In February, Sony announced their new "G-Master" lineup of full frame zoom lenses, with fast apertures and made specifically for their mirrorless camera options, like the popular the a7rII, or even the recently reviewed a6300. In this video review by Chelsea and Tony Northrup, they got to kick the tires of the new 24-70mm f/2.8 Sony G-Master lens, and were impressed by the results.
In many discussion groups I've been a part of, it's been interesting to see how over the last year or so, how many filmmakers and photographers have started to buy into the Sony mirrorless camera bodies. Many, if not all of them, were using (expensive) lens adapters though, and that seemed to be a deterrent to some. Now with this G-Master line of lenses, Sony appears to have an offering that should appear very familiar to those coming from a Canon/Nikon world and their 24-70/70-200 lenses as go-tos.
Given the internal stabilization, low light capabilities, and whole array of other pro features found in the camera body of the a7rII, a complementary lens option now gives Sony a great a pair of equipment to offer photographers who need to create images at a high level. For those who are already shooting with one of the Sony compact mirrorless cameras, what do you think about these new lenses? Are you currently using native E-mount lenses or an adapter with Canon/Nikon glass? Pre-orders are available now on B&H.
