Ultra Wide for Dynamic Spatial Expression

Ultra wide and versatile, the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Lens is a flexible zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example. for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, characterised by its constant f/4 maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur.. Benefitting the wide field of view is a sophisticated optical design that incorporates aspherical and low dispersion glass elements to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness and clarity. A Nano AR Coating has also been applied to individual elements to reduce surface reflections, flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. , and ghosting for greater contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). and colour fidelity when working in bright, backlit situations.

High resolution at ultra wide angles

Refined ultra wide-angle optics capture expansive scenes with outstanding resolution and clarity. Covering the widest range available in any full-frame E-mount lens, the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G zoom lens offers an unprecedented expressive potential for landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, and other expansive subjects. Refined ultra wide-angle optics capture sweeping scenes with dynamic perspectives plus outstanding resolution and clarity.


Excellent corner-to-corner resolution

Four aspherical elements in an innovative optical design effectively suppress optical aberrations that can be problematic in wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties.es. This remarkable lens achieves excellent resolution that is fully consistent with the G Lens concept throughout its zoom range.


Super ED glass improves resolution and contrast

One Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and three ED glass elements are strategically deployed to minimise chromatic aberration. Effective reduction of chromatic aberration contributes to improved sharpness and clarity throughout the image area.


Compact, lightweight and mobile

A new design significantly reduces overall length and front element size while maintaining the highest possible optical performance. And it weighs a mere 565 g.


Clarity and contrast in any light

Sony’s original Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Freedom from flare over a wide range of incident light angles provides greater framing and composing flexibility.


Fast, quiet AF for stills and movies

This lens features an advanced inner-focus mechanism driven by Sony’s Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) system for fast, accurate AF lock-on as well as smooth, quiet operation.


Fingertip control and high reliability

A customisable focus hold button that can be assigned other functions adds an extra margin fingertip control, and an AF/MF switch sets the lens’s operating mode to suit the situation. Manual mode focusing is fast and responsive with almost unnoticeable lag.


High reliability in harsh conditions

The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant for extra protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.


Advantages for movie recording

With a constant f/4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, this wide-angle camera lens for Sony makes it possible to achieve consistent exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image.. Advanced AF with outstanding speed and precision contributes to reliable subject tracking at wide angles for impressive movie perspectives.


Integrated lens hood

A built-in lens hood effectively blocks incident light that might cause flare and ghosting, maintaining optimum clarity and contrast even at the lens’s widest angles. The supplied lens cap slips right over the built-in hood.
