High resolution at ultra-wide angles

Covering the widest range available in any full-frame E-mount lens, the FE 12-24mm F4 G zoom offers 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 lenses. 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 minimize chromatic aberration. Effective reduction of chromatic aberration contributes to improved sharpness and clarity throughout the image area.

Fast, quiet AF for stills and movies

While autofocus speed and precision are essential to quickly capture and reliably track the subject, quiet operation is a must for movie recording. 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.

Compact, lightweight, and mobile

A refined optical design significantly reduces the overall length of the lens barrel as well as the diameter of the front element size while maintaining the highest possible optical performance at all focal lengths and aperture settings. Compact dimensions and low 565-grams (20 oz.) weight make this lens ideal wherever portability and mobility are required.

Advantages for movie recording

With a constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, this lens makes it possible to achieve consistent exposure. Advanced AF with outstanding speed and precision contributes to reliable subject tracking at wide angles for impressive movie perspectives.

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.

Smooth, versatile operation

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.

Trusted Reviews

If you’re a Sony full-frame mirrorless user and know you can make good use of its immense field of view, the Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G will do you proud.

Amateur Photographer

The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G is a premium, ultra wide-angle zoom lens for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless Alpha 7-series and Alpha 9 cameras. It costs £1700.

Photography BLOG

The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G is a very good, if pricey, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for Sony A9/A7/A7R II/A7S full-frame cameras. It delivers excellent sharpness in the centre of the frame almost throughout the full aperture and zoom range and also performs very well at the edges of the frame too,...

Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G, Verdict:

PhotoReview

Sony’s FE 12-24mm f/4 G is an impressive performer for its category, and is quite a bit smaller and lighter than similar DSLR lenses. Nonetheless, it’s built to professional standards and comes with excellent weather sealing.

PC Magazine

The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G captures images with an incredibly wide field of view, and is much smaller and lighter than lenses for full-frame SLR systems.

The Digital Picture

What the Sony 12-24 offers to full-frame DSLR owners is a stand-out range of ultra-wide-angle of views, a range that very nicely and efficiently complements that found in most standard zoom lenses.

Camera Decision

Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G is an Auto Focus (AF) Ultra-Wideangle Zoom lens with 35mm FF max sensor coverage and it is designed to be used with Sony E mount cameras. Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G is a member of Sony's G series of lenses. Below you can see the latest lenses in this series.

OpticalLimits

The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is a bit of a surprising lens in a couple of ways. Upon first contact, you will notice how small it is compared to similar (DSLR-)offerings. It's even more obvious in term of weight (565g vs 1150g for the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 HSM ART).

Photodo

Sony's new lens is an ultra-wide zoom for full frame E mount cameras, although it can also be used on the APS-C format bodies, where it becomes an equivalent 18-36mm. In either case, this is a powerful and useful range.

I bought this lens for taking picture's in museums and other areas where it's useful to be able to take a closeup of something or to encompass the whole item at very close range. This lens is a fantastic addition to my collection and expands my capabilities of taking shots both indoors and outside,...

I have used this daily for a month now. It is light, compact, extremely sharp with only minor fall off towards the far edges - and a joy to use.

WEX

I've had this lens for one month. Works well up close. Works well in low light. I've taken handheld pictures after dark. Focuses fast and precise. Not too heavy to lug around all day. I usually hand carry my camera, and even when hanging from its leash, it doesn't feel too heavy.

Sony

I bought this for a photographic travel holiday in Asia and, with the 24 - 70mm +70 - 200mm it gives a full range of focal lengths in three lenses. It is light and sharp.

WEX

Bought this lens for flexibility on shooting wide angles. Sold off my 20f1.8 and never regret. Although the 20mm is sharper, this 12-24 has more range and purpose.

Sony

I'd been wanting this length of zoom for a while and coming from Canon I was used to the heavy glass of their equivalent lens so I was very nicely surprised when it arrived and it's so much lighter. It's optics are superb and I'm so pleased to have made the purchase.
