Sony 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master Wins Imaging Resource's Best Wide Angle Zoom Of 2020

The Sony 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master takes home the Imaging Resource award for Best Wide Angle Zoom of 2020.

“Sony finished up their f/2.8 zoom lens trinity this year with a very impressive ultra-wide-angle zoom, the FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM. This new G Master lens offers not only a bright f/2.8 aperture but also a super-wide 12-24mm focal length range. With that combo, it's the world's only full-frame format 12-24mm lens with a constant f/2.8 aperture. With an ultra-wide perspective, the 12-24mm is a no-brainer for landscapers looking for that dramatic perspective, while the f/2.8 aperture makes it an excellent option for astrophotographers and low-light uses. Plus, it's AF system is also swift enough to handle action subjects -- should you be willing to get up close and personal.”

Sony 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master wins Imaging Resource's Best Wide Angle Zoom of 2020.

“As is typical with Sony G Master lenses, the 12-24mm f/2.8 is a top-of-the-line lens with weather-sealed build quality, impressive optical quality, and super-fast AF performance. In the field, the Sony 12-24mm certainly doesn't disappoint when it comes to image quality. Images are tack-sharp, even wide open and across the frame, which is no small feat for a lens that goes this wide. Build quality and AF performance are also excellent, which we've come to expect from G Master lenses. Unfortunately, the lens is not cheap, with an MSRP of $3,000, but with quality comes a price.”
