  • Revolutionary wide angle beast
    Reviewed by autpops - 20 août 2020

    I think most photographers have been waiting for a lens with these specs for some time. Sony upped the game by creating the first 12-24mm f/2.8 lens EVER. I was initially a little worried about distortion and vignetting with such a wide lens, but they're both actually pretty minimal even wide open at 12mm. It should come as no surprise that this lens produces top image quality given that it's part of Sony's G Master lineup. Images are impressively sharp wide open at f/2.8 and obviously sharpness increases a bit by stopping down. Sony's new Nano AR II coating does an amazing job at removing ghosting and flares when shooting in difficult lighting. I was shocked at the clarity and contrast in my images when shooting into the sun. Astrophotography with this lens is a DREAM. There are very few lens imperfections; stars are sharp white dots from center to corners, which made me a very happy astro shooter. It's pretty incredible to be able to use a 20 second shutter speed without seeing any star trails. As a Sony Alpha Imaging Collective Member, I've been fortunate enough to use just about every G Master lens created, and this has become one of my favorites. Overall it completes my Sony G Master zoom trio from 12mm-200mm, and I highly recommend it if you're in the market for a fast, wide zoom.
