Sony released the smallest and lightest full frame zoom lens

Simultaneously with the Sony a7C full-frame mirrorless camera, a lens was introduced that takes full advantage of the Sony a7C’s compact size. This is the FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 – according to the manufacturer, “the smallest and lightest full-frame zoom lens”.

Among the advantages of the lens also include protection against dust and moisture, which promotes everyday use, and a relatively large maximum magnification, which adds versatility. The lens has a linear focusing actuator that is compatible with Sony’s latest tracking autofocus features.
