Sony SEL2470GM2 FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Full-Frame Constant-Aperture G-Master Standard Zoom Lens

The Sony FE 24–70 mm f/2.8 GM is an improved 'holy trinity' standard zoom lens, combining upgraded optics and AF performance in a compact, lightweight zoom that provides maximum versatility for stills and movies. It's a perfect match for high-performance compact system bodies and can handle a wide range of shooting scenarios.


Even at f/2.8, the excellent contrast at high spatial frequencies provides great resolution. Two high-precision XA (extreme aspherical) elements, two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements, two Super ED glass elements and a floating focus mechanism control chromatic aberration, astigmatism, distortion and coma at all zoom and aperture setting. For exceptional clarity, Nano ARCoating II reduces flare and ghosting.

Stunning G Master Bokeh

Thanks to superior optical design and a redesigned 11-blade aperture mechanism, f/2.8 bokeh extends across the zoom range. Bokeh is improved by precise control of spherical aberration during design and for each lens during manufacture. Onion ring bokeh is suppressed by two XA elements with 0.01-micron precision. With a maximum magnification of 0.32x, the minimum focusing distance is 0.21 metres at 24 mm and 0.30 metres at 70 mm.

Compact, Lightweight and Versatile

This lens delivers exceptional flexibility and freedom as the smallest and lightest f/2.8 24–70 mm zoom in its class. The lens is 191 grams lighter than the previous model, weighing only 695 gram. Its length has been shortened by 16 mm. Approximately 18% of the total volume has been reduced. Its impressive portability and mobility make it an excellent choice for professional or enthusiast still or movie photography in a variety of scenarios.

Fast, Precise AF and Excellent Response

Four of Sony's original XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors, a floating focus mechanism and advanced lens control achieve high AF precision. This lens has approximately 2x better tracking performance while zooming than the previous model. The lens can shoot at up to 30 frames per second when used with a compatible body. The redesigned aperture unit also contributes to high speed, allowing for full AF tracking performance even when shooting with the aperture stopped down.

Movie Features Refined for Visual Creators

For smooth, expressive movie imagery, the latest lens design technology reduces unwanted image shifts and angle-of-view variations. The XD Linear Motors improve tracking and AF performance, allowing for high-frame-rate recording of fine detail. Linear Response MF enables direct, linear focus ring response while focusing manually.

Excellent Control and Reliability in Any Environment

The upgraded dust- and moisture-resistant design adds to the durability of this lens for outdoor use in harsh situations. The front element is kept clean by a fluorine coating. A special aperture in the included lens hood allows for easy operation of circular polarising and variable ND filters (optional). For simple access and control when shooting in any orientation, two customisable focus hold buttons are provided.

Minimal Flare and Ghosting

Nano Anti-Reflective Coating II technology creates a consistent anti-reflection coating on lens surfaces, reducing flare and ghosting. Internal reflections, which can reduce clarity when shooting landscapes, sports, and a variety of other subjects, are reduced by the lens' construction.

Dedicated Aperture Ring and Iris Lock Switches

The aperture ring allows for quick and direct control. When shooting stills, the aperture ring click stops can be switched on for tactile feedback, or off for smooth, quiet operation when shooting movies. The iris lock switch that restricts the aperture ring from being accidentally moved between the [A] and F2.8~ F22 settings.
