Sony SEL24F28G FE 24mm f/2.8 G Full-Frame Ultra-Compact G Series Lens

Get creative using the ultra-compact Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G Full-Frame Lens with clear advantages for moviemaking. Featuring a high-quality optical design, this lens incorporates three aspherical lens elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element. The aspherical elements ensure sharp details while the ED glass element reduces chromatic aberration for outstanding corner-to-corner resolution. Weighing at only 162g, this lens can be easily mobilized preserving the compactness of the overall E-mount system whether shooting with a full-frame or APS-C body or shooting either still images or movie. Its ultra-compact size and lightweight balances well on smaller APS-C format bodies, providing a very useful wide-angle focal length of 36mm (full-frame format equivalent).

Beautiful Bokeh Effect

Thanks to the f/2.8 maximum aperture, this G Series Lens has the maximum light gathering capability during low-light situations and also provides a shallow depth of field. It also delivers beautiful natural bokeh effect with minimal spherical aberration.

High-Resolution Performance

The inclusion of three aspherical lens elements compensates for various aberrations and result in high-resolution performance from corner to corner of the image, even from the widest aperture with shallow depth of field. Additionally, the FE 24mm f/2.8 G incorporates an ED glass element that suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduces color fringing leaving precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration, while significantly reducing flare and ghosting.

Impressive Results

The incorporation of a 7-blade circular aperture allows for round defocused light sources.  This mechanism maximizes the beauty of this large-aperture prime-lens while the wide f/2.8 aperture and circular aperture blades contribute to impressive images in which the subject stands out against a smoothly defocused foreground and background. Additionally, featuring a wide 24mm angle of view contributes in getting a unique perspective through close-up, wide angle shooting.

Dual Linear Motors and Linear Response MF

The FE 24mm f/2.8 Lens is equipped with two linear motors for fast, precise autofocus tracking allowing you to take full advantage of the continuing rapid advances in the speed and performance of newer camera bodies. Despite instantaneous changes in subject motion, this lens delivers excellent tracking performance making it ideal for situations require tracking a moving subject. The Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. The focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise in both still and movie modes.

Additional Features

You can instantly and quickly switch between auto and manual focus, thanks to the AF/MF switch on the side of the lens. This makes operation faster and easier as you let the camera and lens focus for you or decide to take control and manually focus on the precise point you choose. The lens also features a programmable focus-hold button for multiple custom functions. This button performs the traditional function to lock focus when recomposing and can also be customized to a number of other functions depending on your needs. Additionally, the responsive manual aperture ring offers positive action that will satisfy photographers and moviemakers alike.

Sony FE 24mm F2.8 G Full-Frame Ultra-Compact G Series Lens

Sony SEL24F28G FE 24mm f/2.8 G Full-Frame Ultra-Compact G Series Lens SKU: SEL24F28G

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ‘walk around’ lens! Small, light and unobtrusive… walk-around without attracting attention to the camera. Lens has excellent optics, responsive, with a good general focal length. Can turn on/off aperture ‘clicks’ so good all-purpose photo/video lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made at the right price Good value in an excellent lens F2.8 already gives plenty of depth of field

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Prime Sony Lens [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been very pleased with my new Sony lens. The autofocus is quick and smooth. Pictures are crisp and sharp. The size of the lens is also good. It is nice and compact and fits in my bag with my other equipment. I also like the feature of being able to easily switch between manual and auto focus modes with ease. I would highly recommend this lens to anyone looking to upgrade from their own standard lenses to this prime lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality from a compact lens! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first, non G-Master lens from Sony. I was thrilled to try out the lens and was pleasantly surprised by the amazing picture quality from such a small lens! It is the perfect lens for capturing images on the go. A must have for anyone who is traveling or likes to carry around a versatile lightweight setup. I now reach for this setup over my iPhone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass a pro can be proud of [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A great mid-range lens is what Sony has come out with in the 24mm G series. This is not only a good midrange for quality but also for the price. Without going into the technical details let me explain my experience in a simple way. I have used the basic kit lens along with some APC lens in order to find a more compact solution to a full frame camera. The 24mm G series is the best one by far. When you use an inferior lens you restrict the quality and drop the capability. I feel like I have not sacrificed anything with this lens other than spending more money and even that I did not have to do. The thing that most do not talk about is the quality of the glass in a lens. Here you have a great quality and if they are not talking about it then you might want to look elsewhere if you look at other products. I have sharp images all around. If you read the tech reviews the bottom line is for a lens like this you are getting a great value, I have to agree. You get the best of most worlds. Clear image, low distortion around the edges and a compact factor that is great for landscapes and street photography. What I really love about this lens is that it is compact, full of features that you can really apply even as a novice. The compatibility of a great lens with great glass is what really stands out on this form factor. I hope that Sony continues to provide this amazing line up and adds in a broader line up. Grab it if you want to experience top notch performance as a beginner or hobbyist with out paying professional prices. Attached are several photos that show from afar and what a closeup will provide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent quality camera [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have always loved taking pictures but i always settled for cheap cameras because it was just a hobby and I did not think it was worth the investment to dish out so much money for something i may lose interest in, but i finally decided to take the plunge for a new Sony lens and I am so glad I did. This made the pictures I took so crisp and high quality and I wish I had made the commitment earlier. It is so lightweight and I love that it has settings built right into it for easy access. My favorite feature other than the portability was that it focused on the object i was taking a picture of so fast, almost instantly. If i had to pick anything bad it would be that i did have a slightly harder time doing that when it was not as bright. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, an affordable prime full frame lens! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so excited to add a full frame 24mm prime to my collection! I've been using a different prime 24mm that wasn't full frame, which was very limiting and hardly actually a wide lens once the crop was on. This lens doesn't disappoint! Unlike other lenses in this price range, this lens is very solid in construction. Even though I received this lens at a discounted price, the value at retail is huge! I received this product at a discounted price through a product testing program in exchange for my honest opinion. It's fully capable of being used completely manually, or locked into auto for the camera to control. There is a button for toggling between AF and MF. I use Sony cameras, so all the features work flawlessly. It's fairly quiet and the picture is more crisp than previous 24mms that I have owned. It's still a little soft around the edges, but it is definitely an improvement! I immediately locked in the E-Mount and used it for a green screen shoot. Using the camera sideways I was able to capture a full subject in a relatively small bedroom! It looks and works wonderfully and didn't cost an arm and a leg! I am so far very pleased and would recommend to anyone who needs crisp, wide, full frame images. Especially, videographers who are shooting interior and need 4k from their cameras!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Although small / lightweight, this lens is solidly built and features great manual controls (aperture ring, focus ring, etc.). The body seems rock solid and it is a fun and easy lens to use for everyday photography. Although designed for a full-frame sensor, I am using this lens on a Sony A6000 (APS-C), and it’s performed great so far. Sharpness is good and the bokeh is nice and smooth. Though I haven’t shot with it much yet, I can see this becoming one of my go-to lenses when I just want to get out with the camera and not haul a bunch of gear around. The lens is somewhat pricey, and there are obviously similarly positioned 3rd-party lenses that can be had for a bit less, but this little lens checks a lot of boxes optically in a lightweight, easy-to-handle package. **I purchased this product at a discounted price, in exchange for my honest appraisal of its performance.**
