A New Sony G Master is on its Way!

  By Ryley Smith

 

Sony has announced that there is a new addition coming to the acclaimed G Master full-frame lens series! Delivering first-class image quality and beautiful bokeh in a compact and lightweight design, say hello to the Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM! With industry-leading Autofocus, this lens is perfect for a wide range of creative expressions, such as shooting landscapes, portraits and street photography, for both stills and video! 

Taking a closer look at the tech behind the FE 35mm F1.4 GM, Sony has jam-packed this compact lens with extraordinary resolution, beautiful bokeh, and precise focusing performance. Weighing in at just 524 grams (18.5 ounces), the FE 35mm F1.4 GM fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. This compact lens includes two XA (extreme aspherical) elements that effectively maintain excellent resolution throughout the image area. Additionally, it has an ED glass element and other optical refinements that help in difficult lighting by effectively suppressing chromatic aberration and purple fringing for breathtaking results.

A signature characteristic of Sony’s G Master lens lineup is, of course, beautiful bokeh! The FE 35mm F1.4 GM follows perfectly in its predecessors’ steps. With an almost circular aperture thanks to its 11-blade construction, a rare level of quality for a compact lens, contributes to its beautiful bokeh. Two innovative XA elements contribute to impressive close-ups with smooth, creamy background bokeh while the F1.4 maximum aperture allows for ultimate control and stunning bokeh when shooting both stills and video.

Now, we have to take a closer look at Autofocus! With two of Sony’s XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors in addition to state-of-the-art control algorithms, developed specifically for the XD Linear Motors, the FE 35mm F1.4 GM produces fast, smooth and silent AF performance, outstanding resolution at any distance, all while minimizing vibration and noise. 

When focusing on professional control, the FE 35mm F1.4 GM includes an aperture ring with switchable click stops, a customizable focus hold button and a focus mode switch that all support smooth, efficient operation. The focus hold button can be assigned to several other functions via a camera body menu, providing direct access to vital functions for both photographers and videographers. When mounted to an APS-C or Super 35 camera, the compact and lightweight FE 35mm F1.4 GM can be used as a standard lens, equivalent to a 52.5mm full-frame-equivalent angle of view, making it the perfect choice for creating videos. The FE 35mm F1.4 GM features a dust and moisture resistant design with a fluorine front element coating that repels water, oil and other contaminants.

The new Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM will be available in February for $1,899.99! To be the first to own this stellar G Master lens, keep an eye on our website!
