Two elements XA (extreme aspherical) maintain excellent resolution across the entire image, corner-to-corner, and allow weight and size to be so reduced. Two ED glass elements (Extra-low Dispersion) e one Super ED result in optical refinements that suppress chromatic aberration and ensure excellent contrast and precise rendering at any aperture.
Thanks to’maximum aperture of F1.8point light sources can be faithfully reproduced – a perfect solution for astrophotography or shooting in other dimly lit environments, without the need for extremely slow shutter speeds. When shooting in complex lighting conditions, the originaland Sony’s Nano AR Coating II technology minimizes glare and reflections.
FE 14mm F1.8 GM is capable of producing beautiful bokeh effects at F1.8, even with the ultra-wide focal length of 14mm. With a minimum focusing distance of 0.24m, the FE 14mm F1.8 GM opens up new possibilities for close-up shots and shooting and brings to life the beautiful bokeh effects typical of Sony’s premium G Master lenses. Furthermore, XA elements, 9-blade circular aperture and optimized aberration compensation allow the FE 14mm F1.8 GM to produce soft bokeh in the background, without the annoying “onion-ring” effect.
