Official : Sony FE 50mm f/2.5 G, FE 40mm f/2.5 G, and FE 24mm f/2.8 G Lenses

By on

Sony officially announced the FE 50mm f/2.5 G, FE 40mm f/2.5 G, and FE 24mm f/2.8 G lenses. All three lenses deliver high image quality and beautiful bokeh in a lightweight and compact design. Especially for Sony a7C if users want high image quality combined with easy mobility. Designed for Sony Full Frame E-mount system, all three lenses are the same size, almost the same weight, and the same price ($599).

The lenses were designed for a wide range of photo and video uses including portraiture, landscape, street photography.  As a set, the FE 50mm f/2.5 G, FE 40mm f/2.5 G and FE 24mm f/2.8 G deliver an ideal focal length for any shoot. From wide-angle landscapes or establishing shots on the 24mm, to a closer versatile perspective with the 40mm and a normal field of view ideal for portraits and closer shots on the 50mm.

The FE 50mm f/2.5 G, FE 40mm f/2.5 G, and FE 24mm f/2.8 G Lenses will be available in mid-to-late May for $599 each.

The lenses all measure 64 x 45mm (2.5 x 1.8 in.) and weigh between 162-174 grams (5.7-6.1 ounces). They all use aspherical elements to maintain high resolution and reduce various aberrations, while the 24mm and 50mm lenses additionally use ED (extra-low dispersion) glass to reduce chromatic aberrations and fringing. The focus groups are driven by dual linear motors for silent and nearly instantaneous autofocus in our initial impressions.

Minimum focus distances range from 0.18m (7.1″) for the 24mm to 0.31m (12.2″) for the 50mm, but increase slightly when using autofocus. The 40mm and 50mm primes have higher magnification ratios at 0.23x and 0.21x, respectively, while the 24mm maxes out at 0.19x. The filter diameter for all three is 49mm.
