Measuring just 3/16" (29.9mm) when fully retracted, the Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Pancake Zoom Lens for Sony E Mount Cameras is super compact and easy to carry so you can quickly whip out your camera and spontaneously grab shots as they occur. It's perfect for traveling and other scenarios that require a lightweight, compact camera and lens combo. It covers a 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent = 24-75mm) for flexible shooting, and is equipped with one ED (extra-low dispersion) and four aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact.
Compact and Lightweight Design
Despite a 3x magnification ratio covering 16 mm to 50 mm (24-75mm 35mm eq.), the SELP-1650 is thin and lightweight thanks to a retracting mechanism that reduces the lens to just 3/16” (29.9 mm). It truly enhances the portability of E-mount cameras, giving users the means to capture spontaneous moments when on trips with a light and compact camera/lens combination.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system provides a 4-stop (approx.) shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video.
POWER ZOOM For Smooth Zooming
The SELP-1650 is the first lens with an electrically driven zoom mechanism. As soon as the camera is powered on, the lens extends and is instantly ready for shooting. A dual-function control ring is used for both zooming and manual focus.
ED Glass and Aspherical Lens Elements
The SELP-1650 is equipped with one ED and four Aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact. The elements correct for curvature of field on the wide-angle side and spherical and chromatic aberration on the telephoto side for beautiful, accurate, high-contrast reproduction across the entire image.
