Gear Review: Sony Zeiss 16-35mm Vario-Tessar FE F/4 ZA OSS E-Mount Lens

The Sony Zeiss 16-35mm Vario-Tessar f/4 is a zoom lens built for Sony’s full frame mirrorless camera lineup. Featuring a wide angle zoom range, a weather resistant solid metal build, and optical image stabilization, the Sony 16-35mm is a dream come true for travel photographers. I recently took this lens with me to Iceland as my only option, and will detail my experience in this review.
