Breathtaking G MasterTM image quality right out to the edges of the frame.

Two high-precision XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements effectively correct distortion and most types of aberration. This new optical design also employs an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element to suppress chromatic aberration. And with our original Nano AR Coating II on lens surfaces, internal reflections that can cause flare and ghosting are dramatically reduced.


Innovative optics and a large F1.4 aperture deliver magnificent bokeh

Innovative optics and a large F1.4 maximum aperture combine to deliver magnificent bokeh. Smooth, naturally defocused background and foreground bokeh are ideal for making portrait subjects stand out from their surroundings. Advanced features that contribute to superb bokeh quality include XA (extreme aspherical) elements that reduce onion-ring bokeh and carefully controlled spherical aberration during design and manufacture.


Highly mobile, lightweight, and compact lens with incredible performance

XA (extreme aspherical) elements precisely positioned in an innovative design, high-thrust XD linear motors, and the latest compact circular aperture unit work together in a large-aperture high-resolution lens that is only 3.17” (80.6 mm) in outer diameter and 3.78” (96.0 mm) in length while weighing just 18.23 oz (516 grams). A unique blend of mobility and low-light performance makes it an ideal choice for a wide variety of photo and video uses.


Fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking for stills and movies

The lens’s focus group is driven by high-thrust XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors and an advanced control algorithm for a smooth, responsive focus drive. Noise and vibration are minimized for refined, quiet AF operation which can be a huge advantage when shooting movies. Movie subjects are smoothly captured and tracked even when shooting at 120 fps or other high frame rates. The breathing compensation function in compatible α series cameras is also supported1.


Circular aperture with 11-blade iris for naturally rendered bokeh

The deep, soft bokeh available with full-frame image sensors is further enhanced by an 11-blade circular aperture and optimally controlled spherical aberration. All of this supports the creation of impressive, memorable imagery.


Excellent close-up performance and magnification for eye-opening detail

The minimum focusing distance is 16.1” (41 cm) and the maximum magnification is 0.16x when AF is used and 15” (38 cm and 0.18x) for MF, providing extra flexibility for shooting stills and movies. XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements maintain sharpness at any focusing distance, while smooth, deep bokeh at F1.4 separates the subject from the background.


ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for precisely rendered edge detail

An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element significantly reduces flare and ghosting by taking axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration (due to differences in magnification) out of the picture. Resolution and bokeh are maximized while leaving precisely rendered edges without fringing or unnatural coloration right out to the image edges.


Nano AR Coating II for outstanding clarity and minimized flare and ghosting

Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II process produces a thin, uniform coating on lens surfaces, dramatically reducing internal reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. Excellent contrast and clarity are achieved even when the sun or other strong light sources are within the frame.


Support for Active Mode2 stabilization for stable handheld video

Active Mode2 image stabilization in α series cameras provides excellent image stabilization performance. This can be particularly useful for shooting smooth, stable handheld footage while walking.


Dedicated aperture ring, click/de-click, and iris lock switches

An aperture ring provides direct, rapid control. The aperture ring click stops can be turned ON to provide tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for smooth, silent control when shooting movies. There is also an iris lock switch that prevents the aperture ring from being accidentally moved between the [A] and F1.4 ~ F16 settings


Customizable focus hold buttons

Two customizable focus hold buttons are provided for easy access and control at most any orientation. Several alternative functions can be assigned from the camera’s menu.


Natural, linear manual focus response

Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise enough for rack focus effects when shooting movies. This feature also works effectively with the AF Assist function in the latest alpha cameras, giving creators enhanced artistic control.


Instant auto/manual focus selection

Instantly switch between auto and manual focus via an AF/MF switch on the side of the lens. This makes operation faster and easier as you let the camera and lens focus for you or decide to take control and manually focus on the precise point you choose.


Fluorine front element coating

The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.


Dust and moisture resistant3 design for reliability in challenging conditions

An updated dust and moisture-resistant design3 provide extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions. Silicon seals around buttons and switches and a rubber gasket around the lens mount greatly reduce the likelihood of dust and moisture incursion.


Front 67mm threaded for screw-on filters

This lens accepts standard 67 mm screw-on filters. Thanks to its internal focus system the front element does not rotate while focusing, facilitating the use of circular polarizing filters for landscape photography or variable ND filters for movies. The FE 24mm F1.4 GM and FE 35mm F1.4 GM lenses are also threaded for 67 mm filters, so filters can be shared.


Round-shaped, bayonet mount lens hood

Round-shaped, bayonet mount lens hood ALC-SH173 is supplied, and also available separately as an optional accessory.

Please note, all returned items must be in the condition in which they were shipped. If the items are returned in a different condition, we will not be able to accept them.

We highly recommend visiting us in person to experience our fine photographic tools before deciding which tool best fits your needs. Please note that our inventory is distributed among our three stores, and what you see online may be at any of these locations. Below are a few points that we’d like to make in order to meet your needs for in store pick up.
