Sony Sonnar T* E 24mm f/1.8 ZA Overview

Practically distortion-free and featuring a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, this Sonnar T* E 24mm f/1.8 ZA Lens from Sony will help APS-C E-mount shooters capture difficult scenes with ease. Offering a 36mm equivalent focal length, this lens is a common choice for street, interiors, landscapes, and general photography. Also, thanks to the use of one extra-low dispersion element, two aspherical elements, and the Zeiss T* coating, shooters will enjoy images free from aberrations and flare. Operation is speedy as well due to the use of a fast and silent linear autofocus motor and an internal focus design, which permits focusing as close as 6.3" for close ups with a 0.25x magnification. Additionally, it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth, round bokeh.

Based on the Zeiss Sonnar optical concept, this lens uses a design with eight elements in seven groups that helps achieve the large maximum aperture of f/1.8 while simultaneously reducing flare and improving contrast.
A wide-angle prime designed for APS-C Sony E-mount cameras, this 24mm lens will provide an equivalent focal length of 36mm. It can also be used on full-frame E-mount cameras in APS-C mode.
The f/1.8 maximum aperture allows users to create images with shallow depth of field and work in low-light conditions with relative ease.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
The advanced optical design permits a minimum focus distance of just 6.3" for a maximum magnification of 0.25x, allowing shooter to capture sharp close ups.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

can i use this lens with my sony a7 or a7r
Asked by: Anonymous
While the SEL24F18Z 24mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens can be used on the a7 and a7R, it is not a full frame lens. This means you will need to shoot in the cropped sensor mode with this lens.

question

On the a6000 series camera how does the image quality compare to the Sony fe 28mm f2.0 lens?
Asked by: Mark C.
This is a higher quality lens than the Sony FE 28mm F2.0. This is a Zeiss Sonnar lens which has better caliber optics and a nicer overall build quality. It will product a superior overall image.

question

Hello.....Will this lens operate & fit seamlessly on my A6000 without the need to sacrifice any of the camera's functionality? Will this lens also display the A6000's 179 phase & 25 contrast detection point because my previous Sigma 19mm lens did not? When I attach this lens to my A6000 will it be suitable to photograph high speed close up indoor/outdoor sports like table tennis & volleyball etc?
Asked by: Stuart B.
This lens is intended for use with a Sony NEX camera with an APS-C size sensor, not with a full-size sensor. It may fit on the camera, but it will not use the full area of the sensor. Not recommended.

question

Is this lens a good fit for the Sony a6300? If so is the AF decent? Is this lens adequate for stills and video?
Asked by: Jeff C.
Ive been using this lens on the a6000 for almost two years; in my opinion, it is phenomenal. Sharp, fast, great focal length w/APS-C crop (equates to 36mm), and close focal distance. On the a6300 youll probably see even better AF, but Ive never had any complaints. I recently purchased the a7s II and my biggest hangup in moving to full frame was leaving this lens behind... its that good.For reference, Ive used the 35mm 1.8 and currently own the 50mm 1.8. Both are solid lenses and will serve you well on the a6300, but the SEL24F18Z is by far my favorite for both photo and video. Grab it now, save $200, and have fun!
