Sony announced three new high-quality, compact primes for full-frame E-mount this week; the widest of which is the 24mm F2.8 G. Optically it’s comprised of 8 elements in 7 groups, with three aspherical elements that help the lens achieve high resolving power as well as combat common aberrations, and one ED element to reduce chromatic aberrations.

To help keep the lens small, distortion is corrected digitally which, given the significant magnitude of correction, can have an impact on edge and corner sharpness. Have a look through our samples to see how the lens performs in a range of real-world scenarios. A set of aperture progressions are included at the end of the gallery.

Please note that we have used Capture One Pro 21 for these Raw conversions, since unlike Adobe Camera Raw, it corrects distortion using the embedded manufacturer-provided profile. Capture One also allows (lateral) chromatic aberration corrections to be turned off, which we have done for this gallery to make it easy for you to assess.
