The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is a bit of a surprising lens in a couple of ways. Upon first contact, you will notice how small it is compared to similar (DSLR-)offerings. It's even more obvious in term of weight (565g vs 1150g for the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 HSM ART).
I'd been wanting this length of zoom for a while and coming from Canon I was used to the heavy glass of their equivalent lens so I was very nicely surprised when it arrived and it's so much lighter. It's optics are superb and I'm so pleased to have made the purchase.
I came from Nikon where one of my go to lenses was the 14-24 and have been missing it enormously when I switched to the Sony system. Now all is well and even much better because of the 12-24. This lens is amazing . I recommend to all.
The FE 12-24mm f/4 G replaced my beloved EF 14mm f/2.8L II. I started my move from Canon to Sony in August 2017. Even though my 14mm functioned very well on my Sony bodies, the adapter that I used didn't allow eye-detection and a few other focus modes that the G and GM Sony lenses can provide.
This is now my number one lens. It is spot on from 12-24mm. I am so happy Sony came out with the lens.
The pictures are looking good from what little that I used it so far , but I do like the 12-24mm range and the lens appear to be good quality .
Let me first get out of the way my only complaint: light flares.... Closer to my 10-18 Sony than my Zeiss Loxia 21. If this lens handled light flares like my Loxia, it would be a 5+ star lens.That aside this lens is in every way a huge upgrade over my Sony 10-18 f4.
I use to work with Sigma 12-24 on A mount and it was a great experience, When I switch to E mount I bought the converters from A to E mount. The Sigma keep doing a great job on my A7RII but Sony decide to launch the 12-24 native e mount and I just have to have it....
After reading many review on this lens I decided it was time to upgrade. While the 16-35 f/4 is great, the extra 4mm that this lens gives makes a world of difference. It's super sharp and I seeing this lens being my go to 99% of the time.
I found that I was able to take new photographs from new perspectives with this lens. I normally travel with the F4 24-70, and F4 70-200, so this lens added focal lengths and perspectives that I wasn't able to access before.
