Product Details

The Compact, Ultra-Wide Angle, Large Aperture FE 14mm F1.8 G Master Prime

Another addition to Sony’s E-mount Lens Lineup Offers Extraordinary Resolution, Quiet Autofocus Capabilities, Beautiful Bokeh and More

Sony further expands its E-mount lens lineup with the introduction of the FE 14mm F1.8 GM (modelSEL14F18GM) – a compact, large F1.8 aperture, ultra-wide-angle lens that allows users to capture the world with new perspectives, especially when shooting landscapes, architecture, starry skies and interiors.

Key Features

  • INCREDIBLY SHARP: Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements along with two ED (Extra-Low dispersion), one Super ED and one aspherical element ensure outstanding resolution in this F1.8 prime lens delivering high corner-to-corner resolution and beautiful bokeh, making this an excellent full-frame lens for landscapes, starscapes, portraits and videography.
  • BEAUTIFULLY SMOOTH BACKGROUNDS: A circular 9-blade aperture on this 14mm lens creates beautiful circular background bokeh defocus effects with a large F1.8 aperture.
  • AMAZING CLARITY AND CONTRAST: Even under strong sunlight and backlighting, Sony’s new Nano AR Coating II is evenly applied to the element surface, effectively minimising internal reflections so that flare and ghosting do not occur when using this FE lens as a landscape lens, lens for astrophotography, or in other light-sensitive shooting scenarios.
  • FAST AND PRECISE: Two XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors with their complex construction deliver faster and more accurate focusing than conventional lenses for both photography and videography. You won't miss a shot on this large-aperture wide-angle lens.
  • PROFESSIONAL ERGONOMICS: A dust and moisture resistant design, along with versatile controls on this Sony prime lens makes it ideal to use in the most difficult scenarios - both indoors and outdoors.
  • DYNAMIC PERSPECTIVES: The SEL14F18GM Sony lens offers excellent close-up performance with a wide-angle of view.

Extraordinary Resolution in a Compact and Lightweight Design 

The new FE 14mm F1.8 GM features a compact optical design, measuring just 3⅜ in x 4 in and weighing just 16.3 oz, with advanced optical technology that delivers superb resolution and stunning contrast. Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements maintain excellent resolution throughout the image area even at corners, which enables its compact and lightweight design. Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element result in optical refinements that suppress chromatic aberration and deliver excellent contrast and precise rendering at all apertures. 

Users can faithfully render light point sources thanks to a maximum aperture of F1.8, making it possible to capture astrophotography or shoot in other low light environments without having to use extremely slow shutter speeds. When shooting in challenging lighting conditions, Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II technology maximises clarity by subduing flare and ghosting. 

The FE 14mm F1.8 GM can produce beautiful bokeh at F1.8, even with the ultra-wide 14mm focal length. With a 9.8-inch minimum focus distance, the FE 14mm F1.8 GM offers expanded possibilities for close-up still and video shooting and creates stunning bokeh known to Sony’s G Master premium series of lenses. In addition, its precise XA elements, a 9-blade circular

aperture mechanism and optimally managed aberration allow the FE 14mm F1.8 GM to produce exquisite background bokeh without the undesirable onion-ring effect. 

Advanced and Quiet Autofocus 

Using two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors, focus can be accurately acquired and maintained even when shooting with narrow depth of field at F1.8, giving professional shooters the reliability they need to get the job done in challenging conditions. Moreover, the FE 14mm F1.8 GM enables quiet AF with minimal vibration for smooth focus transitions, perfect for video content creation. 

Professional Level Control and Reliability 

The new lens also features several advanced and versatile control options including, a focus hold button, a focus mode switch and a focus ring to ensure smooth, efficient operation in a wide range of shooting environments. For added customisation, a number of functions can be assigned to the focus hold button from the camera body interface. The FE 14mm F1.8 GM also features Linear Response MF for direct and precise manual focusing. An aperture ring that allows intuitive aperture control is also included. For added creative freedom, the FE 14mm F1.8 GM includes a rear filter holder that accepts standard sheet-type filters for ND, colour correction, soft filter, etc. 

A dust and moisture resistant design provides the reliability needed for challenging conditions. The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants. The rear element is also

fluorine-coated to keep that surface clean when changing the rear filter. The lens also has a built-in petal hood that effectively blocks extraneous light that can cause flare and ghosting.

Of course it doesn't mean we are going to carp only. Optics specialists who constructed the Sony FE 14 mm f/1.8 GM tried to combine unique parameters, relatively small dimensions, and low weight – the result is, I admit, very impressive.

ePHOTOzine

If you love ultra-wide lenses, then this could well be the one that will hit the spot. The dynamic compositions that are possible are unique to this type of optic, and on top of that, we have an absolutely superb optical performance, far in excess of what the first lenses that I have mentioned were...

PhotoReview

Photographers looking for an ultra-wide prime lens for their Sony full-frame camera should give this lens serious consideration. For the subject types it has been designed to shoot, it represents excellent performance and handling at a competitive price.

PC Magazine

The Sony FE 14mm F1.8 GM lens captures ultra-wide photos with a bright aperture to defocus backgrounds. It's smaller than a zoom, a plus for use on drones and gimbals.

Camera Labs

The Sony FE 14mm f1.8 G Master is a unique lens: their widest prime to date and sharing the honour of joint-brightest 14mm with the similarly-priced Sigma 14 1.8 Art. But unlike the Sigma, the Sony is a native mirrorless design that’s not only smaller, but less than half the weight, making it not...

The Digital Picture

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM is one of those lenses that make one grateful to be photographing at this time. Those photographing architecture, real estate, large products, or other subjects in a confined space, those photographing the great outdoors, including landscape and night sky photography, and...

EISA

This extremely compact wide-aperture ultra-wideangle prime lens combines Sony’s latest optical design achievements and manufacturing techniques into a rectilinear 14mm f/1.8 lens that is as easy to carry in the field as it is to use in studio.

Purchased for architectural and streetscape photography. For a lot of my building photography I use an adapted Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens (using tilt only), but in tight spaces I needed a wider lens and I decided to try the wider Sony 14mm as a compromise rather than purchase the Canon 17mm t/s...

I bought this three weeks ago and tried to take some city snapshot photos in HK. The lens coverage is good and only require a few steps forward or backwards to adjust. Happy with the lens performance. Besides, the size and weight of the lens are good and easy to carry.

WEX

This lens blows away all others in being super wide, nicely rectilinear, compact, and stunning in image quality. Brilliant for astrophotography, architecture, and interesting street photos.

WEX

Love the wide angle. Captures so much of the scene. You can use it for portraits too but remember to place your subject nowhere near the edges of the frame or there will be distortion.

14mm Ultra Wide Lens; a specialty lens! This lens is way more versatile than that. Its close focus, and ultra close focus on an extension tube, no real lack of detail or contrast even when shooting directly toward the sun, brilliant colours, auto focus and wide aperture make this lens something...
