The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II delivers dynamic wide-angle perspectives with extraordinary resolution and bokeh while maximizing the speed and performance of advanced camera bodies. Unequalled AF performance provides significant advantages for stills and movies in a versatile lens that is also the smallest and lightest of it's kind.
High spatial resolution results in detailed rendering right out to the image edges throughout the 16-35 mm zoom range, even with the lens wide open. Five aspherical elements include three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, and aberration is effectively controlled for an outstanding blend of high resolution and gorgeous bokeh.
Smooth, beautiful bokeh is made possible by a large F2.8 maximum aperture, innovative optical design, and an advanced 11-blade aperture unit. The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II also offers outstanding close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.22 m (0.73 ft) throughout the zoom range and maximum magnification of 0.32x. Get close for dynamic perspectives while deep bokeh adds extra expressive capability.
Reduced focus breathing, focus shift, and axis shift when zooming contribute to smooth movie imagery, while XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced aperture unit reduce noise and vibration. A center of gravity that changes very little contributes to agile, stable maneuverability when shooting handheld, and eliminates the need for readjustment after changing the zoom setting when using a gimbal.
The FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II uses a floating focus mechanism that includes four original XD Linear Motors and precise lens control for up to approx. 2x higher AF speed. Continuous shooting at up to 30 fps is possible with Sony’s α1 body. It reliably acquires focus and smoothly tracks subjects, easily achieving the critical focus required for slow motion and 4K/8K movies.
Even though it is the smallest and lightest F2.8 16-35 mm zoom in the world, the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM II delivers extraordinary imaging quality thanks to XA elements and Super ED glass (extra-low dispersion) in an advanced optical design. Lightweight high-thrust XD Linear Motors further contribute to a low overall weight of just 547 grams (19.3 oz.). That’s about 20% lighter than the E 16-35mm F2.8 GM. Overall length is a compact 111.5 mm(4-1/2 in.).
A click ON/OFF switch and lock switch offer flexible aperture control, while two focus hold buttons provide convenient access for horizontal or vertical shooting. One function can be assigned to the focus hold buttons from the body menus. All seams feature structural sealing, buttons and switches are fitted with silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount for protection against dust and moisture.
