Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM Full-Frame Large-Aperture Wide-Angle Prime G Master Lens

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM offers outstanding quality and performance with an ultra-wide-angle field of view and bright f/1.8 aperture packed in a compact and lightweight design. It uses two XA (extreme aspherical) elements, one aspherical, two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, and one Super ED element paired with Nano Anti-Reflective coating II that dramatically reduce chromatic aberration, flare, and ghosting to produce high-contrast, high-resolution to deliver images with corner-to-corner sharpness. This lens also produces gorgeous bokeh with precision focus performance and is suitable for astrophotography, architecture, landscape, and even portraits and movie shooting.

21mm Equivalent on APS-C Bodies

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 G Master Lens is compatible with APS-C as well as full-frame cameras. It offers a wide focal length of 21mm (full-frame format equivalent) and balances well on smaller APS-C format camera bodies.

Two XA (Extreme Aspherical) Lens Elements

This G Master Lens’ design incorporates two extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) elements and one Aspherical element to achieve stunning resolution throughout the image area while delivering smooth, creamy bokeh in out-of-focus areas. The XA elements also compensate for coma, field curvature, and astigmatism - common issues for wide-angle lenses with large-aperture. They also correct the Sagittal coma flare, making this lens ideal for capturing stars in the night sky. These elements contribute to the compact and lightweight design, providing a closer focusing distance.

f/1.8 Max Aperture

The f/1.8 max aperture is designed to provide extraordinary brightness and shallow depth of field where your subject stands out against a smoothly defocused foreground and background. This wide f/1.8 aperture combined with 9 circular aperture blades and two XA (extreme aspherical) elements delivers ultra-sharp in-focus areas with beautiful soft defocused bokeh. The fast f/1.8 aperture is also suitable for shooting situations that require more advanced light-gathering capabilities like indoor, night, and astrophotography.

One Super ED and Two ED Glass Elements

The lens also uses one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two ED glass elements that significantly reduce axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration. Resolution and bokeh are maximized while leaving precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration right out to the image edges.

Nano Anti-Reflective Coating II Enhances Clarity

The large lens elements or highly curved element surfaces come with Nano Anti-Reflective Coating II that suppresses internal reflections and minimizes flare and ghosting for clear, crisp imagery. Despite the lens's wide-angle of view, this coating helps maintain high clarity and contrast throughout the entire image, even when shooting in scenes with difficult lighting.

Close-Ups with Stunning Bokeh

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 G Master offers a minimum focusing distance of 9.8 inches with 0.1x magnification, making it possible to shoot impressive close-ups with smooth, creamy background bokeh. This compact wide-angle prime lens can deliver incredible images with an extremely wide variety of subjects.

XD Linear Motors for Fast, Precise, Quiet Focusing

The lens utilizes a precision internal focus mechanism that uses two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors to match the high-speed capabilities of today’s most advanced camera bodies. The updated control algorithms make it possible to drive the lens’s focus group smoothly and without delays for responsive, silent, precise, and continuous autofocus in both still and video modes.

Compact, Lightweight Design

This lens weighs just 16.3 oz and measures only 3.26 x 3.93 inches. The compact and lightweight design enhances mobility when used with compact E-mount Full-frame or APS-C bodies and makes up a well-balanced system that is ideal for use on gimbals or accessory grips.
