higher AF speed. Continuous shooting at up to 30 fps is possible with Sony’s α1 body. It reliably acquires focus and smoothly tracks subjects, easily achieving the critical focus required for slow motion and 4K/8K movies.

    The world’s smallest and lightest in its class

    Even though it is the smallest and lightest F2.8 16-35 mm zoom in the world, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II delivers extraordinary imaging quality thanks to XA elements and Super ED glass (extra-low dispersion) in an advanced optical design. Lightweight high-thrust XD Linear Motors further contribute to a low overall weight of just 547 grams (19.3 oz.). That’s about 20% lighter than the E 16-35mm F2.8 GM. Overall length is a compact 111.5 mm(4-1/2 in.).

    Professional control and reliability

    A click ON/OFF switch and lock switch offer flexible aperture control, while two focus hold buttons provide convenient access for horizontal or vertical shooting. One function can be assigned to the focus hold buttons from the body menus. All seams feature structural sealing, buttons and switches are fitted with silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount for protection against dust and moisture.

Gorgeous circular bokeh can add extra appeal and expressive impact to a wide range of images.

    Revealing close-up performance

    Revealing close-up performance

    The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II offers outstanding close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.22 meters (0.73 ft) throughout the zoom range and a maximum magnification of 0.32x. This makes it possible to get close for dynamic perspectives while deep bokeh adds extra expressive capability.

    Clarity with minimal flare and ghosting

    Clarity with minimal flare and ghosting

    Flare and ghosting can occur when the sun or other strong light source is in the frame. Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II produces a uniform anti-reflection coating on lens surfaces, effectively subduing flare and ghosting in tricky lighting conditions. Internal reflections that can reduce clarity are also suppressed.

    Designed for refined movie imagery

    Designed for refined movie imagery

    The latest lens technology reduces focus breathing, focus shift, and axis shift when zooming. Image movement and angle of view variations are minimized for smooth movie imagery without distractions. XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced aperture unit also reduce noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.

    With a floating focus mechanism that includes four XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and precise lens control, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II achieves up to approximately 2x higher AF speed High-speed continuous shooting at up to 30 fps is possible with Sony’s α1 body.

    Smooth, quiet AF for movies

    Smooth, quiet AF for movies

    Focus is especially critical when shooting slow motion or 4K/8K movies. The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II works with α-series bodies to reliably acquire focus and track even fast-moving subjects thanks to four XD Linear Motors and advanced control technology that achieve extraordinarily smooth, quiet, precise AF performance for movie shooting.

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills or movies.

    Small, light, and versatile

    Small, light, and versatile

    Although the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is the world’s smallest, lightest F2.8 16-35 mm zoom, it delivers superb image quality with XA elements and Super ED glass in an advanced optical design. Lightweight XD Linear Motors further contribute to a low weight of just 547 grams (19.3 oz.); 20% lighter than the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM. Overall length is just 111.5 mm(4-1/2 in.).

    Versatile hands-on aperture control

    Versatile hands-on aperture control

    The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II features both a click ON/OFF switch and an iris lock switch for quick, flexible aperture control. The aperture ring click stops can be turned ON to provide tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for seamless, silent aperture control when shooting movies.

    Customisable focus hold buttons

    Customisable focus hold buttons

    Two customisable focus hold buttons are provided for easy access and convenient control when shooting in horizontal or vertical orientation. One function can be assigned to the focus hold buttons from the body menus.

    Dust and moisture resistant design

    Dust and moisture resistant design

    The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II offers improved dust and moisture resistance. All seams feature structural sealing, buttons and switches are fitted with silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount. All of these refinements work together to minimize the possibility of dust and moisture incursion in challenging outdoor environments.

    Fluorine front element coating

    Fluorine front element coating

    The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

    Compact lens hood design

    Compact lens hood design

    While effectively blocking unwanted light, the new lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is smaller than the lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM, making it less obtrusive in use or when stored in a camera bag.

      Dust and moisture resistant design

      Dust and moisture resistant design

      The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II offers improved dust and moisture resistance. All seams feature structural sealing, buttons and switches are fitted with silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount. All of these refinements work together to minimize the possibility of dust and moisture incursion in challenging outdoor environments.

      Fluorine front element coating

      Fluorine front element coating

      The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

      Compact lens hood design

      Compact lens hood design

      While effectively blocking unwanted light, the new lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II is smaller than the lens hood supplied with the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM, making it less obtrusive in use or when stored in a camera bag.
