Create pleasing bokeh
With a rounded seven-blade diaphragm and f/4 maximum aperture – which remains constant throughout the entire zoom range – the Sony 24-70mm f4 lens allows you to create pleasing bokeh effects with this lens when employing selective focus techniques. This makes beautiful portraits achievable – as well as many other types of photos that can be enhanced by creating contrast between in focus subjects and soft background blur. Whether you’re a pro at managing your settings to get exactly the shot you want or you’re still learning how to adjust depth of field for impressive results, this lens puts it all within reach.
Stunning colour, clarity and contrast
Flaring, distortion and chromatic aberrations can be common problems with cheaper lenses. However, the Sony 24-70mm f4 lens flaunts a superior quality build that ensures minimal interference when it comes to getting great shots. Built in a design based on the Zeiss Tessar optical concept with 12 elements in 10 groups, this lens offsets such problems while remaining small and compact in size. This is thanks to five aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion glass element, as well as Zeiss T anti-reflective coatings on each lens surface. Say hello to beautiful photos!
Fast and silent AF
This Sony lens is capable of fast and accurate autofocusing performance, whether it’s a person dancing that you wish to photograph or a skateboarder completing a jump mid-air. Equipped with a linear autofocus motor and an internal focusing design, this impressive AF feature is also silent – making it ideal for video, as you can trust it won’t interfere with your audio.
Steady shooting for crisp detail
When shooting telephoto or in low-light conditions, camera shake can be problematic. To prevent blurry images in such conditions, the Sony 24-70mm f4 lens features built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation, which works to offset camera shake and ensure crisp image detail. This lens IS system can also be combined with IS systems in select cameras for even more effective control. So whether you’re shooting a portrait as the sun goes down and the light starts to fade or you’re capturing shadows and low-lit atmospheres indoors, this lens will help you get the shot you want with clarity.
Dust- and moisture-sealed protection
Every photographer wants to keep shooting to their heart’s content, without interference from the weather or varying outdoor conditions. With the Sony 24-70mm f4 lens, you can! This is thanks to the lens’s dust- and moisture-sealed design. It also flaunts rubberised control rings, which make it easier to grasp in cold temperatures. Now you can keep shooting with peace of mind, from cold nights in Tasmania to the dusty deserts of Egypt and the misty atmosphere of Niagara Falls.
