Checking out the brand new 24 millimeter f one point for G.M. lenses, Sony just announced it’s small.
It’s a really lightweight, especially compared to the cannon. And it’s reasonably priced. And just like any other G.M. lands, it is sharp.
So right now, I’m shooting with the 28 f 2.8 Tamron lens, the 20th seventy five. Let’s switch over to that 24 and see what difference we see. And that’s what 24 millimeter f one point forward looks like. It is a surprising amount of blur.
Sony really made a big point about how light and small this lenses.
And you guys are seeing the specs on screen right now. It definitely is the case, but it’s even more impressive when you actually hold it in your hand compared to, say, the cannon version. And don’t take my word for it.
Just take a look at Jason bungs expression when he got his hands on these lenses.
And just like are the G masters, I expect it to be very good. They had some print side by side against the alternatives, which looked great.
The corner sharpness looked really good and they talked about using a different element and the very front, which is very hard to produce and make lenses that way. But it really helps, especially with the corners, contrast and sharpness.
Another thing that mentioned multiple times is that the manual focusing ring is linear now instead of adjusting based off of your speed. I haven’t tested it just yet, but I definitely am excited to check that out.
And.So we just shot here in the woods. We didn’t get a lot of time here just because by time we got out here, there wasn’t a lot of time left.
But I got to shoot with a 24 one for doing some cliffs for Armondo.
I’ll have his link to channel and the description. And so far, I’m impressed. Especially if you want to get a wide angle with really shallow depth of field.
It does a great job, as you guys can see in some of these shots. The tracking for the autofocus is a little slower than other Sunni lenses. So I would suggest to kick it up from normal to fast.
So now I am on a boat. We just passed Alcatraz. Sony actually invited us out here to shoot, to look at the city and just kind of enjoy the time here. As far as the lens, I did switch it from normal audio focusing to the fast audio focusing mode.
It does seem a little bit slower, especially when you’re close to the lens.
Does it mean that it sucks that audio focusing actually does a pretty good job? It’s just a little bit slower. And there’s a few other Sony lenses where I do kind of tweak it to get the performance that I need.
And in general, when you’re shooting, if you’re doing sports, you want to change your settings to match what you’re trying to do. I also played with the manual focusing rig. Now it’s linear instead of kind of depending on how fast you turn it.
Most of those other electronic lenses make it very difficult to manual focus with this one that once I got used to it, it actually did really well. Even shooting wide open at one point eight.
There’s a couple other things I wanna mention. First off, you do have a customizable a button and an aperture ring so you can select aperture on the lens itself or set it to aid that we can control it from the body.
And that is both clicked and click, which is great for video. The lens hood also locks in, which I really like, and the filter is 67 millimeter. So it’s very convenient.
That shows off how small the lenses, the minimum focusing distance is also very close and allows you to get some really interesting perspectives while having a ton of depth of field and blur. And the aperture is eleven bladed.
So you’re gonna get ultra smooth Boca. And like you guys have seen from the shots, they are very, very nice and sharp with a lot of contrast, very little distortion, if any. And I’m not seeing anyone yelling.
A F one point four with an N d filter to lower down my shutter speed.
So overall, I am very impressive, this lens and I will be buying this lens when it ships for all of the reasons I already mentioned.
And the biggest one is the fact that you can get such a wide field of view while maintaining a shallow depth of field. And it gives you such an interesting perspective that is hard to match with other cameras and lenses.
If you do night photography and you shoot the sky in stars, this lens is going to be awesome because they really showed how little sagittal flaring you get compared to all of the competition, which ends up having your stars kind of spread out vertically with this flaring and it looks much better without it.
So the Sony event is coming to an end. We have to hand off these lenses soon.
So just to wrap up my thoughts on this new lens. Honestly, I was surprised. I liked it more than I thought I would. I have the twenty eight millimeter F two lens, which is a lot less expensive optically. This one is a lot better.
It’s a lot larger and heavier, but it is really small and light for the kind of lens that it is.
Price wise, like I mentioned, is a decent price. It is expensive. But if you’re somebody was in the need for some yards wide and really fast, there’s not very many other options except for that sigma lens, which I have a used to bus.
Far as I heard a thought of opening. It is quite a bit slower and has a lot of chromatic aberration as well. So I think if you’re a Sony shooter, you’re looking at something wide and fast. This is going to be a good option. So if you guys want to see more article.
