    Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Announcement

      News

    Today, a new Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS, the newest G Lens representative, also had its premiere. Exceptional image quality, quick and precise autofocus, and compact construction are the greatest advantages of the new lens.

     

    The lens consists of 17 elements, placed in 14 groups. Among them there are four aspheric lenses, including two incredibly precise AA lenses. The front lens has a fluorine coating, which prevents the settling of dust, water, grease, and other forms of contamination.

    1). Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS

     

    The lens uses DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) autofocus, which enables to move the groups of lenses responsible for focus adjustment in a quick, precise, and quiet way. The used autofocus should also fulfil its role not only during photographing, but also during film-making.

    2). Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS with Sony A7r

     

    The presented FE 24-105 mm f/4 G OSS model has the dimensions of 113x83mm and it weighs 663g, which makes it one of the smallest and lightest lenses in its class. Apart from that, the tubus has been sealed and it is resistant to dust and moisture.

     

    The universality of the lens is additionally increased by elements such as a focus memory button with the function defined by the user, or the minimum focus distance of 38cm.

     

    The lens will be available on sale in November. It will cost around $1300.

      DESCRIPTION OF THE SONY RX100 VI
      Sony RX100 series are the most advanced compact cameras on the market. They are often used by professionals when the use of heavy professional cameras with replaceable optical system is not possible or does not make sense.

      RX100 VI is equipped with the 1'' sensor, in Exmor RS technology, with the resolution of 10.1Mp. The ISO range of 125 to 12800 can be extended to ISO 80 to 25600. Thanks to the use of Bionz X processor, together with LSI chip and dedicated DRAM memory, the camera's efficiency enables taking photographs with the speed of 24f/s, or even 233 JPEG photographs in the 'Fine' quality in the buffer. The camera offers the fastest  autofocus in its class, based on 315 phase-detection points, with 65% frame coverage. The focusing time is 0.03s.

      Videos will be recorded in 4K HDR, in the resolution of 3840x2160, with the use of the Hybryd Long Gamma profile. Full HD materials will be recorded with the speed of 120f/s, and in slow motion, the camera will be able to record even 1000 frames per second.

      The lens of Sony RX100 VI is equipped with the zoom with the equivalent of 24-200mm and it is based on 15 lenses (10 aspherical ones, including 2 low-dispersion ones), placed in 12 groups. The aperture range is f/2.8 - f/4.5, and the new processor will be able to reduce greater noise of photographs taken in low light. 

      Sony RX100 VI is equipped with a full touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1228 thousand points. The screen can be folded by 180 degrees upwards and by 90 degrees downwards. This should certainly satisfy vloggers and selfie-lovers. The camera has a retractable electronic  viewfinder with the resolution of 2359 thousand points and the flash.

      Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM - a small wide-angle lens dedicated for photographers and filmmakers. Lens has been designed based on thirteen lenses placed in ten groups - two lenses are made in XA (extremely aspherical) technology and three are made of low-dispersion glass.  The lenses are covered with anti-reflective Nano AR coatings, which are to ensure perfect resolution within the whole frame, smooth blurring and unique effects during work against the sunlight. The lens' aperture is made of eleven blades whose closing enables achieving the effective of 22-arm stars at light points - sharp photographs can be taken already from the distance of 24cm. The lens is small, it has the dimensions of 92 x 75mm and it weighs 445g. We can mount filters with the diameter of 67mm on the lens.

      Definitely having in mind people who record films with the use of mirrorless Sony cameras, the modes of the lens ring work. The ring responsible for aperture control can work in the continuous mode and the focus ring directly translates to the movement of lenses. Inside the lens, we will find the ultrasonic Direct Drive SSM motor, which, as the producer assures, is now 3x faster than the older constructions and it ensures quiet work.

      The lens will appear on sale this month and it will cost $1400.
