    Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Announcement

      News

    Together with the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens, Sony also presented a second one – this time, a super wide-angle FE 12-24mm f/4 G zoom, which is, at the moment, the widest lens of the producer. The lens is mainly intended for interior, architectural and landscape photography, and it should also fulfil its role in recording films.

     

    The optical lens of Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G consists of 17 elements placed in 13 groups. Advanced aspherical lenses (4 elements) as well as low-dispersion ones (4 elements) have been applied. Nano AR coating as well as the fluorine coating of the front element have been used.

    The lens is equipped with a smaller, 7-blade aperture, and only one ultrasonic DDSSM motor is responsible for adjusting focus.

    The lens is sealed and it weighs 566g, having the dimensions of 87x117mm. These are really compact dimensions for a full-frame lens with such parameters.

     

    Sony FE 12-24 mm f/4 G is to appear on sale in July and it will cost $1700.
