The Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM lens achieves refined F Master performance with only the best of high-resolution quality that could be found throughout its focal range, adding softness, natural bokeh even at the widest f/1.4 aperture setting. Being compact and also the lightest in its class at only 445g, it certainly is capable of producing data swiftly between the body and lens, with a precise AF drive, plus top-level control and reliability which is ideal for professionals.
With the Sony FE 24mm GM lens, youll get impressive corner to corner resolution as the lens utilises two XA (Extreme Aspherical) elements, where one is used for the front element to effectively compensate for field curvature, coma, and astigmatism that can become an issue in wide-angle large-aperture optics. However, it strongly contributes to leaving you with only the best of corner-to-corner resolution even when shooting at its maximum aperture of f/1.4. Also, with three ED (extra-low Dispersion) glass elements thats been packed into the lens optical path to effectively reduce axial and lateral chromatic aberration.
Sony has applied special Nano AR coating to the lens, to provide an effective solution by suppressing internal reflections that could possibly lead to flare and ghosting taking place. The coating contributes to achieving optimum contrast and clarity even in the widest possible range of shooting conditions.
The lens is equipped with a rounded 11-blade diaphragm, that contributes to an impressive and pleasing bokeh quality with a soft, smooth background when employing selective focus techniques.
Incorporated in the lens, youll find an aperture ring that provides the type of immediacy and response that professional photographers seek for both still photography and videography. With a click of a button, you can switch the aperture ring either ON/OFF as required. It will either make it easier to gauge how much the ring has been adjusted by feel which is perfect for still photography (when engaged), or to have the aperture ring move smoothly and quietly which is perfectly for filming (when disengaged).
Something intuitive that has been added to the lens construction is a focus hold button that can be customised from the body menu. This allows the user to access a secondary function assigned to the focus hold button, which could either be Grid Lines to check your composition when shooting landscapes, or for White Balance which you could adjust the white balance to match current lighting conditions.
With a newly developed high-power DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) featuring in the lens, it contributes to reduced size and weight of this powerful lens, while being three times greater thrust than the previous system. The power added to the focus drive provides a much faster, precise and quitter autofocus drive making it suitable for both still photography and recording of video.<
The front element of the lens is coated with fluorine to resist dust, oil, water, fingerprints, and it allows easy cleaning if such contaminants do appear on the lens surface.
