A matching set of portable primes

This is one of our G Lens primes (sold separately), offering different focal lengths but the same external look, 49mm filter diameter, compact design, and layout. They're compact enough to carry all three so you're ready for great shots across a range of scenes and subjects, and the similar weight even makes gimbal rebalancing easy.

Intuitive, metal design and clear optics

The metal (aluminium) finish of the lens body and hood, plus the engraved focal length and aperture markings emphasise a superb build quality. The ultra-compact lightweight design, the high image quality of the G Lens, the aperture ring and Linear Response MF deliver intuitive operability that makes shooting a pleasure.

Compact and lightweight for constant carrying and comfortable shooting

The mechanical design takes maximum advantage of state-of-the-art optics with an effective layout of three aspherical lens elements, and the short flange back unique to mirrorless cameras, to realise stunning compactness and a weight of only 162 g (5.8 oz). The lens is ideal for shooting scenery or snaps, or movie shooting with a gimbal, or selfie shooting using the wide angle of view. Mobility is delivered by the compact design that matches both full-frame and APS-C bodies.

High corner-to-corner image quality from state-of-the-art optics

High image quality is realised by state-of-the-art optics using three aspherical elements and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element, delivering high resolution and suppressing colour fringing in all parts of the image. The aspherical elements compensate for various aberrations, delivering high resolution performance from corner to corner of the image, even from the widest aperture with shallow depth of field. The ED glass element suppresses chromatic aberration and effectively reduces colour fringing that is more likely to occur in the image periphery.

Excellent close-up performance

A minimum focus distance of 24 cm (0.79 ft) (AF) / 18 cm (0.59 ft) (MF) provides excellent close-up performance. Close-up shooting lets the subject stand out against a blurred background. With a wide 24mm angle of view, the lens is also ideal for selfie shooting with a gimbal or grip attached.

High operability and reliability in a compact design

Despite its compact size, the lens provides a focus hold button, focus mode switch, aperture ring, aperture click switch and Linear Response MF for intuitive operability and comfortable shooting. The metal (aluminium) exterior finish of the lens body and hood contributes to reliability through increased strength and durability. The design is also dust and moisture resistant, providing reliability in harsh outdoor shooting environments.
