Compact, versatile mid-range zoom

DT 16–50mm F2.8 SSM (SAL1650)

The SAL1650 packs first-class optical performance and a versatile 16-50mm zoom range into a remarkably compact and lightweight lens.

APS-C A-mount

α6300 E-mount Camera with APS-C Sensor

Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony with SteadyShot™ INSIDE and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld, even zoomed-in.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh

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’.

Refined optical performance

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

Focus quickly and quietly

Internal focusing enables reduced minimum focusing distances and fast autofocus response while a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) ensures silent operation.
