Bring your subjects closer. Shoot beautiful scenery, action-packed sporting events and detailed close-ups with this wide-angle telephoto lens.

Get into the action. Designed to take advantage of APS-size CCD imagers like the Exmor sensor of the Sony a(alpha) DSLR-A700 camera, this amazingly compact premium zoom lens provides superior all-around performance. Its 35mm-equivalent range of 24mm wide-angle to 157.5mm telephoto is perfect for capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-ups.

Internal Focusing System - Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change -- creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn't alter its balance.

Sophisticated Multi-Element Design - 16 lens elements in 13 groups correct visual aberrations across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - ED Glass lens elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension.

Circular Aperture - Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

Comments about Sony Sony 16-105mm DT f/3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens:

Outstanding, consistent, reliable lens. Excellent range makes this a great choice for a walk-around lens. Sharp output is sure to please even picky photogs. Built like a tank, and 62mm filters are easy to find.

Advisory when using DT lenses with full-frame (35mm equivalent) DSLR cameras.
Sony α (alpha) lenses with the Digital Technology (DT) designation are ideal for use on APS-C size DSLR cameras and are not recommended for use with full frame DSLR camera bodies (such as the DSLR-A900). Although DT lenses can be used with full frame cameras, they can only realize a maximum of 11MP image size (when using the DSLR-A900), and are not guaranteed to provide accurate Auto Exposure performance.
I have test it in Micro mode with clean shots even it not a Micro lens it work well.

Comments about Sony Sony 16-105mm DT f/3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens:

This Lens is one that can be left on the camera for almost all purposes. I use it for fast action sports and applications where shooting in low light is my only choice. I'll admit it was a bit of a hit in the wallet but I hope to get years of use out of it.
