The Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens is an ultra-wide angle, large-aperture G Master zoom lens that's carefully been crafted for full-frame Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras. The lens delivers notably high resolution and sharpness throughout it's zoom range, as well as through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.

The Sony FE 12-24mm lens can be used for both photography and cine applications all thanks to a combination of advanced tech incorporated into this compact, and robust design. Powered into this innovative optical design are advanced XD Linear motors to deliver superior G Master image quality, fast, precise autofocus, smooth control, and solid reliability; a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture that performs exceptionally well in low-light conditions; and an outstanding lens construction that consists of a series of XA, aspherical, Super ED, and ED elements - all contributing to reduce a variety of aberrations and distortions for an enhancement of sharpness, accurate rendering, and notable colour accuracy.

Other features to this lens include dust- and moisture-sealed design and a fluorine-coated front lens element that's ideal for when photographing in inclement conditions; it can be utilised on APS-C models as well where it will then provide a 18-36mm equivalent focal length; a floating focus system; a Nano AR coating that's been applied to the lens element to help minimise flare, surface reflections, and ghosting for enhanced contrast and colour rendering in strong lighting conditions.

  • Sony produced a powerful ultra-wide angle, large-aperture G-Master zoom lens that's destined to deliver superior image resolution and sharpness throughout the zoom range, as well as correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.
  • The Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens features a really compact design, yet robust. The innovative lens design features great ergonomics - making it really easy to handle for both photography and cine applications.
  • The versatile Sony FE 12-24mm lens is carefully constructed for full-frame Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras. However, it can also be used on APS-C format cameras, which will then provide you with a 18-36mm equivalent focal length.
  • You can be just about anywhere, whether it be in low-light conditions; the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens will never let you down as it incorporates a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, and also affords enhanced control over depth of field.
  • A Floating Focusing System has been powered in. This system divides the focus group into two separately controlled groups and it also helps to maintain exceptionally clear optical performance throughout it's zoom range and focus ranges.
  • The lens barrel incorporates a focus hold button for intuitive tactile control and for really fast access to select settings.
  • The Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens achieves a minimum focusing distance of 28cm, which is available throughout the entire zoom.
  • Powered into this lens construction is a wide range of elements, that includes three XA (extreme aspherical) elements, and one standard aspherical element. All these elements features superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, distortion, coma, and other spherical aberrations to help the lens create a high-degree of sharpness and precise rendering throughout the entire zoom range.
  • Create beautiful portraits with this amazing lens, by adding beautiful bokeh to your images. This is all possible, all thanks to the rounded nine-blade diaphragm that's been incorporated.
  • The Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens also features a number of other elements, that includes two Super ED elements and three extra-low dispersion elements to help minimise chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for enhanced image clarity and natural colour.
