Here is the first leaked image of the upcoming Sony FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G lens. This image shows that the FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is more compact than the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II, allowing Sony to offer users a more compact and cheaper standard zoom at F2.8. This strategic design choice not only enhances portability but also positions Sony to provide users with a more compact and cost-effective standard zoom option, all while maintaining a fast F2.8 aperture. Despite this promising revelation, specific details regarding pricing and the release date are currently shrouded in mystery.
It appears that Sony is poised to enter the market with a standard zoom lens under the “G” series that is both compact and budget-friendly, sporting a commendable F2.8 aperture. This move aligns with recent trends seen in the photography industry, where both Tamron and Sigma have successfully introduced economical and compact F2.8 standard zoom lenses, commencing at 28mm. Notably, Sony has opted for a distinctive approach, maintaining a wider 24mm starting point and strategically trimming the telephoto end. This divergence from the norm adds an intriguing dimension to Sony’s lens strategy, setting it apart in a market where versatility and affordability are increasingly valued by photographers.
