Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Overview

By B&H Photo's

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens

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.

Chiaro Pro 82mm 98-UVAT UV Filter

The Pro 82mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. Resistance coating improves the scratch resistance of the glass, and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.


98% Light Transmission

Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Resistance Coating

The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.

Polished Optical Glass

Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling offers a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

It's a solid lens.

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.

The focus is just so much better. I had been holding off on buying because I didn't think it would that crazy different from the 24-70mm stock lens but omg it definitely is

Solid, sharp image quality. It is nice to have f/2.8 on a zoom lens. The only two things I don't like is the extending barrel style for the zoom and the lack of Image Stabilization (the 70-200mm has both). For a G-Master I would have expected a little more.

perfect all around

before getting this lens, i ran around with the 85mm gmaster. i love it, but i just hated when i wanted to capture somethin up close especially when it was something quick i needed to capture. so i got the 24-70gmaster. this lens, man is it great. amazing build quality. perfect versatility in terms of range. definitely the only lens i need to carry with me when i'm out and about (unless i know i'm shooting portraits ONLY)
