Sony FE 24-50mm F2.8 G Compact Lightweight Standard Zoom Lens with Large F2.8 Constant Aperture

A compact F2.8 zoom that is ready to go anywhere With a 24-50 mm range that is ideal for everyday shooting, this versatile zoom offers a large F2.8 maximum aperture and beautiful rendering at all focal lengths in a remarkably compact, lightweight design. With the innovative FE 24-50mm F2.8 G you get refined large-aperture imaging performance for both stills and movies.

Outstanding G Lens image quality with corner-to corner high resolution at all focal lengths

An advanced optical design that includes four aspherical elements and two ED (Extra low Dispersion) elements delivers high resolution throughout the 24-50 mm zoom range. Flare, ghosting, and color bleeding are effectively subdued for clear, detailed rendering.

Peak AF performance with two Linear Motors for precise, fast, quiet focus drive

Two specially optimized linear motors and a precision control system acquire focus on any subject with remarkable speed and accuracy. Tracking performance is excellent, easily keeping up with Sony's advanced α9 III camera at up to 120 fps. Precise, quiet focus is smoothly acquired and maintained even when shooting high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movies.

Excellent close-up performance of 18cm (7.09”) at 24mm manual focus

Painstaking optical optimization has achieved excellent close-up performance at all focal lengths. Maximum magnification is 0.3x (AF)/0.33x (MF) with a minimum focus distance of 0.19 m (0.63 ft) (AF)/0.18 m (0.59 ft) (MF) at the wide end of the range for superb close-up performance that, combined with compact size, makes this lens great for tabletop photography.

Compact, lightweight design for superb image quality and versatility in any situation.

Even though it boasts a high-performance optical design with four aspherical elements and a large F2.8 maximum aperture, this lens is only 74.8 mm in diameter by 92.3 mm in length (3 x 3-3/4 inch). Optimized construction enhances durability while reducing weight to 440 grams (15.6 oz. - appx) for agile mobility and minimum stress during long shooting sessions.

Deep, naturally rendered bokeh emphasizes the subject

A maximum aperture that remains constant at F2.8 throughout the zoom range, state-of-the-art optical design, and an 11-blade circular aperture unit all work in harmony to deliver the smooth, deep bokeh that is a hallmark of Sony’s G Lens line-up. Exquisite bokeh naturally emphasizes the subject.

Constant F2.8 aperture in a mobile zoom that is great for movies

Precise, quiet AF and an F2.8 aperture in a compact, lightweight zoom is ideal for movies. Minimal center of gravity shift makes this lens a good choice for gimbal or drone mounting. Combined with in-camera Active Mode stabilization it can deliver stable handheld footage at wide angles while walking. Breathing compensation and metadata recording are supported.

Circular aperture with 11-blade iris for naturally rendered bokeh

The deep, soft bokeh available with full-frame image sensors is further enhanced by a 11-blade circular aperture and optimally tuned spherical aberration. All of this supports the creation of impressive, memorable imagery.

Advanced aspherical and ED glass elements control spherical and chromatic aberrations

Four advanced aspherical and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements ensure corner to corner high contrast and significantly reduce chromatic aberration for sharp reproduction without color bleeding.

Dedicated aperture ring, click/de-click and iris lock switches

For direct, intuitive creative control when shooting stills and movies, this lens features a full complement of three control rings: focus, zoom, and aperture. The aperture ring click stops can be turned ON to provide tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for smooth, silent control when shooting movies. 

Comprehensive control and Linear Response MF

In addition to three control rings the FE 24-50mm F2.8 G includes a customizable focus hold button and AF/MF switch. Linear Response MF ensures immediate, intuitive manual focus control. Internal focus makes it easy to use rotatable 67 mm filters, such as variable ND types that are often used when shooting movies.
