Sony Launches Three New High-Performance G Lenses to Full-Frame Lens Series
Sony today announced three outstanding G Lenses to its impressive E-mount line-up – the FE 50mm F2.5 G (model SEL50F25G), FE 40mm F2.5 G (model SEL40F25G) and FE 24mm F2.8 G (model SEL24F28G) All three lenses deliver high image quality and beautiful bokeh in a lightweight and compact design, perfect for photographers and videographers alike who strive for standout shots and easy mobility.
When paired with a Sony full-frame camera or APS-C, all three lenses boast high resolution, intuitive operability and fast, precise and quiet autofocus capabilities. The lenses have been introduced as the perfect set for photo and video for a wide range of uses including snap shooting, portraiture and landscape shots. These three prime lenses each deliver a focal length for any shoot with the 50mm best for portraits, the 40mm optimal for still or movie snap shooting, and the 24mm ideal for landscapes. With their intuitive operability and superb build quality they are a fantastic set of three.
The three lenses are all the same size (68mm diameter x 45mm), all have the same filter diameter (49mm) and are almost all the same weight (FE 50mm F2.5 G 174g, FE 40mm F2.5 G 173g and FE 24mm F2.8 G 162g) and internal focus so lens interchange is easy – even when using a gimbal. They feature the same stylish exterior design, but focal lengths are clearly marked for quick switches. The lenses are designed to be dust and moisture resistant to ensure usability in any outdoor environment.
Despite their compact size, the lenses feature a focus hold button, focus mode switch, aperture ring, and Aperture click switch for ideal operability. With Linear Response MF, the focus ring responds precisely and linearly when focusing manually so control feels immediate and intuitive, directly reflecting the intent of the photographer and allowing delicate focus adjustments. The aluminium exterior and engraved Sony logo ensure a premium, sophisticated finish as well as increased strength and durability.
The metal (aluminium) finish of the lens body and hood, plus the engraved focal length and aperture markings emphasise a superb build quality. The ultra-compact lightweight design, the high image quality of the G Lens, the aperture ring and Linear Response MF deliver intuitive operability that makes shooting a pleasure. The Sony FE 50mm F2.5 G, FE 40mm F2.5 GandFE 24mm F2.8 Glenses will be available in April 2021 at a variety ofSony’s authorised dealers, for an estimated retail price of 79,000 yen($727).
