Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Lens Review (by LL): “It is not a G-Master, but it should be”

Kevin Raber at Luminous-Landscape published the full in-depth review of the new Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens, and he said the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens is a blast to use and it performs really well.

The 12-24 Sony lens is not a G-Master, but it should be. It passed with flying colors for the kind of work I do.  It makes shooting wide-angle fun.  I often find myself taking this lens out of the bag and just having fun with it. I have complete confidence that it will give me sharp images with good contrast and no more distortion than expected. And, I know I can use Capture One to correct for some distortion, especially keystoning.

If you have a Sony system or are thinking of getting one, make sure this lens is in your kit. The price is more than fair when compared to Nikon and Canon. The weight will make using this lens a joy. I tip my hat to Sony for making such an incredible lens that I know many shooters will thoroughly enjoy.

This Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens was announced along with FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens. Its ultra-wide 12-24mm range features cutting-edge refinements for stunning corner-to-corner G Lens resolution at all apertures, while quiet, fast, precise autofocus make it ideal for movies as well as stills.

Both the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens and Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens are now in stock and shipping at major US stores:

Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Lens: $1,698 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens: $2,198 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
