Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G Lens

The FE 24mm f/2.8 G produces big views from a small lens. Measuring only 2.7 x 1.8" and weighing 5.7 oz, this is a prime made for effortless carry at the perfect focal length for capturing landscapes, cityscapes, and interiors. Extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements work together to temper distortion and maintain the sharpness expected from a G-series lens. A minimum focusing distance of 9.4" encourages creative compositions and selective focusing. Two XD linear motors provide responsive and quiet autofocusing, whether shooting stills or video. Additionally, a de-clickable aperture ring, AF/MF switch, and customizable focus hold button work together to simplify on-lens control. Finally, dust and moisture sealing protects against the elements.

Applications: This lens is equally suited for photographers and videographers looking for a compact and lightweight prime to capture wide-angle compositions.
