Sony Alpha FE 12-24mm f/4 G Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens

The new Sony Alpha FE Zoom Lens opens up a world of new creative options with its exceptional G-Master performance and ultra-wide 12-24mm range! This lens captures images with high definition from one side of the frame to the other at any aperture setting. It’s quiet, fast autofocus make it ideal for movies and stills. This lens is an excellent choice for shooting landscapes and architecture since its compact, lightweight design makes active shooting easy.

Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom

This Sony Alpha lens offers photographers ultra-wide-angle zoom range that runs from 12mm to 24mm. This is the widest perspective in the company’s full-frame E-mount line-up. Optical aberrations are a common problem with extremely wide-angle lenses, but the optical design of this E-mount lens greatly reduces, or even eliminates, these optical distortions to achieve excellent resolution across the entire image area.

Constant f/4 Maximum Aperture

Constant f/4 max aperture maintains exposure and depth of field regardless of the focal range to which you zoom. When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the areas out of the focal plane appear blurred.

Super ED Glass

One Super ED glass element and three ED glass elements are strategically deployed to minimize chromatic aberration. Effective reduction of chromatic aberration contributes to improved sharpness and clarity throughout the image area.

Aspherical Lens Elements

The lens’s optical design incorporates four aspherical elements to suppress aberrations that can reduce image quality. These aberrations occur when light is refracted at different point on conventional spherical lenses. Specially shaped aspherical elements correct this issue to maintain image sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and ultra-wide angles.

Nano Anti-Reflective Coating

Sony’s original Nano Anti-Reflective Coating technology minimizes flare and ghosting by suppressing internal reflections and maintaining clarity, even in difficult outdoor lighting conditions, for dynamic range that achieves lifelike detail and gradation with advanced camera sensors. This precisely defined regular nano-structure allows accurate light transmission, contributing to high-quality images, more so than with lenses that use coatings with an irregular nano-structure. The reflection suppression characteristic of the Nano Coating is superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.

Direct Drive Supersonic Wave Motor

High-resolution cameras demand absolute focus precision. A floating mechanism driven by a DDSSM actuator maintains outstanding resolution from infinity to close focus for both stills and movies. DDSSM has the capability to position the large, heavy optical assemblies required by large-aperture lenses with pinpoint precision, offering accurate, fast and quiet autofocus. Manual focus response is natural and intuitive with the DDSSM system.

Fast, Quiet AF

While autofocus speed and precision are essential to quickly capture and reliably track the subject, quiet operation is a must for movie recording. This lens features an advanced inner-focus mechanism driven by Sony's DDSSM system.

7-Blade Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, light sources appear blurred. This bokeh effect of the blurred background is enhanced with the 7-blade circular aperture used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing, polygonal-shaped defocused points of light. Alpha lenses overcome this problem through a design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by two stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

Sony Alpha FE 12-24mm f/4 G Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens

Sony Alpha FE 12-24mm f/4 G Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens SKU: SEL1224G

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp and lightweight Sharp - lightweight lens, covers wide range but limited by filter options
Date published: 2022-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens to use in limited space. I've had this lens for one month. Works well up close. Works well in low light. I've taken handheld pictures after dark. Focuses fast and precise. Not too heavy to lug around all day. I usually hand carry my camera, and even when hanging from its leash, it doesn't feel too heavy. It allows you to take pictures of entire structures, even when you're in a tight spot. You can photograph people from head to toe from just a few feet away and take portraits from just inches. You need to have the budget to buy this lens, but if you can afford it, it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even great for night photography Had this lens for more than a year now and it replaced the Canon 11-24mm f4 Canon. I just lost 1 mm in the wide angle side but gained in reduced size and weight. Surprised about the quality for night photography at 12 mm, f 4, 30 seconds and ISO 4000 with tripod. Stars showed not noticeable comma of at the edge of the frame using Sony a&RIII.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity Awesome edge to edge clarity. Outstanding landscape pictures
Date published: 2019-01-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light and works great but beware of gray market I am very please with the performance of this lens and with its relatively light weight. It allows me to carry two lenses on long trips which was problematic previously. However, I received a non US version. So, beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony is the world leader in lens Had this Len for bout 2 months all i can tell you is wide catch detail like no other lens . check out my gallery on Instagram @trapboifuse

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice optics. Big & heavy. This lens is enormous and weighs a ton. Can't complain about what it does though. Takes mighty nice photos. Just be aware that it's big & heavy.
Date published: 2018-08-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for architecture landscape work The ultra wide angle FE 12-24mm lens is great for architecture, real estate or landscape photography, where a faster apeature may not be enssential. The lens produces sharp/contrasty images with minimal distrotion (when corrected in post) The AF is fast and acurate and is of the silent type with no noise when motor is working. Slightly pricy but it's the one of the few (or maybe the only) native lens option that you'll have for 12mm coverage.
