DescriptionSony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II | New large-aperture G Master standard zoom(SEL2470GM2) The world’s smallest, lightest* standard zoom features G Master™ quality that brings out the best in advanced bodies with breathtaking rendering and ideal framing for stills and movies. The FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II is an ideal “holy trinity” standard zoom, bringing the extraordinary performance of G Master design together with the convenience of a compact, lightweight zoom design that offers maximum mobility for both stills and movies. It is an ideal addition to a compact α system that will cover a wide range of shooting situations.
The New SEL2470GM II has a great compact build. Love the reduced size and the new smooth/tight setting for the Zoom makes a big difference in hand controlled zooming. Handheld Hitchcock Zooms have never been smoother. If there’s ever just 1 lens I need in my bag, it’s this one.

The SEL2470GM II lens feels significantly lighter in hand, which is always appreciated by wedding photographers, the aperture ring is a very useful addition. The minimum focus distance improvement adds new applications to this lens, I could capture way more details using a SEL2470GM II lens. Optical performance wise, improvements are visible in the colors, contrast and sharpness, its noticeably faster in autofocus response than its predecessor as well.
My experience with the Sony SEL2470GM II was extraordinary and very special. I’ll focus on what i experienced during the shoot. The Lens is very lightweight to move freely with, specially the model holds her breath under the water for few seconds so i have to move pretty fast to take the shot from more than one angle this take us also to the fast follow focus and the focal ring. It was very helpful and it’s a good experience for me so far also am so happy with the results i couldn’t expect more.
The SEL2470GM II was very impressive to work with as fashion portrait photographer, you need a versatile lens to give you intimate feel in portrait closeups with great sharpness and the width to create a monumental shapes in avant-garde fashion without too much distortions. It’s a must to have lens on fashion portrait shoots.
To me, a quality lens with versatility is the number one attribute I am looking for. The SEL2470GM II takes all the things I loved about it’s predecessor to the next level. The fact that it is lightweight is definitely a plus as I love shooting handheld,but on a gimbal it performs fantastic as well.
