Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 630-879-1286 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70 mm F4 ZA OSS

Sony SEL1670Z

Features

  • Here's class-leading ZEISS® optics with the legendary T* coating in a mid-range zoom that is compact and convenient for a wide range of subjects. The 16 mm to 70 mm zoom range will cover most shooting situations, making this lens an ideal choice for day-to-day photography or moviemaking.
  • Four aspherical elements, including one AA element, combine with one ED glass element for breathtaking rendering. A linear motor achieves smooth, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills. The T* coating enhances performance even further by effectively suppressing reflections so that crisp, natural contrast is maintained.
  • A constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range means consistent exposure settings at any focal length as well as improved low-light capability. There's no need to worry about aperture-related exposure variations as you zoom, concentrating on the image rather than technical details.
  • Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld. Sharp, clear night scenes or indoor shots in dim lighting can be captured without the need to boost ISO sensitivity and risk increased noise.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
