Product Description

Sony Carl Zeiss 16-70mm F4 Zoom Lens

Aesthetic and Construction

Like any other Sony Zeiss lens it is fully constructed out of metal and boasts a premium feel. Size wise the Sony 16-70mm F4 is tiny which his perfect for people looking for a discreet/small lens when travelling. The focus/zoom ring are placed super close to each other and non rubberise. For video users make sure you are careful which using the manual focus ring, because you may accidentally move the zoom ring too. The lens is not weather resistant so make sure to not use it in the rain.

Performance

We tested the Sony Zeiss 16-70mm F4 on the a6300 and we really enjoyed the autofocus performance even though it’s focus by wire. It was fast and reliable even in darker lighting conditions. At 16mm there is a bit of distortion but starts to go away when you start zooming past 24mm.

Final Thoughts

Overall if you are a owner of the Sony 6000 series the 16-70mm F4 is a brilliant lens for anyone who is looking for a versatile focal length for travel/everyday use. It boasts a solid quality that you would expect from a Zeiss optic lens although you’ll have to be mindful of its minor shortfalls in certain lighting conditions.
