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.

I'm looking for a leather case that would work well with this lens. Preferably the original Sony leather case/pouch. Do you have any recommendations?
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.
