Sony has recently added another lens to their full-frame E-mount line-up. It’s Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS, a zoom lens that promises to deliver extraordinary quality. Since it covers the commonly used focal range and it has a lightweight design, it can cover different shooting occasions. Other than versatility and small weight, Sony also promises fast, quiet and accurate autofocus with this lens.

Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS features four aspherical lens elements, two of which are high precision AA (advanced aspherical) lenses. Due to three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, Sony promises minimal chromatic aberration and the ultimate resolution. It contains Sony’s Nano AR coating, which should minimize flare and ghosting. Also, they say that this lens is corner-to-corner sharp in its entire zoom range, and it produces excellent bokeh.

When it comes to the auto-focus, the Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS features Direct Drive SSM. It provides the lens with highly accurate autofocus. There’s also built-in optical image stabilization.

As for other features, this lens also contains a customizable focus hold button. Sony writes that it’s dust and moisture resistant. However, they add that they can’t guarantee full dust and moisture proof, so use the lens carefully in extreme conditions. The front element contains a fluorine coating which minimizes the dust, water, oil and other such threats.

According to Sony, this lens is “ideal for landscapes, portraits, weddings and more.” Since it covers the very common focal range and it’s lightweight, I’d have something like this in my gear bag on travels (if I were a Sony shooter). If you want to add it to your collection, Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS will ship in November 2017. The preorders start today, and the price is $1,300.
