Here's a photo where you can see the G more clearly

What’s interesting to me is that based on this picture it looks as though the “G” is not in the red square as G master lenses are so it’s possibly just “G” lens and not a “Master”. Which really doesn’t matter since the last “G” prime lens was the 20mm which was a great lens and I believe also had the aperture ring.
also it could very well be a pre finished factory model for testing so they didn’t care if the “Master” sticker on it was the same as other lenses either.

EDIT:

upon more inspection it actually could be the Sony 20mm 1.8 G lens but it seems odd that they would blur that out

Sorry about that! It's hard to see because I took a photo of my TV screen but it's definitely the G Master symbol with the burnt orange as opposed to the regular G.

Here's a screen shot from my computer instead where you can see the color better.

Also, it's definitely not the 20mm since that has a different minimum focus distance compared to this lens (the 20mm is .63ft, this lens is .89ft)
