A Review of the Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G Lens

The 24mm focal length is popular for offering a versatile wide angle of view, but not one so wide that significant distortion starts to become an issue. For Sony photographers and filmmakers, the FE 24mm f/2.8 G offers a very portable design meant to pair with company's lightweight mirrorless cameras to offer easy run-and-gun shooting. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G lens. Despite measuring only 1.8 inches long and weighing just 5.7 ounces, the 24mm f/2.8 G still comes with a range of useful features, including:

  • Three aspherical elements for decreased distortions and increased sharpness
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element for reduced chromatic aberrations and improved clarity
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Two linear motors for fast and quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
  • De-clickable aperture ring for video work
  • Linear Response manual focus control with corresponding AF/MF switch
  • Customizable focus hold buttons
  • 0.19x maximum magnification
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design
  • Fluorine-coated front element

Altogether, the FE 24mm f/2.8 G looks like an impressively portable option for a range of applications. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
