Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Sony SAL-1680Z 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Carl Zeiss DT Zoom Lens is ultimate all-in-one zoom lens designed specifically for DSLR imaging. It's the first professional-grade 5X zoom lens specifically designed for APS-size CCD image sensors providing incredible precision in a single compact, easy-to-carry lens that carries you from 24mm wide-angle to 120mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). Advanced Carl Zeiss optical design and anti-flare T* Coating make this one of the most valued lenses in the world of digital photography.
5x Zoom Range - Smaller and lighter, it’s the only 5X zoom lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in the Sony ± (alpha) DSLR cameras.
Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements - Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improve picture quality across the entire zoom range.
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.
Auto Clutch - In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- and in manual focusing, a wider focus ring provides a solid, hands-on feel.
