Ultra-Wide Portable Prime

Mixing an ultra-wide field of view with an ultra-sleek design, the Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G is a portable prime characterized by its smart build and sophisticated G Series optics. The wide-angle focal length and modest maximum aperture excel in a variety of situations, such as for street, architecture, landscape, and travel, and the portable build and stylish looks make for a great go-to lens for everyday shooting.

Matched Set of Compact Primes

Together with the FE 40mm f/2.5 and 50mm f/2.5 G lenses, these three lenses form a cohesive trio with similar styling, image quality, and ergonomics:
  • All lenses prioritize a compact profile with an emphasis on intuitive handling; each features a manual aperture ring along with other tactile controls.
  • The three lenses share the same 49mm filter ring diameter.
  • Matched aluminum finish with stylish focal length and aperture engravings, both aperture and focusing rings, and matching metal lens hoods.

G Lens Series

  • Three aspherical elements promote more uniform sharpness across the frame by suppressing spherical aberrations and distortions.
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element controls color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color fidelity.
  • Rounded 7-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Focus Control for Stills and Video

  • Two linear motors deliver quick and accurate autofocus performance, along with capable subject tracking for working with fast-moving subjects. This AF system is also especially quiet to suit its use for cine applications.
  • Internal focusing design limits the overall length of the lens for faster, more responsive focusing.
  • Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Impressive close-up performance for working with close-up subjects; this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 7.1" with MF (9.4" with AF), which results in a 0.19x maximum magnification.

Sleek-but-Robust Design

  • Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
  • Lens measures 1.8" and weighs 5.7 oz, making it a great portable choice that's well-suited to both full-frame and APS-C bodies.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
  • Fluorine-coated front element is easy to clean and resists dust, moisture, and fingerprints.

Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G Reviews

Impressive

I paired this with the A7C for a backpack outing where I wanted to keep things light. I'm pretty impressed with the sharpness using this body. I think it's perfect for landscapes where size and weight matter and you're not planning aggressive crops. Wider angle/higher resolution shots can be had by shooting vertically oriented panoramas and combining them in Lightroom. Great value.

The lens is very small and makes the camera very portable. Great ergonomics too, feels very well built. The image quality is not superb, but that is to be expected of a small pocketable lens.

Excellent Prime Sony Lens

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been very pleased with my new Sony lens. The autofocus is quick and smooth. Pictures are crisp and sharp. The size of the lens is also good. It is nice and compact and fits in my bag with my other equipment. I also like the feature of being able to easily switch between manual and auto focus modes with ease. I would highly recommend this lens to anyone looking to upgrade from their own standard lenses to this prime lens.

If you need a wide-enough-angle lens, this may be for you. I have owned several primes from 20mm (widest) to 85mm (narrowest), from Sony to Tamron, and this one performs as good if not better including Auto Focus and video. So great that I sold my 20mm. Now I'm waiting for my 35-150mm Tamron II and those will be enough for what it need (and then I could sell more of my lenses I don't need). Then later to step up to 200-600mm and I'll be all set.

Compact wonder!

How much do you have to rotate the focus ring from closest focusing distance to infinity?
Asked by: Ben
The Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G Lens (B&H# SO2428G) has a "focus by wire" electronic (and not mechanical) connection between the focus ring and the motorized focus mechanism. The distance that you will need to turn the focus ring will depend on the speed at which you turn the focus ring. The faster you turn it, the less you'll need to spin the focus ring. A twist of about 180 degrees will generally be able to get you to the focus position you want. It could be more if you are twisting the focus ring slowly, however. If you prefer a linear response then will want to switch the focus to manual (as opposed to autofocus) and then the focus pulls will be linear.
