World's first high-speed standard zoom lens for APS-C cameras
The 17-70mm F2.8 Di III-A VC RXD Lens has a focal length range of 17-70mm (25.5-105mm, 35mm equivalent) and is the first F2.8 high-speed zoom lens in the world for APS-C mirrorless cameras to achieve a 4.1x zoom ratio.

Outstanding optical performance
The lens is constructed of 16 elements in 12 groups. Two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements and one hybrid aspherical lens element are precisely arranged to maintain high-resolution performance from edge to edge. At 70mm, a commonly used telephoto zoom focal length, the design delivers excellent resolution from edge-to-edge.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 19cm
The 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD zoom focuses close, down to 0.19m MOD (Minimum Object Distance). This is far superior to the performance achieved by conventional high-speed zoom lenses for APS-C cameras. In addition, the 0.39m MOD at the 70mm telephoto end ensures good close-range shooting performance allowing photographers to enjoy compelling close-up shots.

Portable and compact design
The 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD zoom measures a scant 119.3mm in length and 74.6mm in maximum diameter and weighs only 525g. This is remarkable for a lens with built-in VC image stabilization. When used with Sony's APS-C mirrorless cameras, this zoom is nicely balanced and provides a comfortable user experience.
