The FE 24mm F2.8 G lens has clear advantages for moviemaking. With a wide 24mm angle of view on full-frame bodies and 36mm on APS-C bodies or Super 35mm cameras, dual linear motors for fast, precise autofocus and tracking, a bright F2.8 maximum aperture for beautifully defocused background bokeh, excellent close-up performance, and a class-leading ultra-compact and lightweight design, this lens is ideal for all types of content creators. In addition to the super small size and lightweight, its internal focus design makes it convenient for use on compact gimbals or grips for vlogging and other applications.
The FE 24mm F2.8 G incorporates an ED glass element to suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduces color fringing that is more likely to occur in the image periphery, leaving precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration, while significantly reducing flare and ghosting.
While conventional aperture blades have flat sides that create unappealing, polygonal-shaped defocused points of light, the FE 24mm F2.8 G incorporates a 7-blade circular aperture mechanism to maximizes the beauty of this large-aperture prime-lens. The wide f2.8 aperture and circular aperture blades contribute to impressive images in which the subject stands out against a smoothly defocused foreground and background, as well as perfectly round points of defocused light.
Taking full advantage of the continuing rapid advances in the speed and performance of newer camera bodies, two linear motors are used in the FE 24mm F2.8 G lens to deliver fast, precise AF (autofocus) with excellent tracking performance. Tracking is maintained despite instantaneous changes in subject motion, making the lens ideal for situations that require tracking a moving subject.
Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise in both still and movie modes.
