24-105mm f/4 G OSS FE
Wide-angle to Short-Telephoto Zoom Lens
A versatile wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom lens, the FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS lens from Sony is designed for use with their E-mount mirrorless cameras, and is also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 36-157.5mm equivalent focal length range. Featuring a constant maximum aperture of f/4, it offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and is well-suited to working with shallow depth of field techniques.
The optical design uses four aspherical elements, two of which are Advanced Aspherical, and three extra-low dispersion glass elements to ensure impressive sharpness and clarity. A Nano AR Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour fidelity when working in harsh lighting conditions, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to an attractive out of focus bokeh quality.
This is complimented by an Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation system that works to minimise the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This system is also compatible with select cameras' sensor-shift image stabilisation for even more effective control.
Ideal for both still and video shooting, autofocus is quick and quiet thanks to a Direct Drive Super Sonic wave AF motor with an internal focusing design, and manual focus control is also available. The lens barrel features both a focus hold button and a AF/MF switch for rapid control. There is also a rubberised control ring that makes handling easier in colder temperatures, and a fluorine coating on the front lens element helps to prevent smudges and dust from adhering to the glass surface. It is finished with a dust and weather-resistant physical construction for peace of mind when working in difficult weather conditions.
