Sony’s new camera lense redefines standard zoom category

The latest camera lenses from Sony aim to set a new standard in zoom category. The FE 20-70mm F4 G (SEL2070G) boasts an ultra-wide 20-70mm zoom range in a compact, lightweight full-frame lens, with a constant F4 aperture throughout the zoom range. 

The FE 20-70mm F4 G is the perfect choice for vlogging, movie production, and still portrait and landscape shots. 

“The new concept lens has an incredible, ultra-wide zoom range from 20mm through to 70mm to ensure true versatility — perfectly designed for both still and video creators with its sophisticated imagery and high-level operability,” said Yasufumi Machitani, general manager, Digital Imaging Division, Sony Electronics Asia Pacific.

Compact and lightweight new standard zoom covers ultra-wide 20-70mm​, the FE 20-70mm F4 G weighs only 488g and is built with Sony’s latest lens design and XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors technology.​ 

The ultra-wide 20mm end of the zoom range makes it possible to maintain a wide angle of view when shooting video with a 16:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

The lens’s focus group is driven by two of Sony’s latest XD Linear Motors, providing high thrust for a fast, quiet, low-vibration focus drive. Thrust efficiency has been significantly improved over previous models, resulting in up to a 60% increase in AF speed.

Video performance

The FE 20-70mm F4 G reduces focus breathing as well as focus and axial shift when zooming to ensure that the highest quality images are captured. 

Alpha series cameras’ Active Mode image stabilization is highly effective at the ultra-wide 20 mm end of the FE 20-70mm F4 G zoom range, providing excellent image stabilization performance, whilst maintaining a wide angle of view. This can be useful for shooting smooth, stable handheld footage whilst walking.

Focus is especially critical when shooting high-resolution 4K or 8K movies. The FE 20-70mm F4 G works with Alpha series camera bodies to easily acquire accurate focus and smoothly track fast-moving subjects.

The new FE 20-70mm F4 G’s independent focus, zoom, and aperture rings feature optimized diameter, width, and positioning for full control when shooting stills as well as maximum versatility when recording video. ​

The new FE 20-70mm F4 G is priced at P75,000.
