FE 24mm f/1.4 G Master

Value For Money

The Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 G Master lens is priced at £1449. In terms or marque lenses, this is highly competitive, as similar lenses might be:

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, £1419
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED, £2179
Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, £649
Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC, £529

The overall VFM looks therefore very good, despite the obviously high price tag, what we get is certainly well worth the money. For more options have a look at the Top 29 Best Sony E / FE Mount Lenses or the Top 28 Wide-angle Landscape Lenses.


Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM Verdict

There are some really excellent lenses available, and the Sony G Master range includes some of the very best. This continues with the new Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM lens, which performs impeccably and at a price level that is competitive with Canon and very much less than Nikon. There are third-party alternatives that are also very good indeed, but for those seeking the manufacturer's own lenses then this offering is very, very attractive and an obvious Editor's Choice, the high expectations that we started out with having been totally met.


Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM Pros

  • Highly corrected for central CA
  • Fast and silent AF

Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM Cons

  • High price tag
