The Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Vario-Sonnar T* Lens is a fast and versatile wide-angle to short telephoto zoom that is designed for Sony and Minolta full-frame or APS-C A-Mount cameras. Users of compatible 35mm full-frame cameras can obtain an 84 to 34Â° angle of view, making this lens suitable for landscape, street, travel, portrait, or sports photography. On a Sony or Minolta APS-C A-Mount camera, this lens's angle of view becomes equivalent to that of a 36-105mm lens on a full-frame 35mm film camera or DSLR. When on an APS-C A-Mount camera, this lens's wide angle of view becomes narrowed, while its telephoto capabilities are enhanced. Two extra-low dispersion and two aspherical elements are incorporated within the lens to maintain low distortion and corner sharpness while minimizing chromatic aberrations. Carl Zeiss T* (T-Star) lens coatings provide high contrast and uniform image resolution while helping to eliminate lens flare, internal reflection, and light scattering. Silent Super Sonic Wave autofocus motor and aperture mechanisms contribute to fast lens operation and the suppression of unwanted noise when capturing still photos as well as video clips. This lens's durable dust and weather-resistant design contributes to the versatility of Sony camera bodies that also feature weather-resistant components, allowing you to photograph in places or at times where exposure to the elements could impact camera system performance. When used with a Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter or a Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter with Translucent Mirror Technology that helps maintain autofocus performance, full-frame or APS-C Sony E-Mount cameras can also utilize this lens.
