Sony sharpens the photography game with its new G Master lenses. Since the company began to promote its own mirror less digicam program to fans and expert photographers, people could really see how serious this organization was about this type and cameras and its lens plan has expanded significantly.
This week, with the presentation of a top quality series of lenses called G Master, Sony is lastly providing the products that photographers have been waiting all this time: 24-70 millimeter or 70-200 millimeter zooms with apertures of f/2.8.
The company still has to complete some tasks to automate the system completely, the extreme telephoto elements are not available yet, so there are other improvements to come. Nevertheless, those who purchase a Sony mirror less camera nowadays, its lens options are a lot better than those were incorporated in the previous models.
This is especially true when we take into account the solid third-party assistance from Zeiss. It is important to understand how this producer is placing the G Master on the market, since it guarantees a level of control and picture quality beyond the past G lines.
With premium-resolution cameras that challenge Sony to the max, this is a vital step for the Japanese giant if it wants to stay on top of the tech game.
The idea behind the G Master lens is actually simple: to producer lenses that will competitive with the newest and upcoming high-resolution picture sensors in similar conditions of quality, without compromising the attractive defocused places (bokeh) that encompass the in-focus subjects.
Sony knows that the secret to success in doing this is to bring a good transition from the subject to the background, so it seems that top-precision style and production will result in that. The fine shaped glass parts of the new G Master sequence are created at 0.1-micron requirements.
In addition to it, the styles are able of solving 50 line sets per mm at the minimum level and that is considerably sharper than the current 30 lp/mm standard that many producers use to classify top quality lenses.
Exactly how this results in real-world efficiency will need a tad more efforts and research. But the general opinion about the G Master lenses is generally a positive one. The lens feels light and on control, since there is only a button to toggle its focus mode between manual and automated, and a single key on one part of the device.
It does not have a stable zoom capability, but the newest series of Sony’s complete-frame mirror less systems brings the advantages of in-body picture stabilization. The pair of dedicated teleconverters will be offered for the lenses, which allow closing the gap that prevails in the telephoto world with the current FE systems.
Increasing its reach to 400 millimeters at the highest possible aperture of f/5.6 certainly will help nature photography lovers, but the modern FE devices are still competing against the lenses with high capabilities.
