The compact lightweight Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA features a versatile 35mm focal length and outstanding overall performance of this Vario-Tessar T* lens make it an ideal match for compact 35mm full frame format E-mount bodies. Five Aspherical and one large Advanced Aspherical element help minimize aberration so that stunning contrast and resolution are maintained right out to the image edges at all apertures while 3 Extra Low Dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberration. The renowned T* lens coating delivers superior contrast and resolution. Key Features: Unmatched ZEISS T* (T-star) coating Coated optics were pioneered by ZEISS - and this superb lens features the ZEISS T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates lens flare internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces. The T* coating contributes to outstanding image quality with high contrast and uniformly excellent resolution right out to the image edges. Not simply applied to any lens - the T* symbol only appears on multi-element lenses in which the required performance has been achieved throughout the entire optical path therefore guaranteeing the highest quality. Circular Aperture When changing your aperture to defocus the background the light sources appear blurred. This bokeh effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocused points of light. Circular aperture overcomes this problem through the use of curved blades that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed. Smoother more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result. Aspherical lens elements Aspherical lens design dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Spherical aberration is a slight misalignment of the light rays projected on the image plane caused by differences in refraction in conventional spherical lenses which degrade image quality in large-aperture lenses. Specially shaped aspherical elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion. Well-designed aspherical elements often requires complex glass molding technology but can reduce the total number of elements required thus reducing overall size and weight. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass As focal lengths get longer lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration and as a result images suffer from lower contrast lower color quality and lower resolution. ED glass dramatically reduces chromatic aberration and provides superior contrast across the entire image even at large aperture settings. ASPHERICAL ELEMENTS ED ELEMENTS Internal focusing Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus so the overall length of the lens does not change when focusing. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also the filter thread at the front of the l

Such a beast of a lense. It looks okay with a crop sensor camera like the one that I use currently, but when you stick it on a full frame.. BOY IT LOOKS GOOD
