Overview

The 24-105mm has always been a staple focal length for people who are looking for the “All in one” lens for Full frame bodies. Last year Sony jumped on the 24-105mm train with its 24-105mm F4 OSS for FE mount and we took it for a test run.

Aesthetic and Construction

The Sony 24-105mm is made of a premium reinforced plastic construction that is dust/moisture resistant. The zoom and focus rings are well rubberised and separated enough to be comfortable to use. The lens is quite wide with its 77mm filter thread but it’s well rounded and quite comfortable to hold. In terms of weight the lens is of a moderate weight, so it is quite easy to use this lens for a long period of time. Overall it’s a solid lens by Sony.

Performance

The lens lived up to our high expectations. The lens focuses super quick and works well with Sonys electronic focusing features. There was barely any fringing when using the lens and it handles distortion quite well at the wider spectrum of the lens. Optically this is a fantastic lens and is what you’d expect from a premium lens. In addition with the addition of OSS, it really works well with the IBIS, making it a really stable experience when shooting.

Image Quality

The images produced by this lens are amazing. Although it isn’t as sharp or as punchy as the 24-70 F2.8 GMASTER lens it produces some great quality images. Images come out quite sharp from corner to corner and the performance is consistent throughout the focal length. There is a bit of chromatic abberation as you would expect from a zoom lens however Sony have done a great job in reducing it to a minimum.

Final Thoughts

The Sony 24-105mm F4 OSS is a brilliant piece of glass but it does come at a premium (close to $2000 AUD). However if you’re looking for a lens that will give you wide angle and a bit of telephoto use for portraiture/zooming than the 24-105mm is perfect. We can see this lens being popular with travellers or people who want to just run a single lens set up. If you are looking for a versatile lens with more depth of field control than we’d recommend looking at the 24-70mm GMASTER.

Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens

Designed for versatility, the FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens from Sony is a wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom designed for E-mount mirrorless cameras. Complementing the useful range of focal lengths is a constant f/4 maximum aperture, which maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also affords increased control over depth of field. Benefitting the reach is an advanced optical design, which employs aspherical and extra-low dispersion glass elements to control color fringing, distortion, and a variety of aberrations for greater sharpness and clarity. A Nano AR Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for high contrast and color accuracy when working in harsh light.

Further adding to the versatility, this 24-105mm f/4 also incorporates an Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, and this system can pair with select cameras' sensor-shift image stabilization for even more effective blur control. Suiting both stills and video shooting, a Direct Drive Super Sonic wave AF motor, along with an internal focusing design, provides quick and quiet focusing performance as well as natural manual focus control. Additionally, this also features a weather-resistant physical construction, along with a fluorine-coated front element, to enable its use in trying weather conditions.

  • Covering a versatile wide-angle to short-telephoto range, this 24-105mm lens is designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 36-157.5mm equivalent focal length range.
  • A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
  • Four aspherical elements are featured in the optical design and two of which are designated as Advanced Aspherical elements to noticeably reduce spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness and clarity.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements are also used to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations for greater color accuracy.
  • A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • A Direct Drive Super Sonic wave AF motor and internal focus mechanism provide quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contribute to more natural, intuitive manual focus control.
  • A focus hold button and AF/MF switch are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • A dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • The front lens element features a fluorine coating to protect against smudges and dust from adhering to the glass surface.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
