Best UWA zoom lens of any make, including Nikon & Canon

  • Summary: I've shot with Nikon, Canon, Panasonic, and now Sony SLRs and Mirrorless camera.. My favorite camera is and will remain the Canon 5D Mark III. I've owned and used the famed Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G, and a number of Canon ultra wide angle lenses.

Killer lens

8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the SAL1635z on my Sony a7. I already owned a SAL2470z and wanted the wider shooting available with the 16-35. Both lenses are truly amazing for zoom lenses. There is virtually no noticeable distortion at with the 16-35 when at the full 16mm end.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: If you've been struggling to shoot video with your Sony DSLR, with knock off after markets or DT lenses, this is a dream come true. Granted its a financial dip, but you get what you pay for. Best lens in my bag and almost never comes off the camera these day.

User Review

Greg McCary, Photography Review

  • Summary: What can I say. I love Zeiss lenses. The is the brother of the 24-70mm. They are identical in size and weight. The 16-35mm is sharp and handles distortion very well. There is minimal flaring even in difficult lighting. I shot with the Minolta 17-35mm G lens for awhile but upgraded to the 16-35mm.
  • Pros: Sharp, fast focus, rugged build, smooth operation
  • Cons: heavy, cost
