If wide angles are what you're looking for, the Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens can provide just that. This Sony G Master Series Lens is ideal for capturing landscapes, architectural wonders, and astronomical bodies. Its f/1.8 maximum aperture ensures that images remain bright despite low-light conditions or adjusted depth of field. The lens has one super ED element and two extra-low dispersion elements to limit chromatic aberrations. Meanwhile, the two XA elements maintain image sharpness and clarity by reducing spherical aberrations.
Ghosting and flaring are reduced by the Nano AR II Coating to improve colour accuracy and contrast especially during moments of intense lighting. Likewise, the two motors of the XD Linear Motor System generates quick focusing without distracting noise. This Sony ultra-wide lens also has a fluorine coating to repel dust and moisture. While its 9.8-inch minimum focusing distance reveals stunning close-up frames, its nine-blade circular aperture also delivers amazing bokeh effects. With the Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens, you can capture a bigger scope and more subjects in every shot.
Product Features in Detail
Combining the best optical elements for truly outstanding results
Another engineering feat has been achieved with the ultra-wide 14mm G Master. Two XA (Extreme Aspherical) and one aspherical lens deliver supreme optical performance, with corner sharpness not seen in other ultra-wide-angle lenses. Excellent contrast and precise rendering is achieved by utilizing Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and two ED glass elements that effectively suppress chromatic aberration. The advanced optics deployed also minimises coma, astigmatism, and sagittal flare for unparalleled performance.
Ultra-wide angle of view in a remarkably compact lens
Every component of the 14mm F1.8 G Master is designed to ensure maximum results in a remarkably compact and lightweight lens. The three aspherical lenses, two compact XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear AF Motors, maximising the benefits of the short mirrorless flange back distance, all contributed to achieving the ultrawide large-aperture performance with no compromises. This increased mobility makes the 14mm ideal for outdoor shooting and movie shooting using a gimbal. With an incredible minimum focus distance of 0.25m, combining this with the unique ultra-wide 14mm angle offers expanded possibilities for close-up stills or movie shooting.
Control and reliability for a wide range of applications
Maintaining the G Master standard of lens design and reliability, the 14mm F1.8 G Master is constructed from a combination of metal and engineering plastic for high durability and low weight. At 460 grams and measuring under 10 centimeters, the lens is built to travel easily and balance perfectly onto a gimbal unit. Additionally, the 14mm F1.8 has a fluorine coating on the front element which helps to prevent fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants, and built with a dust and moisture resistant design for extra protection and reliable operation.
Fast, precise, and quiet autofocus for stills and movies
Two XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors are optimized specifically for the 14mm F1.8 G Master to provide the thrust efficiency required to precisely position the lens’s large focus groups while maintaining near-silent operational noise. The lens’s advanced mechanical system enables smooth and quiet focus transitions with minimal vibrations, especially crucial when filming video content. Additionally, the 14mm GM also supports Linear Response Manual Focus which delivers incredible precision when performing repeatable movements in Manual Focus.
Beautifully rendered night skies
Advanced optics with a high-curvature XA (extreme aspherical) front element minimize sagittal flare when shooting starry skies and other night scenes. The large F1.8 maximum aperture allows low-light shooting without having to use extremely slow shutter speeds, while compact dimensions let you shoot anywhere with ease.
Clear, bleed-free color
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that are effective in correcting for chromatic aberration are combined with a Super ED glass element that provides even stronger chromatic compensation for excellent contrast and precise rendering throughout the image area.
Dynamic close-ups with beautiful bokeh
Two XA elements and one aspherical element in a carefully designed optical system offer a minimum focus distance of just 0.25m, so you can move right in to shoot dynamic close-ups while taking advantage of the F1.8 maximum aperture to create extraordinarily beautiful background bokeh.
Nano AR Coating II maximizes clarity
The sun often ends up in difficult positions when shooting outdoors with an ultra-wide lens, sometimes causing unwanted flare and ghosting. Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II technology produces a uniform anti-reflection coating on lens surfaces, effectively subduing flare and ghosting in tricky lighting conditions.
Precise, quiet AF for stills and movies
Two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors rapidly and precisely position this lens’s large, heavy focus groups for fast, accurate, quiet AF performance that maximizes the speed potential of E-mount bodies. Quiet, low-vibration AF is a huge advantage when shooting movies, while compact mobility and fast response provide unrestrained creative freedom.
Intuitive manual focus control
Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, similar to the response of a mechanical focus system. Control is immediate and precise, so your creative intent is manifest without delay.
Customizable focus hold button
A variety of functions can be assigned to the lens’s focus hold button from the camera body interface to suit individual shooting preferences. You could assign the Focus Magnifier function, for example, allowing fingertip control of focus magnification for pinpoint manual focus.
Aperture ring with click-stop switch
An aperture ring that allows intuitive aperture control is provided, with click stops that can be switched on or off as needed. Turn the click stops on for tactile feedback that lets you “feel” the stops, or off when smooth, continuous, silent aperture control supported by the lens’s XD Linear Motors is required.
Outstanding reliability for any application
In addition to a fluorine coating on the front element that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, the rear element is also fluorine-coated to keep that surface clean when changing the rear filter. A dust and moisture resistant design maximizes reliability when using this large-aperture ultra-wide-angle lens in challenging outdoor conditions.
