The Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS shows some distortion, which is typical for a lens of its type, but it's one of the best full-frame ultra-wide angle zooms that we've tested.

  • +

    Sharp throughout range. Optically stabilized design. Compact. Ultra-wide field of view. Dust and moisture resistant design.

  • -

    Distortion throughout zoom range. Pricey.

The Carl-Zeiss Vario Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 OSS ZA may not be able to convince completely but we actually like it quite a bit. It is capable of delivering sharp results at medium apertures.

This lens has surpassed my expectations. Beautiful color rendition. A must for landscapes. Using Capture 1 Express for Sony, it is the easiest lens I have dealt with to work challenging skies etc. Solidly built. The weight and balance with my A7II is just fine.

This lens is great for landscapes and I started to use it a lot for cinematography. The barrel distortion it has for some reason it complements the way I shoot videos and even the vignette that creates on both videos and photos is amazing. I like it. I like it a lot!!!

Took it on a recent trip to Italy and almost never took this lens off Sony A7S. Worked great to capture the architecture of Rome, Florence and Venice, and the landscapes of Positano, the Cinque Terra and Tuscany. Honestly, it made the trip.
