This is a 4K powered zoom lens to be used with a 35mm full frame format camera such as the α7S or a Super 35 format camcorder such as the PXW-FS7 in a compact lightweight package incorporating optical image stabilisation and wide angle zoom range.

The lack of an f/2.8 enables a compact zoom size to be possible.

Weighing 518g and measuring 78 x 98.5mm, this new wideangle zoom is fractionally larger in every dimension than the Sony Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS lens, which measures 73 x 94.5mm and weighs 426g. The 16-35mm follows the same style as the other Carl Zeiss FE lenses, with a minimal, industrial design that uses the DIN 1451 typeface.

The construction is everything you would expect of a Carl Zeiss lens, with a solid all-metal finish, including metal ribbed zoom and focusing rings. I found that the zoom barrel, and the focusing ring, have a good level of resistance, with a very smooth motion. Focusing is done electronically rather than mechanically. However, the glide of the focus-ring rotation and the gearing of the motor means that manually focusing is very precise and fluid enough for video capture.  Read more at https://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/reviews/lenses/sony-carl-zeiss-vario-tessar-t-fe-16-35mm-f4-za-oss-review#Xp5cgrdkT588jpHe.99

As with other lenses in this class, focus breathing and zoom image shift have been reduced to an absolute minimum, while aspherical elements and advanced multi-coating technology effectively suppress aberration. Quiet operation is also a priority, so an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system has been employed for precise, quiet zooming. Independent control rings for zoom, focus, and iris using physical stops are provided for the first time into an E-Mount an lens. Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization adds to the extraordinary performance of this outstanding lens which is supporting a constant F4.
