Presenting the first leaked image of the upcoming Sony FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G lens, it becomes evident that Sony is planning to provide users with a more compact and budget-friendly standard zoom option at F2.8. A striking observation is the lens’s reduced size compared to the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II, reinforcing Sony’s strategy to cater to a broader audience by introducing a more portable alternative in the F2.8 category. As of now, details regarding the pricing and release date of this lens remain undisclosed.
The leaked image unveils Sony’s endeavor to enter the realm of compact and cost-effective “G” standard zoom lenses featuring an F2.8 aperture. Notably, in contrast to recent offerings from Tamron and Sigma that boast affordable and compact F2.8 standard zooms starting at 28mm, Sony has opted to maintain a 24mm starting point while concurrently reducing the telephoto end. This strategic decision not only distinguishes Sony from its competitors but also adds an intriguing dimension to the evolving landscape of standard zoom lenses.
