Product Details:

Compact Design, All-Around Versatility - This superb 24-70mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of photo applications a lens you can put on and leave on, providing large-aperture brightness that?s easy to carry (35mm equivalent: 36-105mm).

Superior Large-Aperture Performance - Like other large-aperture Carl Zeiss lens designs, this f2.8 24-70mm zoom lens is simply magnificent in its ability to capture brilliant high-resolution images in low-light conditions requiring fully open aperture.

In-Camera Image Stabilization - A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony & 945 system DSLR -- and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.

SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) - Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.

Carl Zeiss T Coating - Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss and this superb lens features T (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces.

Multi-Element Design - The SAL-2470Z is designed with 17 lens elements in 13 groups, including 2 aspherical elements and 2 ED glass elements. Floating motion between the third and fourth groups of lens elements helps compensate for any aberrations caused by the zooming action of the lens.

Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements - These precision lens elements correct distortion for sharper, more visually accurate images across the entire zoom range of the lens.

  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used in Carl Zeiss lenses to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.

Review submitted for Sony SAL2470Z - Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 24-70mm f2.8 Zoom Lens for Alpha DSLR's (SNSAL2470Z)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: This is one of the best lenses I have ever used. IMO it is better than the NIKON and CANON 24-70. It is super sharp. It captures the most vivid and fantastic colors. It is a quality product in every way. The only downside is the side but you kind of expect that with a full frame 2.8 Must have for Sony shooters.
