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.
