Versatile Sony full-frame zoom
SONY has announced the FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS, a weather-sealed standard zoom that it claims is the lightest in its class. Weighing 663g, the new lens promises high image quality due to the inclusion of four aspherical lens elements, two of which are high precision advanced aspherical (AA) lenses. Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements are also used to help minimise chromatic aberration. Its Nano AR coating minimises flare, while a circular aperture gives attractive bokeh. Autofocus is driven by Sony’s Direct Drive SSM system, and in common with other G-series lenses, Sony has included a focus-hold button on the side of the barrel. Optical image stabilisation is also built in, promising sharper handheld shots.
As a member of Sony’s G line, the 24-105mm lens is designed to deliver excellent sharpness while also producing beautifully rendered ‘bokeh’ or background blur. This should make it a versatile option for landscapes, portraits or weddings. The new Sony lens is due to go on sale this month, priced around £1,200.
