Sony Widens the G Master Series with FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens

Sony’s formidable G Master series is about to get a whole lot wider with the release of the FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Lens. This ultra-wide-angle zoom builds upon the success of the popular FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens, boasting an even wider constant aperture, complex optical design, and lightning-fast AF. As the widest lens to join Sony’s GM lineup, it is perfect for landscapes, cityscapes, and astrophotographers in search of uncompromising image quality and performance.

The new lens’s constant f/2.8 aperture features a nine-bladed, circular design for beautiful focus falloff. It is constructed of 14 groups arranged into 17 elements. Three XA (extreme aspherical) lenses and one aspherical lens minimize distortions common to such wide lenses, such as coma, field curvature, and astigmatism. Three ED (extra-low-dispersion) and two Super ED elements manage chromatic aberration for accurate color rendering. With such a wide lens, the sun and other harsh light sources can present a challenge when shooting. Sony’s Nano AR Coating II helps to mitigate flare and ghosting by reducing internal reflections.
