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 designed for E-mount mirrorless cameras. Featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, this lens maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and benefits working in low-light conditions and with selective focus techniques. Complementing the apt light-gathering capabilities is an equally impressive optical design, which incorporates three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements. One of the aspherical elements features an XA (extreme aspherical) designation, ensuring its refined surface precision and notable ability to minimize spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range. Additionally, a Nano AR Coating has been applied to individual elements to significantly minimize lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. Pairing a sophisticated optical design and versatile speed, this standard zoom is well-suited for use in a wide array of environments and lighting conditions.

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.
