The new premium Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS T* E-Mount lens for Sony NEX mirrorless cameras features a 55mm filter thread, optical image stabilisation, and is due to be launched mid September, with an estimated retail price of £839.
Build quality is excellent as you would expect for a Carl Zeiss branded lens, and the lens gives the equivalent of 24 - 105mm in 35mm terms. The introduction of this lens, plus the new Sony G 18-105mm f/4 PZ OSS lens brings the total number of Sony NEX lenses available to 16.
Other New lenses:

- 50mm f/1.8 OSS Black (New colour) - £249 Mid September launch
