It is a is a Carl Zeiss branded lens featuring a Vario-Sonnar design. The optics of this lens have been optimized for smaller APS-C image sensors used within these cameras.

This Sony 16-80mm lens feels relatively light,  too as far as lenses go and balances in at 15.7 oz (445g).

This lens is incredible well-made and has very tight tolerance on the exterior. This lens is also fairly light weight considering the f/3.5-4.5 aperture and 16-80mm focal range. The lens hood is included and fits perfect. When the lens mounts to the camera it is very comfortable and firmly locks into place. The zoom is very smooth and has a nice reducing  it, so when you’re aimed downward it doesn’t zoom out on you. The focus is also smooth and relatively quick, although it’s not SSM technology.

In addition to that the 16-80mm lens has anti-flare T* Coating that is supposed to help with flare. The aperture eye has 7 blades which results in gorgeous circular specular highlights, and silky smooth bokeh’s!! The Digital Technology (DT) designation means that this lens is ideal for use with APS-C size sensor cameras.
