The FE 12-24mm f2.8 GM Lens is Sony’s latest Full-Frame G Master lens and the world’s widest zoom to feature a constant aperture of f2.8. This is the perfect lens for landscape and starscape photography.
The 12mm end of the lenses range offers an ultra-wide angle of view that is perfect for landscape, starscape and architecture photography as well as sports photographers who want to utilise the ultra-wide angles.
Outstanding G Master image quality is achieved thanks to Sony’s advanced XD Linear Motors in a lightweight lens that also offers fast, precise autofocus, smooth control, and solid reliability.
Thanks to the constant F2.8 maximum aperture throughout its zoom length, this lens is ideal for shooting night scenes, starry skies, and other low-light subjects at low sensitivities without having to use extremely slow shutter speeds.
Three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, including the largest ever made for any α lens, combine with one aspherical element in an innovative optical design that achieves stunning G Master resolution throughout the image area.
Two Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and three ED glass elements suppress chromatic aberration that can degrade resolution in this type of large-aperture lens, ensuring that colour smearing does not occur anywhere in the image area so that maximum sharpness is maintained throughout.
While the extremely high surface precision of the lens’s XA elements effectively suppresses onion-ring bokeh, fine tuning of the its spherical aberration characteristics during both design and manufacture, plus a 9-blade circular aperture, contribute to exquisitely smooth, creamy G Master bokeh.
A total of four XD Linear Motors, two for each of the lens’s focus groups, contribute to fast, precise autofocus and tracking that augment the many advantages provided by Sony’s native lenses. This advanced system makes full use of the speed potential provided by high-performance camera bodies, making it easier to capture significant moments in the most dynamic sports or other types of action. AF operation is also quiet with minimal vibration.
The lens is perfect for video creation thanks to its constant F2.8 maximum aperture that ensures that exposure is stable when zooming. Because of this shutter speed and ISO sensitivity can remain consistent whilst shooting video.
Standard sheet-type ND, color correction, and other filters can be inserted into the lens’s rear filter holder for expanded expressive capability. A cutting template for sheet filters is supplied
