Sony 24mm f1.4 G Master: wide-eyed wide-angle is 48th Sony E-mount lens

Sony has added a 24mm f/1.4 wide-angle prime to its G Master series of lenses, designed for its A7 and A9 full-frame mirrorless cameras. This latest Sony prime takes the total number of E-mount lenses to 48.

With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, the Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM weighs in at 445g, and measures 75.4 x 92.4mm – making it significantly smaller than some rivals. Sony claims that the size makes it suitable on its crop-factor cameras, such as the Sony a6500.
