The 24mm G Master wide-angle lens has a large aperture range in a compact design, with a focus on achieving high resolution bokeh in line with the rest of the G Master series.
It’s the 48th addition to the Sony E-mount lens group, and has evolved to compliment the growing trend for mirrorless cameras being used in all types of photography and multimedia creation. It features professional controls for both still and movie shooting, including an aperture ring for complete control over range and manual focussing. The new lens also comes out in line with the release of their own APS-C mirrorless cameras, the a6500 and a6300.
The new optical design of the 24mm G Master achieves high resolution using 13 elements and the incorporation of two XA elements to suppress sagittal flare, making it an ideal companion for starscape photography. In addition to this, the close-up performance can reach a minimum distance of 0.24 metres while still delivering a natural bokeh, and controlling colour bleed and aberration.
The 24mm G Master will ship to Europe in October 2018 with an approximate price of £1,450.
