All-in-One Versatility
Do it all with the Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens for full-frame E-mount cameras. Able to cover everything from wide-angle to telephoto in a single compact form factor, this lens is the go-to choice when portability, reach, and focal length flexibility are required.
Optics and Design
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • Five aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • Spanning wide-angle to super-telephoto, this is an ideal single-lens solution for travel and other applications where a minimalist-but-versatile setup is the priority.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures. Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and Image Stabilization
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.

question

This new lens seems like would be an excellent everyday lens for my A7 that will offer a lot of flexibility. Would there be any downside to using this as my primary lens as compared to the kit lens FE 28-70 (other then I'm out $1000)?
Asked by: Tom S.
Weight. I have both lenses, really love the 24-240, but sometimes it’s more weight or more obvious than I want. But is a great lens!

question

I am wondering how would this 24-240mm lens work on the new Sony A9 mirrorless digital camera. I know that the 2.8 24-70mm lens would be a better choice for this camera. but I'm going to purchase the A9 camera and with the cost of the camera and the 2.8 24-70mm lens I thought that I would purchase the 24-240mm lens because of the extra reach that you get with that lens until I can afford the 24-70 lens. That 24-240mm lens would make a good walk around lens in brite daylight but the 2.8 24-70mm lens would be better for night time photography. I'm I correct on that subject? Thank You!
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi you are definitely correct on the subject 24-240mm is a perfect walk around lens because of its versatile focal length however the 24-70 is better for low light photography because of its wider aperture of f/2.8 which allow more light into the camera sensor. The choice is yours with one note on the a9. For 24-240mm lens on a9 body In Continuous Shooting Hi mode, the maximum speed of continuous shooting with AF tracking is 15 frames per second.

question

Can you manually focus with the lens instead of using auto focus?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, definitely. You set the camera to Manual Focus ( MF ) and turn the ring. As you turn it, the picture magnifies digitally through the view finder to help you make sure the focus is sharp. Works great!

Does anybody use this lens professionally?

Does anybody use this lens professionally?
Asked by: Marlon
I am a part time professional, I submit most of my photos to a Stock Photo Agency and thus receive compensation when one of those photos is purchased through the Agency (I typically get a notice most days that I made some $$, but those notices are rarely more than $10!) The 24-240 is one of my most used lens. Interestingly I've received some messages from other photographers when I've entered photos in other areas, like contests, being surprised I use this lens, that they think it is an inferior lens. Over the years I've used this lens without any issues, I've begun to believe either this lens gets a bad rap that is unwarranted, or I happened to get a superior one.
