Expanded Sony FE 24mm f2.8 G Lens Key Features:
The complex and advanced lens structure of the Sony FE 24mm f2.8 G is what enables the capture of such detail- and clarity-rich images and videos.

Together with the likes of Sony A7 III Digital Camera Body, precision subject tracking is ensured even with instantaneous movements from your subject or between scenes.

What is this lens best used for?
The lens has a wide 24mm field of view which makes it ideal for many different applications e.g. landscape, street, architecture and astrophotography. The advance dual linear autofocus motors and overall lightweight and compact frame makes this lens as suitable for stills as it is for video capture. Finally, the bright maximum f2.8 aperture lends itself to low-light shooting.
What is the difference between the Sony G lens range and the Sony G-Master range?
The Sony G lenses (or Gold line) were Sony's first premium range of lenses specific to Sony Alpha cameras - white ‘G' on a black square. They prioritise high-quality materials, increased sharpness, smooth bokeh, and a fast, constant aperture. The more recent GM (Gold Master) lenses can then be physically differentiated by the white ‘G' on an orange square. By expanding their G lens line, Sony are putting more emphasis on accessibility and variation - supplying pro-level lenses to freelance photographers/videographers, mid-level image-makers, and hobbyists alike.
