Sony 12-24mm f/4 G – Announcement
Sony just announced the 12-24mm f/4 G lens. Not a G Master, just the standard G.
I’m actually pretty keen on this lens as I do real-estate photography and the idea of shooting my Sony A7S would be great with this lens. Not because I need low-light, but because the A7S is only 12mp which is much more manageable for churning out loads of images for web use.
This combination has served me well for years and the Sigma is sufficiently sharp. However, this new Sony lens is touted to be very sharp and is a little lighter than the competition.
If mounted to a Sony Mirrorless body, it will definitely be a lighter combo!

Personally I’m happy with this announcement as I love wide angle photography. Some say 12mm is ‘too wide’ for any sort of work, especially real-estate. I’m the type of person that says you can’t go wide enough! The extra width is great for a variety of reasons and there is a fine art to shooting with wide angle lenses.
I’ll be keeping my eye out on this lens for sure!
Most likely I’ll be selling my 16-35mm for this! Any buyers, get in touch 😉
