Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master lens review

The Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master (also known as the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM) is an absolute beast of a lens — but is it all it’s cracked up to be? We put this powerhouse lens to the test to see if it lives up to the G Master name. It’s been on the market for over two years, and it’s still the most expensive Sony zoom lens you can own, not to mention it is the first-ever lens of its kind. But who is this lens for?

This lens is perfect for anyone wanting to shoot wider — great for photojournalistic work and concerts. Being able to shoot at 12mm may not be necessary for most people. Still, the ultra-wide focal length gives you the freedom to shoot almost anything you’d like, making it incredibly versatile. If you are a full-time professional photographer and have the budget for this lens, it would be a perfect addition to your kit to use alongside a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm.
