NEW YORK, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- B&H is excited to announce Sony's newest additions to its G Series: the FE 24mm f/2.8 G, FE 40mm f/2.5 G, and FE 50mm f/2.5 G lenses. Incorporating many of the advanced design features of their larger G Master siblings, the ultra-compact trio delivers exceptional optical performance in a form factor ideal for everyday carry.
While designed for use with full-frame E-mount cameras, their small design makes them equally pairable with Sony's APS-C models where the 24mm becomes 36mm, 40mm becomes 64mm, and 50mm becomes 75mm. Each lens measures only 1.8" in length and weighs between 5.7 and 6.1 ounces, depending on the model. All of the lenses incorporate aspherical elements to combat spherical aberrations and distortions as well as extra-low dispersion elements to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations. A seven-bladed circular aperture helps achieve smooth, round bokeh. Complementing the versatile focal lengths of the new lenses are minimum focusing distances that benefit close-up capture. The 24mm allows you to get as close as 7.1" (manual focus)/9.4" (autofocus), the 40mm as close as 9.8" (MF)/11" (AF), and the 50mm as close as 12.2" (MF)/13.8" (AF). Two linear motors provide quick and responsive autofocusing for still capture and quiet performance when recording video.
