With Springtime finally kicking in to high gear on the West Coast, we took advantage of the change in weather and brought the Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM lens along with us on a couple of trips. From razor-clamming in Long Beach, WA to pounding the streets (and stairs) of San Francisco, the 24-70 G Master continued to impress us in terms of sharpness, out-of-focus rendering and overall build quality. This class of lens is a staple in many professionals' and advanced amateurs' kits; to see if it's worthy of earning a spot in yours, take a look through our updated samples gallery below.

Note: with each pair of images, the first will be processed to taste from Raw, and the second will be straight-out-of-camera. Both will have the original, uncompressed Raw file associated with them for download. 

Please do not reproduce any of these images on a website or any newsletter / magazine without prior permission (see our copyright page). We make the originals available for private users to download to their own machines for personal examination or printing, we do so in good faith, please don't abuse it.
