Ultra compact and elegant, the SEL16F28 compliments your camera with a refined feel. The lens barrel is contracted from high-quality aluminum alloy which provides maximum durability in combination with the metal lens mount. Weighing in at only 2.5 oz (70g) it measures 62mm in diameter and 22.5mm thick.
The SEL16F28 performs equally as well when shooting video, thanks to an internal stepping motor and rear-focusing design. It has optimized video performance for smooth, quiet operation essential for high-quality movie capture.
An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid "hands-on" feel in manual focusing. Additionally, Direct Manual Focus (DMF) allows you to focus manually after AF lock-on without the need for any switching. This can be extremely useful in situations where AF can't lock onto the subject accurately, or when AF locks onto a point that does not match your intention. Electronic manual focus technology was originally developed for professional Sony camcorders to ensure smooth, precise focus control.
The SEL16F28 features seven aperture blades that form a near circle. This result in a pleasing defocused circular effect on the background of your image when the aperture is set wide open. The same type of internal stepping motor used for the focus drive is used for aperture actuation as well, that results in smooth, low-noise aperture operation ideally suited to movie shooting. (less)

DDSSM for quiet focus speed and precision - DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) precisely and quietly positions the heavy full-frame focus group for optimum focus even within the lens's shallowest depth of field. Ideal for movies as well as stills.
Internal focusing - Only the middle groups of the optical system are moved to achieve focusing, which leaves the total length of the lens intact. Benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you're using a polarizing filter.
Optimized for movies as well as stills - An aperture ring with switchable clicks can be turned ON for tactile feedback when shooting stills or OFF for smooth, quiet operation when shooting movies.
Unmatched T* (T-star) coating - The fact that lens coating technology -- vapor deposition of a thin, even coating on the lens surface to reduce reflections and maximize transmission -- was originally a Carl Zeiss patent is well known. The Carl Zeiss company also developed and proved the efficacy of multi-layer coatings for photographic lenses, and this is the technology that became the T* coating. (less)
