The Ultimate Compact Standard Zoom Lens

This compact full-frame f/2.8 standard zoom lens is a top-notch match for α-series bodies, mate. With advanced lens technology, it ensures that your camera body's performance is fully realized. The 24-50mm range is fair dinkum perfect for everyday use. You'll get outstanding G Lens resolution and bokeh across all focal lengths, and the precision AF guarantees fast, sharp focus. Whether you're snapping stills or making movies, this lens is a ripper for shooting anywhere.

Excellent Optical Performance

A Compact f/2.8 Zoom that is Ready to Go Anywhere

With a 24-50 mm range that is ideal for everyday shooting, this versatile zoom offers a large f/2.8 maximum aperture and beautiful rendering at all focal lengths in a remarkably compact, lightweight design. With the innovative FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G, you get refined large-aperture imaging performance for both stills and movies.

Superb Sharpness at Any Focal Length

An advanced optical design that includes four aspherical elements and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements delivers high resolution throughout the 24-50 mm zoom range. Flare, ghosting, and colour bleeding are effectively subdued for clear, detailed rendering.

Deep Bokeh Makes the Subject Stand Out

A maximum aperture that remains constant at f/2.8 throughout the zoom range, state-of-the-art optical design, and an 11-blade circular aperture unit all work in harmony to deliver the smooth, deep bokeh that is a hallmark of Sony's G Lens line-up. Exquisite bokeh brings subjects to the fore.

Impressive Close-Up Performance

Painstaking optical optimisation has achieved high close-up performance at all focal lengths. Maximum magnification is 0.3x (AF)/0.33x (MF) with a minimum focus distance of 0.19 m (0.63 ft) (AF)/0.18 m (0.59 ft) (MF) at the wide end of the range for superb close-up performance that, combined with compact size, makes this lens great for tabletop photography.

Superb Autofocus Performance

Af that Maximises Body Potential

Two specially optimised linear motors and a precision control system acquire focus on any subject with remarkable speed and accuracy. Tracking performance is excellent, easily keeping up with Sony's advanced model α9 III body at up to 120 fps. Precise, quiet focus is smoothly acquired and maintained even when shooting high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movies.

Compact and Lightweight Design

A Compact f/2.8 Zoom that Goes Anywhere

Even though it boasts a high-performance optical design with four aspherical elements and a large f/2.8 maximum aperture, this lens is only 7.48 cm in diameter by 9.23 cm in length. Selective use of engineering plastics enhances durability while reducing weight to just 0.440 kg for agile mobility and minimum stress during long shooting sessions.

Movie Application

f/2.8 in a Mobile Zoom is Great for Movies

Precise, quiet AF and an f/2.8 aperture in a compact, lightweight zoom can be an advantage for movies. The minimal centre of gravity shift makes this lens a good choice for gimbal or drone mounting. Combined with in-body Active Mode stabilisation, it can deliver stable handheld footage at wide angles while walking. Breathing compensation and metadata recording are supported.

High Operability and Reliability

Three Control Rings in a Compact Lens

For direct, intuitive, creative control when shooting stills and movies, this lens features a full complement of three control rings: focus, zoom, and aperture. The aperture ring click stops can be turned on or off to match the shooting situation.

Comprehensive Control

In addition to three control rings, the FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G includes a customisable focus hold button and AF/MF switch. Linear Response MF ensures immediate, intuitive manual focus control. Inner focus makes it easy to use rotatable 67 mm filters, such as variable ND types that are often used when shooting movies.

Reliable in Challenging Conditions

A dust and moisture-resistant design maximises reliability in challenging outdoor conditions, and the front element features a fluorine coating.
