Stunning F1.4 resolution in a mobile prime lens
Unsparing application of leading-edge technology achieves refined G Master performance with consistently high resolution and soft, natural bokeh even at the widest F1.4 aperture setting. The lens is both compact and the lightest in its class, maximizing the E-mount portability advantage. It also offers a fast, precise AF drive, plus top-level control and reliability that make it an outstanding choice for professionals.
Excellent corner-to-corner resolution
Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements, one used for the front element, effectively compensate for coma, field curvature, and astigmatism that can be problems with wide-angle large-aperture optics, providing excellent corner-to-corner resolution even when shooting wide open at F1.4.
ED glass elements control colour aberration
Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements are carefully incorporated in the lens’s optical path to minimize axial and lateral chromatic aberration, maintaining optimum sharpness throughout the image.
Compact and lightweight design
A new optical design that reduces overall lens diameter by employing two XA elements, one for the front lens, combines with a newly developed DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) focus drive system to achieve a remarkably light total weight of just 445 grams (15.7 oz.). The reduced size and weight of this lens make it an ideal match for compact E-mount bodies.
State-of-the-art optical design faithfully reproduces point sources
State-of-the-art optical design incorporating two precision XA elements suppresses sagittal flare, a common aberration in large-aperture lenses. Sagittal flare is a phenomenon that results in an unnatural spreading of point light sources that appears somewhat like a bird spreading its wings and becomes more pronounced towards the image periphery. Natural reproduction of point sources is particularly important for scenes that include stars or city lights at night, for example. (1. A star shot with the FE 24mm F1.4 GM shows no sign of a sagittal flare. 2. Pronounced sagittal flare on a star shot with a conventional 24mm f1.4 lens.)
Nano AR Coating enhances flare resistance
Sony’s original Nano AR Coating technology provides an effective solution, suppressing internal reflections that can lead to flare and ghosting so that optimum contrast and clarity are achieved in the widest possible range of shooting conditions.
Easy de-click for movies
An aperture ring provides the type of immediacy and response that professionals need for both still photography and videography. A Click ON/OFF switch allows the aperture ring click stops to be engaged or disengaged as required. Engaging the click stops provides tactile feedback that can make it easier to gauge how much the ring has been adjusted by feel and is, therefore, a good choice for still photography. When the click stops are disengaged the aperture ring moves smoothly and quietly, providing seamless, silent control for moviemaking.
High reliability in harsh conditions
The focus ring feature a rubber material that makes control easy even in low temperatures, a lens hood lock button prevents unwanted detachment of the hood during transportation, and a dust and moisture resistant design enhances reliability for outdoor use.
The Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM is an outstanding wide-angle prime lens with a very fast maximum aperture, although the high asking price is certainly reflective of the performance and image quality on offer.
With a light, compact design and stellar optics, you can't ask or a better wide-angle prime lens than the Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM.

The Sony FE 24mm f1.4 G Master is a wide-angle prime lens designed for its Alpha series of full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens delivers a popular field-of-view that’s wider than 28mm without the distortion related to wider options, while the bright f1.4 focal ratio is ideal in low-light and also...
The Sony FE 24mm F/1.4 GM isn't what we'd call the perfect glass. We had to fix some issues of purple fringing and vignetting in post. Granted, they were very minimal and practically invisible to the untrained eye.
Due to the usefulness of the focal length and aperture combination, the 24mm f/1.4 prime lens is one of the most represented lenses in manufacturers' lineups and Sony's FE model entrant in this lens class is a big hit.
Sony's new super-fast prime lens is massively good but massively expensive!...
I wasn’t sure about whether it was worth spending the money on the 24mm f1.4 GM lens. Having used it for a couple of weeks I am really delighted with the lens. Love the sharpness, love the autofocus performance. It is very light for a F1.4 lens.
First Sony lens I've brought in my life over 30 years photography what a beautiful piece of engineering so beautiful to behold the size is incredible the sheer quality of the images is sublime a true lens to keep for years brought for landscapes but so useful for so many projects just simply...
Although I prefer a more long term usage before making judgments. All I can say for now is that this lens could probably be the best lens purchase I’ve ever made and I used a lot of premium lenses from most brands. Small and lightweight and so sharp wide open. Just buy it it’s just amazing.

Bought this to try out Astro and use as a walk around lens it’s really easy to get good shots and I’m sure with practise they will great shots there was a bit of focus issues at first but I think that was user error and now I use spot focusing I’m getting better results.
This lens was the first that I purchased for my Sony A7S III. It made a short list as the reviews were all very positive. After receiving my unit i understood why. This wide and fast lens is versatile, clean while not being sterile. It has character while producing excellent image quality.
After toying between this and a 16-35 I am very pleased with my choice. It’s the sharpest lens I’m yet to use and the 1.4 shallow depth is absolutely bokehlicious. It’s a beautifully crafted lens and feels good in the hand and on the camera.
