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

Until now, the most comparable option for Sony users wanting a fast 24mm was to adapt Sigma's 24mm F1.4 Art (or Canon's EF 24mm F1.4L II), or by the newly available E-mount version of the 24mm Art. The Sigma is a truly lovely lens, but even aside from the weight, the adapter pushes the center of gravity further out and it's just not as comfortable to handle as the new G Master. The same holds true for the E-mount Sigma 24/1.4, which is essentially the same length as the DSLR version with the adapter.

Remove the adapter and the two lenses are more comparable, with the G Master actually measuring 2mm longer. But the G Master's weight savings alone will make a significant difference for frequent travelers and users on all-day shoots.
