It’s significantly lighter than competing lenses, such as the Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II (695g) and the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens (540 g). It’s the perfect standard zoom lens for long shooting sessions. Due to its compact nature and versatile range, you’ll find yourself reaching for this staple lens time and time again.

Versatility at Its Best

The large f/2.8 constant aperture is a thoughtful addition to the G series lineup, that many will appreciate. It allows for excellent performance in low-light situations and depth of field control. It features a dedicated aperture ring, a customizable focus hold button and AF/MF switch.

Top-Notch Optical Performance

The FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G lens promises exceptional image quality, with sharpness and clarity maintained across the entire zoom range from corner to corner. This is a lens that refuses to compromise on performance, ensuring that your photos and videos are captured with the utmost precision and detail.

Peak Autofocus Performance

With top-notch tracking capabilities, this lens seamlessly synchronizes with Sony’s α9 III camera at speeds of up to 120 fps1. Whether capturing 4K 120p or FHD 240p videos, it ensures precise and silent focusing, maintaining smooth and uninterrupted capture even at high frame rates2.

Stellar Close-up Capabilities

Thanks to some serious optical fine-tuning, this lens shines when it comes to close-up shots across all its focal lengths. You can get up to 0.3x magnification with autofocus (AF) and even a tad more, 0.33x, when you switch to manual focus (MF). Plus, with the ability to focus as close as 0.19 m (about 0.63 ft) in AF and just a smidge closer at 0.18 m (roughly 0.59 ft) in MF at the wide end, you’ll find that capturing all those intricate details is made easy.
