The Sony FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM Lens is the worlds* widest zoom lens with a constant f2.8 aperture.
The Sony FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM Lens is the worlds* widest zoom lens with a constant f2.8 aperture. It offers an impressive view perfect for landscapes, architecture, real estate and is a good fit for professional video and sports with its f2.8 aperture and fast autofocus.
Equipped with three newly designed, high precision XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements the FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM effectively minimizes astigmatism, coma, and field curvature right out to the image edges. This is combined with three ED (extra-low dispersion) and two Super ED glass elements for exceptional resolution and superb suppression of chromatic aberrations.
Sony’s innovative XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors also play an important role, making it possible to maintain focus on moving portrait subjects, performers on stage, or similarly dynamic subjects with impressive speed, precision, and reliability, while also providing quiet, low vibration AF control.
A world-first with a constant F2.8 aperture in an ultra-wide 12-24mm lens. Equipped with three newly designed, high precision XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements effectively minimize astigmatism, coma, and field curvature right out to the image edges. This is combined with three ED (extra-low dispersion) and two Super ED glass elements, this lens offers exception resolution and superb suppression of chromatic aberrations.
The XD Linear Motors have been developed to deliver higher thrust and efficiency than conventional types in order to make the most of the evolving speed performance of current and future Sony camera bodies.
These revolutionary AF motors are used to, in particular, improve moving-subject tracking performance. This means that the full speed performance of advanced camera bodies can be applied to capturing perfect images of the most dynamic wide-angle sports or wildlife subjects with the Sony FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM Lens.
The XD Linear motors are further supported by new algorithms developed specifically for them, notably improving the motors’ response to control signals and minimizing lag and instability that can occur when driving a large aperture focus lens group for quiet, low-vibration operation.
Class-leading design results in a lens that is mobile and manageable, while lens and body sealing enhances reliability for outdoor shooting.**
A fluorine coating on the front element helps to prevent dirt and fingerprints from sticking and makes it easier to wipe these away if they do become attached to the lens surface. This is a lens that can be used with confidence in a variety of challenging outdoor conditions.
Linear Response MF provides excellent response and fine linear focus control often sought after for videography use.
This button while pressed allows you to hold the focus as its standard operation, but you can also customize the functionality in-camera via body menu depending on camera model.
The FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM lens' integrated lens hood effectively blocks off-axis light that can cause flare and ghosting or lower contrast.
Manual or autofocus can be selected via the lens without having to look away from the viewfinder.
The Sony FE 12-24mm F/2.8 GM Lens features sealing on all buttons and rings for dust and moisture resistance*. Its hybrid metal and engineered plastic construction offer high durability and low weight at 847 g.
*For 35mm full-frame interchangeable lens cameras as of July 2020
**Not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture-proof.
