Sony FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G Lens Launched

The Lightest Compact Constant F4 Wide-Angle Power Zoom G Lens

Sony has introduced the all-new FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G lens (model SELP1635G) that is designed to deliver a wider, more powerful zoom with superior image quality, high-performance autofocus, and amplified operability to meet the changing needs of the best content creators.


The new lens is the world's lightest full-frame wide-angle power-zoom lens with a constant F4 aperture, thanks to Sony's extensive experience in lens design. The retractable lens is designed for content creators who demand high-quality, nuanced images with an emphasis on expression. It's also a fantastic option for stills, with stunning G Lens rendering, excellent AF performance, and easy-to-use power zoom in a very compact lens that's ideal for smaller camera bodies. The overall length of the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G remains constant while focusing and zooming, making it ideal for vlogging and movie production as well as remote capture and landscape photography.

Evolved Image Quality

In a tiny lens, the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G offers stunning resolution and attractive bokeh in a unique combination. There are two AA (advanced aspherical) components, one standard aspherical element, one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element, and one ED aspherical component in the optical path. Chromatic and spherical aberration are both reduced to provide outstanding image performance throughout the zoom range and 16-35 mm focal length range. AA elements are used in an advanced optical design to guarantee good close-up performance throughout the zoom range, with a minimum focusing distance of 0.28 meters at 16 mm and 0.24 meters at 35 mm. Furthermore, a properly-coated lens effectively eliminates flare and ghosting for clear, well-defined pictures. A circular aperture and carefully contoured spherical aberration work in tandem to create smooth, deep full-frame bokeh that may provide maximum atmosphere and visual impact.

High-Performance AF

The Sony FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G is the first Alpha lens to employ six of Sony's original XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors for both focus and zoom drive. The quick response and smooth, quiet operation of this system allow users more creative options. It is feasible to keep accurate focus while shooting stills at up to 30FPS.

When filming at frame rates of up to 120fps, 4K, or 8K movies, timely and accurate focusing is essential. Even fast-moving subjects are tracked effectively and quietly by the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G with α-series bodies. The combination of high-thrust XD Linear Motors, optimized optics, and responsive control add to its performance precision even further.

Imagery, Power Zoom And Operation Refined For Demanding Movie Applications

Sony has equipped the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G with the most advanced lens technology to minimize focus breathing and focus and axial shift when zooming to produce the highest quality pictures readily available. The latest lens technology is included to minimize focus breathing and focus and axial shift when zooming, ensuring that the best photos are taken effortlessly.

The FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G features a newly developed electronic power zoom mechanism with XD linear motor drive, which enables precise control and quick response. The super-slow constant speed is made easier with a zoom lever with adjustable zoom speed. Users can reduce camera shake when shooting handheld by limiting the length of time that they apply pressure to the zoom ring. Users can also modify the zoom ring direction to fit their shooting conditions.

The lens allows users to control zoom remotely using buttons and controls on compatible bodies or attachments. Furthermore, Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually, while an aperture ring makes manual aperture control quick, direct, and simple.

Superior Mobility, Control and Reliability

The FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G boasts a world-class design and technology, combining power zoom with compact, lightweight construction to provide exceptional focus, zoom, and aperture rings for mobile use. The FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G is the world's lightest F4 wide-angle power-zoom lens at 353grams.

For ideal balance and handling, the length of the lens never changes while focusing or zooming. This lens is an excellent choice for gimbal-mounted movie shooting since it offers consistent balance. While filming movies, the focus ring may be easily operated with a finger, and the adjacent focus and zoom rings are stepped so they can be readily discerned and operated.

More impressive features of the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G include an Iris Lock Switch that can be used to avoid the aperture ring from being unintentionally switched between the F4 - F22 settings, along with a customizable focus hold button for easy operation. Finally, to keep it clean and dependable for outdoor usage.


The FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G will be available in the Middle East and Africa from the end of April 2022.
