Although it is a wide-angle zoom, and an ideal supplement to a high-
performance mid-range zoom, the 16–35mm range of this lens will satisfy
the core focal length requirements of many photographers who shoot
primarily indoors or in the city. At the other end of the spectrum it can
be a great choice for spacious landscapes as well. Regardless of where
or how the SAL1635Z is used, its advanced coated optical path delivers
20
exceedingly crisp images with striking contrast, without the aberration
and peripheral light falloff that commonly plague wide-angle zooms.
That same superlative quality is maintained throughout the zoom range,
even at the maximum F2.8 aperture.
