Portable Design, Broad Versatility

Ultra-wide and versatile, the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is a flexible, everyday wide zoom characterized by its nimble design and well-rounded performance that makes it ideal for architectural, interior, and landscape subjects. And, as a G Lens, priority has been given to the optical design, which specifically helps to reduce distortion and achieve high sharpness across the frame for accurate rendering and high resolution.

Sophisticated G Optics

  • Four aspherical elements are featured in the optical design to control spherical aberrations in order to produce a high degree of sharpness while also limiting distortion.
  • One Super ED and three ED elements are used to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
  • Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range.

Intuitive Handling and Sleek Design

  • Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor AF system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance that is suitable for both stills and video use.
  • Customizable focus hold button on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Integrated lens hood helps reduce flaring and also provides some physical protection to the front lens element.

Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Reviews

Extreme Wide Angle Beast of a Zoom

By Burt
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-26

I purchased the lens for urban photography, for a trip to NYC. It will work for landscapes and interiors as well. I love that the lens is f/4 throughout the 12-24mm zoom range. The lease is tack sharp and because it is a Sony lens, its algorithms match perfectly with my alpha a7R III. A great lens at a fair price.

Horrible quality!

After 2 years, the lens stop focusing. It shows focus, but everything is blur. I cannot believe the horrible quality of this expensive lens!

An Enthusiast's Lens

By Marlon
Rated 3 out of 5

It's a mediocre lens, compared to a professional-level lens like the Canon L line with a similar zoom range. If you own a Sony alpha body with E-mount, just get a Canon EF lens and a Sigma adapter and you won't be disappointed. This is only an enthusiast's lens.

A Sony high quality lens

On my first outing, I got some great sunrise photos. I am still learning how to take advantage of the super wide angle perspective of this lens. I chose it over the f/2.8 and am not sorry. The Sony a7r sensor gives a wide latitude for working with low light. I just do not think the extra $1000 is worth the extra F stop of the FE 12-24 F/2.8.

Distorts Like Crazy

By zach

This lens is pretty sick but seems horrible for using with people in the shot. It distorts so much, makes people look like bobble head figures and huge legs. I purchased this lens primarily to film skating but its unusable because of the distortion. It doesn't only only distort people of course. Just in general while filming it distorts so much that while moving you can see the motion of the distortion like a wave. pretty bummed.

Absolutely Killer Lens, Shame About The Filter

By Sky

For ultra wide angle video on the A series bodies, this lens is fantastic! I love the build quality, weight, and handling. Only drawback is no ability to add a circular polarizer.

Very happy with this lens

I've begun to shoot in smaller spaces (museums, exhibits, galleries, etc.) where my 24-70 GM is not wide enough. The 12-24 fills my needs perfectly. The A1 loves it. Sharp and colors pop.

How weather sealed is this lens?

How weather sealed is this lens?
Asked by: Stanley
The front element or elements of the lens move when the zoom ring is turned, so my presumption is that water could get in between that moving assembly and the stationary outer barrel (and hood) of the lens. I don't KNOW that that's the case, but it seems wisest to assume the worst and behave cautiously.

question

Who used it with Sony a7sII for shooting video? What about auto focus? I want to use it with Zhiyun stabiliser and auto focus with face detect is very important for me. I can't choose between this lens and Zeiss 16-35 F/4.0.
Asked by: Alexandr
Both lenses will AF during video but the Zeiss 16-35mm will be faster.

Is there a way to use a circular polariser with this lens without buying an expensive filter holder? What is recommended?
Asked by: Jane
No, there isn't. But I would point out that a circular polarizer is not good to use with UWA lenses. It creates banding in the sky.
