Sony extends the range of lenses to a full frame with a lightweight and compact FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS that covers the wide angle to medium telephoto range.
New Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS lens (SEL24105G) is a model with E-mount, designed for full frame bodies: zoom FE 24-105 mm F4 G OSS (model SEL24105G).

Sharp also in the corners
As promised by the manufacturer, the Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS lens has excellent image sharpness even in corners , regardless of the focal length. In the whole zoom range you can also get a beautiful "bokeh" effect – soft blurring of out-of-focus images. High image quality is due to the advanced optical design with four aspherical lenses, including two extremely fine AA lenses (advanced aspherical lenses). They are combined with three strategically placed low-dispersion ED glass lenses that compensate for chromatic aberration and provide maximum resolution. The Sony Nano AR coating suppresses reflections and so. and a circular aperture for high quality "bokeh" effect – characteristic of the entire Sony G.

Once installed on one of Sony's miniature E-mounts (the latest Sony A7R III comes naturally), we have a set that gives the photographer or filmmaker a great deal of freedom. In addition to the compact design and versatile focal lengths, the new lens has a minimum focusing distance of about 38 cm. The built-in optical image stabilizer helps to produce sharp, non-self-made images .

With this advanced system and constant maximum focal length of F4 throughout the focal range, the premier glass is perfect for shooting and recording footage. The lens's versatility is further enhanced by features such as a user-defined focus button, dust and moisture resistant construction, and a fluorine-coated front lens that prevents dust, water, grease and other contaminants from settling.
