Product Description

The Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM (G Master) Lens (SEL2470GM) is one of the beautifully crafted G MASTER range of lenses. Full frame coverage standard zoom lens designed to compliment the Sony A7 collection of cameras, by offering stunning optical performance and speed. Suited to professional travel, portrait and event photographers. The lens combines a mid-range focal length with a bright f/2.8 aperture throughout to maintain low-light capability with consistently stunning image quality. An XA element for ultimate resolution and bokeh. The lens comes equipped with Sony's Direct Drive Super Sonic Motor (DDSSM) for smooth, accurate focusing and a focus mode switch, focus hold button, and zoom lock switch to give users complete control. Direct Drive SSM for quick and accurate auto-focus and Dust and moisture resistant. The Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM takes a filter size of 82mm.

A fast standard zoom favored for its versatility, the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM is a wide-angle to short telephoto lens designed for E-mount mirrorless cameras. Featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, this lens maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and benefits working in low-light conditions and with selective focus techniques. Complementing the apt light-gathering capabilities is an equally impressive optical design, which incorporates three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements. One of the aspherical elements features an XA (extreme aspherical) designation, ensuring its refined surface precision and notable ability to minimize spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range. Additionally, a Nano AR Coating has been applied to individual elements to significantly minimize lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. Pairing a sophisticated optical design and versatile speed, this standard zoom is well-suited for use in a wide array of environments and lighting conditions.

Featuring a Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system that provides fast, quiet AF performance as well as responsive manual focus handling. The lens is also dust- and moisture-sealed, to permit working in inclement weather conditions, and nuanced details, such as a focus hold button and rubberized control dials, further the intuitiveness in handling.

As part of Sony's G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations. With robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications. Covering wide-angle, portrait and general photography needs this standard 24-70mm zoom is designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras and is also compatible with APS-C models, where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range.

Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance from wide-angle to telephoto focal length positions and also contributes to greater selective focus control. Of the three aspherical elements incorporated in the lens design, one is an XA element with superior surface precision to effectively reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations from imagery.

One extra-low dispersion element and one Super ED element are featured in the lens design, too, and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity. A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions. A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing shallow depth of field techniques.

A Direct Drive SSM system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control. A dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

The Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM takes a filter size of 82mm, and is supplied with a dedicated ALC-SH141 lens hood

    Big, expensive, no focus breathing, superb

    Having moved from Canon some years ago I now have various Sony FF bodies including a Sony A7R M2 which is an amazing but a very unforgiving camera. Sony's sensor out resolved many of my existing Canon pro lenses which simply could not keep up, and I am continuing to replace my Canon glass with up to date native Sony lenses. The Sony 24-70mm f2.8 GM is very sharp across the whole image from wide open, outperforming my trusty Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L with Metabones adapter. The Sony 24-70mm is not a small lens but like many full frame fast lenses is hefty even on mirrorless bodies where you might expect it to be smaller. Test results have exceeded my high expectations in terms of IQ. Where this lens really shines, is that the 24-70GM does not focus breathe / focus shift at all, or practically zero. This is the only lens I have come across that offers virtually ZERO focus breathing, and I found this out by accident. This should be widely advertised, as it makes the lens very useful for videography, or in my case product photography, specifically focus stacking which this lens excels at. Other than the relatively large size of the lens, I am a very happy customer.
