Vario-Tessar T* E 16–70mm F4 ZA OSS (SEL1670Z)

Introducing the SEL1670Z: your go-to lens for any occasion. A lightweight, versatile mid-range zoom, it combines renowned ZEISS optical performance with a constant F4 aperture, maximising detail across the focal range.

Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.

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. The SEL1670Z features the acclaimed Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, which minimises flare and ghosting to ensure crisp, clean image quality.
Advanced aspherical lens technology

Compact design, uncompromising quality
Advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) technology not only optimises image quality but also enables a significant reduction in overall lens size.
Circular aperture for smooth bokeh

Smooth defocusing
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
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass ensures superior contrast, resolution, and colour while advanced aspherical (AA) and aspherical lens elements minimise distortion.

Fast, agile focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the length of the lens remains constant, enabling easy handling, fast autofocusing, and a short minimum focusing distance. In addition, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate – an asset when using a polarizing filter.
