Sony introduced three new G lenses earlier this year, the Sony 24mm f/2.8 G, 40mm f/2.5 G and 50mm f/2.5 G. All three lenses deliver high image quality and have an incredibly lightweight and compact design. Combine these with the Sony FX3 and you can create a dream rig for YouTubers who want to make cinematic footage on the go. In this video recent video posted to the Moment YouTube Channel, two aspiring YouTubers are equipped with the three Sony G lenses, the FX3 and a gimbal for a cinematic b-roll battle. Watch as the two are tasked with creating one-minute cinematic sequences and see more of what they had to say about the performance of Sony’s three compact G lenses below.
Two YouTube filmmakers pair the Sony FX3 with the Sony 24mm f/2.8 G, 40mm f/2.5 G and 50mm f/2.5 G lenses to see how they perform for creating a cinematic look.
“These little lenses are like miniature versions of the G Master lenses,” explains Caleb. “They’re $600 a pop. Insanely good image quality – we shot this whole video on them. And they’re lightweight and compact, so a super good option if you’re looking for some lenses for your Sony camera. They work on full-frame, they work on APS-C. And honestly, it’s like Sony heard our cries for people who want G Master and can’t afford it.”
“These are pretty fantastic to be honest,” adds Jacob. “We have the 24mm f/2.8 G, the 40mm f/2.5 G and the 50mm f/2.5 G lens. Super light, super compact. All of them have the same exact size, same exact filter. So they can be consistent to whatever rig you’re trying to build.”
He continues, “Now the benefit of having a small lens, and three lenses that are consistently the same, is that once you have it on a gimbal, you don’t have to recalibrate your gimbal because they’re the exact same size. The only thing that’s different is the focal length.”
