The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24–70 mm F2.8 zoom has been refined for even better performance. This lens is widely regarded as being more like a prime lens than a zoom in terms of image quality.
Versatile Focal Range
Its 24-70mm full-frame zoom offers a versatile wide angle focal length on both Sony A-Mount full-frame cameras and APS-C cameras. On Sony A-Mount APS-C cameras, this lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 36-105mm.
Fast f/2.8 Aperture
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also aids in selective focus control.
Quality Lens Construction
Two aspherical elements help to maintain low distortion and corner sharpness, while two extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations.
Zeiss T* Lens Coating
Carl Zeiss T* (T-Star) coatings provide high contrast and uniform image resolution while helping to eliminate lens flare, internal reflection, and light scattering.
Lens processing on the Sony 24-70mm f2.8 ZA SSM II (SAL2470Z2) has also been revised for faster subject tracking and more accurate autofocus while its external construction features dust and moisture resistant characteristics.
