The Standard Zoom Refined
A fast, standard zoom favored for its versatility, the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM is a wide-angle to short telephoto lens featuring advanced G Master optics, a robust physical design, and a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture. A go-to lens for a variety of shooting situations, the 24-70mm f/2.8 is a perfect choice for anything from landscape to sports to portraiture subjects.
Uncompromising Optical Design
  • As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.
  • Of the three aspherical elements incorporated in the lens design, one is an XA element with superior surface precision to effectively reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations from imagery.
  • One extra-low dispersion element and one Super ED element are featured in the lens design and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
  • Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance from wide-angle to telephoto focal length positions and also contributes to greater selective focus control.
  • A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Fast Focusing and Reliable Performance
  • Direct Drive Super Sonic wave AF motor and internal focus mechanism provide quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contribute to more natural, intuitive manual focus control.
  • A focus hold button and AF/MF switch are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • A dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Reviews

terribly let down

I was so excited to get this lens but it intermittently tells me the lens is not attached correctly and won't focus. Everything is clean and new I don't understand. It works fine for hours, then out of the blue it wont focus and gets super dark. It's getting worse and now im afraid to even take it on a shoot. Super bummed.

I have owned the lens for about 1-1/2 months. I have used it for a high-density Christmas in July Party. (5) Paid and (2) Volunteer Events. Because the Sony A7IV has more than enough latitude, the 2.8 f-Stop was not of concern.

One of the best lenses out there

This lens is very very sharp and works great with the A7IV. It's fast to focus. The only issue is that it is big. Larger than I was expecting and so its not great for a walk around lens for that reason. It's the trade off though for a zoom lens that can maintain 2.8 throughout its range.

I had the older Sony 24-70 lens and gave it up due to it's weight. The new lens is a bit lighter but this new lens seems to react much faster when focusing. So far I love it!!!

Does this lens work well with the eye and tracking focus features of the Sony A7SIII?
Asked by: Steven
I just saw this I apologize if I am too late. This is a great lens. Clarity, speed. I'm not sure what else may be in your bag? The 24-70 F/2.8 is my go-to lens. If I were to take my camera with one lens, this is the lens I take. This is a great choice for your camera.

I need a single lens for solo portraits and group shots. Is this lens good enough for this purpose?
Asked by: ARNEL
The 24-70 2.8 GM is an awesome lens. It would work well for group portraits but not ideal for individual one-which are generally best taken with a fsst 80-135mm lens, 2.8 or better something between 1.4-2.0. You could do the individual portraits at 70mm/ 2.8. That will work best if you place your background as far away from the subject as possible so you get better separation. If you can place the subject close to the minimum focus distance at 2.8 you can also direct more attention to your subject with the apperature wide open.

Asked by: Shalom
We currently have 2 leather case which will fit this lens. BH #KEKMBHRTLNCS and B&H# HAXALLP. This last option will have the rear lens cap expose. Unfortunately Sony does not make leather lens cases or pouch.

How does this lens handle flare? For instance, if you are using a backlight on a subject. I did a side-by-side test on two zooms that were sold as kit lenses for the Sony F7 and the Sony F7 m2. The former lens (28-135, iirc) flared like crazy, while the second one (18-110) was perfect. How does the 24-70 stack up in this classic interview situation?
Asked by: Arthur
This is a high quality GM lens. You should not experience any serious lens flare issues.
