Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Shootout @ 12mm vs Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G: Big Tree at Creek Bend

See Update on Sony A7R IV Lens Mount / Sensor Parallelism.

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist.

UPDATE: if you clicked through to this series yesterday, the main image was not shown (a crop was shown by mistake). Please look again as this has been corrected.

This shootout at 12mm compares the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM against the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G on a medium/far distance scene.

Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM Shootout @ 12mm vs Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G: Big Tree at Creek Bend

Includes images from f/2.8 through f/11 at up to full camera resolution, plus crops.

This is the extreme wide angle zoom I have been waiting for! Wide-angle fans should have no hesitation in acquiring the about $2998 Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM—it is clearly the finest 12mm lens I have yet experienced. And with a bright f/2.8 aperture and extremely low vignetting, it’s eminently flexible even for night shooting. Yet there is a lot more to be said about it, including its (world record bad?) focus shift at 14mm.

UPDATE: Many thanks to B&H Photo for expediting a Sony A7R IV to me, due October 13. With it, I can verify the 5 lenses that all appear to be “swung” on my Sony A7R IV, which is in for evaluation at Sony Pro Services. Please give B&H your business using any links from this site—they really make my work possible here! Don’t forget to use the B&H Payboo card to save sales tax in states like California.
