Sony India Announces a New FE 12–24mm f/2.8 GM Lens
The Sony FE 12–24mm f/2.8 GM is a bright and versatile zoom lens that is characterised by its broad range and bright optical design. With a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the focal length, the lens is capable of capturing images in challenging lighting conditions, as well as controlling the depth of field to isolate subject matter. Its advanced optical design includes a series of XA, aspherical, Super ED, and ED elements, which combine to reduce a variety of aberrations and distortions for a high degree of sharpness, accurate rendering, and notable colour accuracy. An updated Nano AR Coating II has also been applied, which suppresses flare and ghosting for greater contrast, especially when photographing in bright and backlit conditions. With the introduction of this lens, the f/2.8 range of Sony’s G Master series now extends all the way from 12mm to 200mm.
Complementing the optics is an XD Linear Motor system that uses four separate focusing motors to deliver quiet, precise, and fast autofocus performance. A floating focus design maintains consistent results throughout the focusing range, from 11-inches to infinity. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design and fluorine-coated front lens element to support shooting in inclement conditions. There is a built-in petal-shaped lens hood to block stray light and physically protect the front element. The lens is available at an MRP of Rs. 2,99,990.Tags: Street Photography, Wide-angle lens, Sony, Zoom Lens, documentary photography, photojournalism, sony india, Wide-angle zoom, New, FE 12-24mm/f2.8 GM, 12-24mm
