Sony SEL2470Z Vario-Tessar T FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Telephoto Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

This compact, multi-purpose 24–70mm zoom lens bring renowned Carl Zeiss resolution and contrast to a range of shooting situations – from studies of the natural world to portraits and landscapes. With an F4 maximum aperture across the zoom range and built-in image stabilisation, it also performs well in low-light conditions.

Smooth defocusing
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Less distortion
Aspherical lens elements minimise distortion while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution, and colour fidelity.

Internal focusing
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn’t move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response, and reduced minimum focusing distances.

Optical SteadyShot
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.
