The perfect prime
Sony have packed their finest optics into a compact and lightweight lens. It makes the Sony FE 24 mm f/1.4 GM Standard Prime Lens the perfect choice for weddings, landscape, street photography and astrophotography.
In landscapes and interiors, you'll really appreciate the sharpness in the corners the two XA (extreme aspherical) elements bring. You'll even see the difference when shooting wide open at f/1.4.
Flare and ghosting are a thing of the past – the Nano AR coating takes care of any reflections when shooting in harsh light.
Play with depth of field
A beautifully blurred background is the key to making your portraits pop. With an almost perfectly circular aperture, this lens makes weddings and portrait sessions child's play.
Sony have improved upon an old-school lens feature – the aperture ring. You can feel that reassuring click so you know how far you've gone. Alternatively, you can switch it to be smooth and silent for movies.
Assign your own functions
The focus hold button is customisable, so if you don't need to worry about subject tracking, you could use it to add grid lines for setting up landscape shots or white balance to create atmosphere.
