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.

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.
