Sony FE 12-24mm REVIEW | Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Sony a7 & a9

🔥For More Sample Images, check out my in-depth written review:

The Sony FE 12-24mm F4 is the widest zoom lens, native solution for the Sony Alpha system. 😍
I’ve tested this lens extensively, and I’ve been surprised about its sharpness and unbelievable field of view. In this video review, after talking about its features, we’ll go to New York City for the field test. 🇺🇸
If you are into landscape or architecture photography, you might consider getting this lens as it offers a truly unique perspective. 👌✨

Thanks for this review. Did you know you can use the Sony APS-C 10-18mm f4 lens on the Full-frame Sony cameras. If you use it between 12mm and 16mm (with the lens hood off) there is NO vignetting on the full frame image, really. It costs less than half the price of the 12-24mm f4. It has OSS, and you can use 62mm filters on it. I and many other pros know this “secret” and make good use of it. Cheers

The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 is really smaller and lighter than similar full frame lenses. However it is very optically inferior to the Canon 11-24mm f/4 which cost nearly twice as much. The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 has very strong barrel distortion at 12mm. The Canon 11-24mm f/4 has moderate barrel distortion and it is much sharper.
The camera internally and Lightroom can correct the disadvantages of the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4.

Sigma is better, and cheaper….sony products are over priced and their service stinks….I know cause I am a Sony shooter…..every night I pray that my Sony equipment will not need service….

Thank yoiu Alessandro and your website is great too… The lack of filter mount is likely a deal breaker for me… as defeats the portability feature for my travel needs… Going lighter but maintaining image quality was a huge reason for my switch to mirrorless, glad to see Sony addressing this issue..

Does that lens is good for astro photography? F4…..

I enjoyed your video and website. If you are recommending the 16-35mm lens as appropriate for most people, you are saying the 16-24mm range within the 12-24mm lens is also appropriate to work with. A separate 35mm lens could be purchased along with the 12-24 and the cost would be a couple hundred dollars more than the 16-35 f/2.8 GM lens (but significantly more than the 16-35mm f/4 lens), and you get the extreme 12mm focal length which is not commonly owned in such high quality and which would eventually open new creative doorways once one learns how best to use it. So yes, cost and creative possibilities have to be considered. But why play it safe and give up the unknown possibilities of the extreme wide angle?

Alessandro Abate says:

Hi Alessandro, good review. I was thinking about either the 12-24 or the 16-35 f4. Could you give me your view about the better lens between the two? Thanks a lot
