Quick facts:
A new era of standard zoom performance:
No-compromise design and technology result in a constant F2.8 zoom lens that can fully utilize the potential of current and future high-resolution camera bodies. This peerless standard zoom covers a 24mm to 70mm focal length range, and is an ideal choice when ultimate image quality is required for portraits, scenery, snapshots, and more.

Extraordinary resolution and bokeh:
A newly developed XA (extreme aspherical) lens element with superlative surface precision not only contributes to stunning corner-to-corner resolution and detail throughout the zoom range, but also plays a vital role in achieving smooth, soft bokeh that can be a powerful expressive tool in a wide range of photographic situations.


Natural rendering and color:
One ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) and one Super ED glass element in an optical path that has been designed to the highest standards help to achieve lifelike, natural imagery without unnatural colouration by keeping axial and lateral chromatic aberration in check while maximizing subjective resolution for breathtaking texture and detail.

Precise focus at blazing speed:
In addition to positioning large-aperture lenses with extremely high precision for spot-on focusing, the Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) system minimizes spurious motion while an advanced control system and refined algorithms enhance AF operation speed. DDSSM is also smooth and quiet, making it advantageous for movies as well as stills.

Overview:
The new lens is built with three aspherical elements including a newly developed, extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) element that reduces aberration and delivers the ultimate resolution throughout the entire zoom range and aperture range, as well as from corner to corner of all image files. Additionally, an ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) glass element and Super ED glass element keep chromatic aberration to a minimum while maximising resolution and bokeh without any unnatural colouration.

The lens features a 9-bladed aperture that maintains a near circular shape at all settings and is coated with Sony’s original Nano AR coating to suppress reflections and ensure spectacular contrast and clarity.
The new FE24-70mm F2.8 GM lens has a direct drive SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) .

To maximise usability, the lens is dust and moisture resistant and features a compact, streamlined design that includes AF/MF switch as well as focus hold, zoom lock and hood release buttons.
Two new matching filters for the FE24-70mm F2.8 GM lens have also been introduced, including the VF-82MP MC protector and VF-82CPAM Circular PL filter.
