Although only an incremental upgrade over the original Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM lens, this second edition optic proves to be very impressive. Build quality and general operation are first class, as is the speed and accuracy of the internal autofocus motor.

Shot this lens with my new A77ii at Antelope Canyon and I love the IQ. Very solid build, which is what I expect from Zeiss. This will become my standard landscape lens. Next is the 24-70mm!
