Hands-on with the Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master

The Sony 24mm F1.4 is the latest lens to join the company's premium G Master lineup. It's impressively compact given its specifications, and at 445g (0.98lb), it's 200g - or almost half a pound - lighter than the Sigma 24mm F1.4 Art for DSLR cameras. It's even lighter compared to the E-mount Sigma 24mm Art lens - 335g lighter - or about half the weight.

The 24mm F1.4 balances really nicely on a Sony a7R III, with the center of gravity very close to the body. Sony claims that the short flange distance as well as the inclusion of two XA (extreme aspherical) elements help keep the lens' size down.
