Item Description:
  • Lightweight and Compact
  • Dust and Moisture Resistant
  • Dedicated Aperture Ring
  • G-Master Design with Advanced Optics


    Sony’s latest lens technology delivers extraordinary resolution and bokeh in a compact, lightweight lens. Extraordinary AF, smooth operability, and rugged reliability add the finishing touches to this innovative large-aperture standard prime lens. Innovative optics and an F1.4 maximum aperture combine to deliver magnificent bokeh. Deep, creamy background and foreground bokeh at F1.4 are ideal for making portrait subjects stand out. Advanced features that contribute to superb bokeh quality include XA (extreme aspherical) elements that effectively prevent onion-ring bokeh, and careful optimization of spherical aberration during design and manufacture.

    • Breathtaking G Master image quality right out to the edges of the frame
    • Innovative optics and a large F1.4 aperture deliver magnificent bokeh
    • Fast, precise, quiet autofocus and tracking for stills and movies
    • Circular aperture with 11-blade iris for naturally rendered bokeh
    • Nano AR Coating II for outstanding clarity and minimized flare and ghosting
    • Support for Active Mode stabilization for stable handheld video
    • Dedicated aperture ring, click/de-click and iris lock switches
    • Instant auto/manual focus selection via AF/MF switch
    • Dust and moisture resistant design for reliability in challenging conditions
    • Compatible with 67 mm filters same as SEL24F14GM and SEL35F14GM

    G Master quality right out to the edges
    Two high-precision XA (extreme aspherical) elements effectively correct distortion and most types of aberration so that high resolution is achieved right out to the image edges. This new optical design also employs an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element to suppress chromatic aberration so that images are clear and sharp without colour bleeding.

    Unrivalled G Master bokeh
    Innovative optics and an F1.4 maximum aperture deliver magnificent bokeh. XA (extreme aspherical) elements prevent onion-ring bokeh, while spherical aberration optimisation during design and manufacture contributes to beautiful bokeh with reduced colour bleeding. An 11-blade circular aperture produces beautiful bokeh at maximum aperture.

    Nano AR Coating II for outstanding clarity
    Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II process produces a thin, uniform coating on lens surfaces, dramatically reducing internal reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. Excellent contrast and clarity are achieved even when the sun or other strong light sources are within the frame.

    Get close for eye-opening detail
    Minimum focusing distance is 0.41 meters and maximum magnification is 0.16x when AF is used (0.38 meters and 0.18x for MF), providing extra flexibility for shooting stills and movies. XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements maintain sharpness at any focusing distance, while smooth, deep bokeh at F1.4 separates the subject from the background.

    XA lens elements for compact and lightweight
    Sony’s most advanced optical technology provides superb resolution in a compact, lightweight lens. XA (extreme aspherical) elements in an innovative design, high-thrust XD linear motors, and a compact circular aperture unit work together in a large-aperture lens that is only 80.6 mm in diameter and 96.0 mm in length while weighing just 516 grams (18.3 oz.)

    Fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking
    This high-performance lens effectively maximises the speed potential of α series bodies, quickly acquiring focus on subjects even when using shallow depth of field. Sony’s high-thrust XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors and an advanced control algorithm ensure smooth, responsive focus drive for stills and movies.

    Smooth, quiet AF for movies
    XD linear motors and an advanced control algorithm optimise response to control signals so that focusing is precise and vibration is minimised for refined, quiet AF operation that can be a huge advantage when shooting movies, even at high frame rates. The breathing compensation function in compatible α series bodies is also supported 

    Intuitive manual focus control
    Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation immediately produces a corresponding change in focus, similar to the response of a mechanical focus system. Precise, intuitive control directly translates your creative ideas to impressive imagery.

    Independent aperture ring
    An aperture ring with a click ON/OFF switch offers direct, hands-on aperture control. An iris lock switch can be locked so that the aperture ring is either fixed at the “A” position, or can be manually set from F1.4 to F16. When unlocked the aperture ring can be seamlessly moved between all settings.

    Customisable focus hold button and more for advanced control
    Focus hold buttons and a focus mode switch provide extra shooting versatility. Customisable focus hold buttons in two locations can be assigned other functions from the body menus to match shooting needs. For example, the Focus Magnifier function could be assigned to these buttons so that it is available for quick focus checks while shooting. 

    Dust and moisture resistant design
    A dust and moisture resistant design provides extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

    Compatible with 67 mm filters
    This lens accepts standard 67 mm screw-on filters. Thanks to its internal focus system the front element does not rotate while focusing, facilitating the use of circular polarizing filters for landscape photography or variable ND filters for movies. The FE 24mm F1.4 GM and FE 35mm F1.4 GM lenses are also threaded for 67 mm filters, so filters can be shared.

    Fluorine front element coating
    The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants that do become attached to the lens surface.
