Pre-order Now! Sony FE 16-35/2.8 GM and FE 12-24/4 G May 17, 2017
Pre-order Now! Sony FE 16-35/2.8 GM and FE 12-24/4 G
Sony Goes Wide with FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and 12-24mm f/4 G Lenses (Available for Pre-order on Friday)

Sony is going wide with today’s announcement of the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and FE 12-24mm f/4 G for full-frame E-mount cameras. The new GM ultra wide completes the f/2.8 "pro trinity", when paired with the 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses. However, the 12-24mm offers a great ultra-wide perspective with its ability to reach all the way down to just 12mm.

The FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM provides extreme resolution and smooth bokeh. It manages to incorporate two extreme aspherical (XA), three aspherical, and two extra-low dispersion elements. Combine this with the fast and constant f/2.8 aperture and the eleven-bladed diaphragm, and you have the high sharpness and creamy bokeh that the G Master series promises. The FE 12-24mm seem to be optimized for resolution with four aspherical elements, one Super ED element, and three ED elements. The short flange distance of the A7 series, the lens design was able to stay compact and lightweight at this ultra-wide range.

Pre-order is now available!
