Sony has unveiled the FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (SEL2450G) for its Alpha line of cameras, designed for 35mm full-frame compatibility. It boasts a compact design with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, a maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, a length of 92.3 mm, and a weight of approximately 440 grams.

Its optical design, featuring four aspherical lenses and two Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass pieces, minimizes aberrations (which cause fringing). The lens incorporates an 11-blade circular aperture for soft and smooth bokeh – a characteristic of the G Lens – and offers a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m at the wide end with 0.30x magnification.

For its autofocus, the lens comes equipped with two linear motors, which “achieves high-speed, high-precision, high-tracking, and quiet focusing.” It supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking, reaching up to 120 frames per second on the Alpha 9 III. It also supports AF tracking for 4K 120FPS or FHD 240FPS movie recording and features in-body Active Mode image stabilization for steady walking shots. It also supports focus breathing compensation for further stabilization.

The lens also comes with linear response MF for intuitive controls; it includes user-friendly features such as a customizable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and a focus mode switch. The lens is designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating to prevent dirt from sticking to the front surface.

The FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (SEL2450G) will be available in Malaysia starting mid-April 2024, with a suggested retail price of RM5,699.
