Sony FE 20-70 mm F4 G: New compact zoom lens revealed

The Sony FE 20-70 mm F4 G in detail

Sony is adding a new standard zoom lens to the popular but already aged Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70 mm F4 ZA OSS. The new Sony FE 20-70 mm F4 G also relies on a constant aperture of f4, but is said to offer significantly better image quality.

A total of 16 lenses can be accommodated in the compact lens measuring 78.7 x 99 mm for full-frame cameras such as the Sony A7R V or the compact Alpha 7C, four more than the Zeiss lens. In return, the weight only increases to 488 grams, making the new lens a compact and versatile companion.

In addition, there are just four millimeters more focal length in the wide-angle range, which makes the new SEL2070G even more versatile in its field of application. In addition, the manufacturer promises significantly better image quality.

Two AA (Advanced Aspherical) elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements simultaneously correct chromatic and spherical aberration for extreme optical performance up to the image limits of extremely wide 20 mm to 70 mm. The manufacturer demonstrates this with several sample images shot with the new lens.

A new autofocus also promises excellent results. Two powerful XD (Extreme Dynamic) linear motors are said to provide blazingly fast, quiet and stepless autofocus – in places, tracking performance is even said to have been doubled.

Focus breathing for video recording is also said to have been further minimized. The new Sony FE 20-70 mm F4 G is also protected against dust and moisture and built accordingly robust.
