This compact and versatile lens is ideal for shooting landscapes, starry skies and architecture while providing extra mobility for active sports shooters who want to use ultra-wide angles. As part of Sony’s flagship G Master series lenses, it delivers outstanding image quality up to an ultra-wide 12mm angle of view with F2.8 constant aperture, combined with beautiful bokeh effects.
This new lens allows the F2.8 range of Sony’s G Master lenses to extend all the way through from 12mm to 200mm and at 12mm, offers the world’s widest zoom at F2.8. Atthis focal length, it is possible to emphasise distance and create dynamic perspectives beyond the scope of the human eye.
Three XA (extreme aspherical) elements ensure outstanding resolution in this F2.8 ultra-wide angle lens.
Along with one aspherical element, two super ED and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements deliver high corner-to-corner resolution and beautiful bokeh, making this an excellent full frame lens for landscapes and starscapes.
Beautifully smooth backgrounds
A circular 9-blade aperture creates beautiful background bokeh defocus effects with a large aperture F2.8 that is constant throughout the entire zoom range on this Sony lens.
Fast and precise
Four XD Linear (Extreme Dynamic) Motors with their complex construction deliver faster and more accurate focusing than conventional lenses for both photography and videography.
Amazing clarity and contrast
New Sony Nano AR Coating II effectively eliminates light anomalies - such as flare and ghosting.
A dust and moisture-resistant design, along with versatile controls make it ideal to use in the most difficult scenarios - both indoors and outdoors.
With an ultra-wide 12mm angle of view, create dynamic perspectives that are beyond the scope of the human eye.
