Here is the first leaked image of the highly anticipated Sony FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G lens. The image reveals a noteworthy characteristic – the FE 24-50mm F2.8 G exhibits a more compact design in comparison to the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II. This strategic reduction in size not only enhances portability but also positions Sony to provide users with a standard zoom lens at F2.8 that is both more space-efficient and cost-effective. Despite this exciting glimpse, specific details regarding pricing and the lens’s release date remain undisclosed.
Evidently, Sony is poised to unveil a standard zoom lens under the “G” series that combines both compactness and affordability while maintaining a commendable F2.8 aperture. Notably, Tamron and Sigma have recently entered the market with their own budget-friendly and compact F2.8 standard zooms, commencing at 28mm and swiftly gaining traction. However, Sony diverges from this trend by opting to retain a 24mm starting point while simultaneously trimming the telephoto end, a decision that introduces an intriguing element of distinctiveness to their upcoming lens release.
