Ultra Wide for Dynamic Spatial Expression

This compact 12-24mm ultra wide-angle zoom lens features the shortest focal lengths available in any full-frame E-mount lens, with stunning corner-to-corner G Lens resolution at all apertures. It is an excellent choice for dynamic landscape and architecture photography. Outstanding mobility and quiet, fast, precise autofocus make it ideal for shooting movies as well as stills.

High Resolution at Ultra Wide Angles

Refined ultra wide-angle optics capture expansive scenes with outstanding resolution and clarity.

Compact, Lightweight and Mobile

A new design significantly reduces overall length and front element size while maintaining the highest possible optical performance. And it weighs a mere 565 grams (20 oz.).

Fast, Quiet AF for Stills and Movies

This lens features an advanced inner-focus mechanism driven by Sony’s Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) system for fast, accurate AF lock-on as well as smooth, quiet operation.

Fingertip Control and High Reliability

A customisable focus hold button provides extra control versatility, while dust and moisture resistant1 design means reliable operation even in challenging conditions.

Excellent Corner-to-Corner Resolution

Four aspherical elements in an innovative optical design effectively suppress optical aberrations that can be problematic in wide-angle lenses. This remarkable lens achieves excellent resolution that is fully consistent with the G Lens concept throughout its zoom range.

Super ED Glass Improves Resolution and Contrast

One Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and three ED glass elements are strategically deployed to minimize chromatic aberration. Effective reduction of chromatic aberration contributes to improved sharpness and clarity throughout the image area.

Clarity and Contrast in any Light

Sony’s original Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Freedom from flare over a wide range of incident light angles provides greater framing and composing flexibility.

Advantages for Movie Recording

With a constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range this lens makes it possible to achieve consistent exposure. Advanced AF with outstanding speed and precision contributes to reliable subject tracking at wide angles for impressive movie perspectives.

Smooth, Versatile Operation

A customisable focus hold button that can be assigned other functions adds an extra margin fingertip control, and an AF/MF switch sets the lens’s operating mode to suit the situation. Manual mode focusing is fast and responsive with almost unnoticeable lag.

High Reliability in Harsh Conditions

The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant2 for extra protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.

Integrated Lens Hood

A built-in lens hood effectively blocks incident light that might cause flare and ghosting, maintaining optimum clarity and contrast even at the lens’s widest angles. The supplied lens cap slips right over the built-in hood.

Lens Configuration

Impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist’s vision.
