NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 15, 2014) - B&H Photo is proud to announce the official release of the Sony Vario-Tessar T* 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS lens, XLR-K2M XLR box and microphone, HVL-F32M flash, and new Alpha Accessories. This new Zeiss-designed lens features image stabilization, Zeiss T* coatings, and other features designed for full-frame E-mount applications. The accessory lineup includes a wireless remote and receiver, and a system bag.

Vario-Tessar T* 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens

Sony continues to expand its Alpha camera-lens family with an all-new Zeiss-designed Vario-Tessar T* 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS wide-angle zoom lens.

The new lens features a dust- and moisture-resistant design and is designed to cover wide-angle zoom needs. It is designed for full-frame cameras but can also be used on APS-C E-mount cameras, as well, with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-52.5mm. The constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and is especially beneficial when working in low-light conditions. Also helping the photographer in dim light is the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which is designed to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops.

This new lens incorporates a generous five aspherical elements, including a large diameter AA (advanced aspherical) element, and three ED (extra-low dispersion) elements to help reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to the lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting while providing enhanced contrast, clarity, and color fidelity.
