Sony FE 24-70mm f4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* Lens (SEL2470Z)
This compact, multi-purpose Sony FE 24-70mm f4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* Lens bring renowned ZEISS resolution and contrast to a range of shooting situations – from studies of the natural world to portraits and landscapes. With an F4 maximum aperture across the zoom range and built-in image stabilisation, it also performs well in low-light conditions.
Crafted by ZEISS
Founded in 1846, ZEISS AG is a legend in the field of camera optics. Their lenses are renowned for exceptional clarity, brightness, resolution and contrast. This one features the acclaimed ZEISS T* coating, which subdues internal reflections to minimise flare and ghosting.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
Refined optical performance
Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.
Fast, agile focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.
Capture smooth, blur-free images
Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® T lens
The F4 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® T allows light to enter the lens for striking results. The unique T* multilayer lens coating gives you sharp, true-colour image reproduction – without flare or ‘ghosting’. The wide aperture also enables you to control foreground and background blur levels, so you can be more creative with your photos. F4 constant is especially good at telephoto range, and also when recording movies as well.
Advanced aspherical lens technology
Aspherical lens technology maximises portability without sacrificing imaging power. The lens combines five aspherical elements with one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to deliver high-precision shots and breathtaking rendering – without the bulky design usually associated with similar DSLR lenses.
Extra-low Dispersion glass element
Lenses constructed with conventional optical glass struggle with chromatic aberration as the focal length increases. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass counters these issues, delivering superior contrast and colour quality across the entire focal length – even at large aperture settings.
Optical Steady Shot image stabilisation
Optical Steady Shot keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, Optical SteadyShot ensures brilliant photographic results – even at high zooms.
7-blade circular aperture
The 7-blade circular makes it possible to achieve smoother, more natural defocusing in your images. Get creative with artistic blurring or ‘bokeh’ – and greater control over the depth of field.
Constant F4 maximum aperture
Shooting at a constant F4 aperture across the entire 24–70mm focal length, you’ll always be able to capture sharp, controlled images. At full zoom, you can lower your ISO setting and increase your shutter speed, so you can capture every second of the action without the worry of noise distortion.
