The Sony E16-50mm f3.5-5.6 OSS Lens is a retractable zoom lens perfect for travelling and other scenarios that require a lightweight, compact camera and lens combo. When fully retracted the E16-50mm lens is just 29.9mm, yet covers a wide 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent 24-75mm) for flexible shooting. The lens features one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and four aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly portable. The E16-50mm Power Zoom lens with manual override is the first Sony E-mount lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is turned on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting.
Compact and lightweight design Despite a 3x magnification ratio covering 16 mm to 50 mm (24-75mm 35mm eq.), the SELP-1650 is thin and lightweight thanks to a retracting mechanism that reduces the lens to just 3/16” (29.9 mm). It truly enhances the portability of E-mount cameras, giving users the means to capture spontaneous moments when on trips with a light and compact camera/lens combination. Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video. ED glass and Aspherical lens elements The SELP-1650 is equipped with one ED and four Aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact. The elements correct for curvature of field on the wide-angle side and spherical and chromatic aberration on the telephoto side for beautiful, accurate, high-contrast reproduction across the entire image. POWER ZOOM for smooth zooming The SELP-1650 is the first lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is powered on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting. A dual-function control ring is used for both zooming and manual focus.
