New Sony Zeiss 16-70mm f4 ZA OSS NEX E-mount lens
The Sony-Zeiss alliance had another child today, its name is Sony Zeiss Vario Tessar T* 16-70mm f4 ZA OSS, another new NEX E-mount APS-C zoom lens. Its "equivalency" is around 24-105mm eq. OSS for optical image stabilization. Minimum aperture is f22. It takes 55mm filters. It has 16 elements in 12 groupons including four aspheric. It weighs just over 300 grams. It comes with end caps, petal hood and case.
The lens is already available for pre-order at Adorama for $1,000. You can't possibly expect a Zeiss lens in three figures, can you? :) The release estimate is for mid-September 2013.
