The Sony FE 24mm f/2.8 G is a portable prime characterized by its smart build and sophisticated G Series optics. The wide-angle focal length and modest maximum aperture excel in a variety of situations, such as for street, architecture, landscape, and travel, and the portable build and stylish looks make for a great go-to lens for everyday shooting. All lenses prioritize a compact profile with an emphasis on intuitive handling; each features a manual aperture ring along with other tactile controls. Three aspherical elements promote more uniform sharpness across the frame by suppressing spherical aberrations and distortions. The rounded 7-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques. Two linear motors deliver quick and accurate autofocus performance, along with capable subject tracking for working with fast-moving subjects. This AF system is also especially quiet to suit its use for cine applications. Customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings. The physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
