This remarkably compact and lightweight lens packs first-class optical performance and a versatile zoom range for your APS-C format camera. At the wide end you have a 16mm focal length that is ideal for interiors or sweeping landscapes. Zoom out to the 50mm end for mid-range telephoto reach that can bring details and distant subjects closer. What's more, you have a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range.

To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
To correct visual aberrations at wide-angle setting, enabling a lightweight lens to capture more visually accurate wide-angle shots.
The SAL1650 features a large f/2.8 aperture for fast response and superb depth-of-field.
Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
