Retractable lens with powered zoom

E PZ 16–50mm F3.5–5.6 OSS (SELP1650)

Great for travel, this lightweight, retractable mid-range zoom collapses down to just 29.9mm. It also features a power zoom for smooth, silent, effortless zooming.

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

Powered zoom for effortless control

Shooting stills or video, a powered zoom gives you maximum creative control. For added convenience, it can be operated via a zoom rocker on selected NEX cameras.

Capture smooth, blur-free images

Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.

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

Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.
