Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM

Fast wide-angle primes can be big and bulky, however that can’t be said about the FE 24mm F1.4 GM, which is considerably smaller and lighter than SLR equivalents. Sony has got the design and handling of lens just right. It feels perfectly matched with Sony a7-series full-frame cameras and provides a tactile aperture ring with a de-click switch that allows videographers to take silent aperture control. What impresses us most though is just how sharp it is. The level of sharpness at the edge of the frame at wide apertures left us gobsmacked. This fast prime sure packs a punch for its size and Sony users will love it.

The details

Unsparing application of leading-edge technology achieves refined G Master performance with consistently high resolution and soft, natural bokeh even at the widest F1.4 aperture setting. The lens is both compact and the lightest in its class, offering maximizing portability. It also boasts fast, precise AF drive, top-level control and superb reliability. 

Advanced optical technology achieves spectacular resolution even at F1.4

Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements in an optical design that meets stringent G Master requirements contribute to consistently high resolution throughout the image area. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements are also included to effectively suppress chromatic aberration. These innovative optical designs minimise sagittal flare so that point light sources are accurately reproduced.

State-of-the-art optical design faithfully reproduces point light sources

A new optical design incorporating two precision XA elements suppresses sagittal flare, a common aberration in large-aperture lenses. Sagittal flare can cause an unnatural spreading of point light sources that becomes more pronounced towards the image periphery.

Innovative optical design in a compact, lightweight lens

A new optical design that reduces overall lens diameter by employing two XA elements, one for the front element that is normally the largest in a lens, combines with a newly developed DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) focus drive system to achieve a remarkably light total weight of just 445 grams (15.7 oz.). The reduced size and weight of this lens makes it an ideal match for compact E-mount bodies, providing outstanding mobility.

Breathtaking G Master bokeh

An 11-blade circular aperture enhances soft, natural looking bokeh – achieved through advanced design and a manufacturing process that includes precise control of spherical aberration. A minimum focusing distance of 0.24 meters (0.79 ft.) and maximum magnification of 0.17x mean close-up capability that, combined with the lens’s wide-angle view, can produce dramatic perspectives that also make good use of deep, lush bokeh.

Fast, precise, quiet AF for stills and movies

A newly designed high-power DDSSM optimised for this lens, delivers approximately three times greater thrust than the previous focus drive system. The increased power of the new DDSSM system provides faster, more precise, quieter autofocus drive capability, for outstanding performance when shooting stills and movies.

Professional control and dependability for stills and movies

Customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click switch, Linear Response MF, dust and moisture resistant design, and fluorine front-element coating all add up to fully professional control and reliability for movies as well as stills.
