Putting The New Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G’s Versatility & Performance To The Test

The new Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G is designed for high-performance and portability, and what better way to put it to the test than by taking it around to photograph a bunch of different subjects? Jason Frankle (@worldpins) recently returned from a trip to Utah where he paired the new Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G with his Sony Alpha 7C II camera to create the perfect walkaround combination for capturing days of adventures and different scenes. “I took the Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G to the mountains, Utah State Capitol building and a butterfly garden,” he explains. “I wanted to see how it performs as a compact travel lens and test out the constant f/2.8 aperture in a variety of environments.”

His images show the true versatility of the lens, from capturing the grandeur of mountainous landscapes to those tiny details of a well-tended garden and all the architectural beauty in between and along the way. Keep reading as he shares more of his perspectives after using the lens around Utah.

Compact & Portable For Adventure

He took the Sony Alpha 7C II and Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G combination out to the mountains to see the different perspectives he could capture within the landscape scenery. “Overall, I really liked how compact and portable the lens is. The 4-inch height and 440g weight made it a great everyday carry lens when traveling and I was even able to fit it in my jacket pocket when out capturing in the mountains. I was able to photograph snowy scene at 50mm and use the f/2.8 aperture to blur the leaves in the foreground. Then I zoomed out to 24mm and pointed the lens straight up to capture trees in a forest from a unique perspective.”

Perfect For Details & Background Bokeh

The lens also features solid close-up performance across the zoom range, and Frankle wanted to test this out by capturing the details of nature inside a butterfly garden. “It has an excellent close-up focus performance which allowed me to capture all of the details of butterflies and flowers while also getting great background bokeh,” he explains. “It was great being able to capture butterflies at 4k 120p while still being able to keep sharp focus on the fast moving butterflies.”

Versatile For Exploring Streets, Architecture & Beyond

Frankle also tried the lens on street and architecture subjects. “The versatility of the lens is just what I needed when capturing architectural images at the Utah State Capitol building,” he says. “I zoomed out to a wide 24mm to capture the grandeur of the building and details in the roof artwork with corner-to-corner sharpness. I then zoomed into 50mm to get detailed shots of statues and sculptures with a soft f/2.8 bokeh.”
