The Sony 14mm F1.8 Ultra-Wide GM Lens is a fast, versatile lens well-suited to landscape, nature, architectural, and astrophotography applications. Its extremely wide-but-usable perspective is complemented by the f/1.8 maximum aperture for excellent performance in low-light conditions and increased control over depth of field.

The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements and one super ED element to reduce chromatic aberrations, plus two XA (extreme aspherical) elements that significantly control spherical aberrations for a high degree of image sharpness and clarity. A Nano AR II coating has been applied to limit ghosting and lens flare for increased contrast and colour fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

An XD Linear Motor system uses two separate motors to provide quick and quiet focus, and also lends more responsive control for manual focus operation. A minimum focus of just 25cm and an ultra-wide field of view opens a new world of deep perspective close-up photography. Also, the lens features a dust- and moisture-sealed design and fluorine-coated outer elements to support shooting in inclement conditions.

A Remarkably Compact Ultra-wide Angle Lens

Every component of the 14mm F1.8 G Master is designed to ensure maximum results in a remarkably compact and lightweight lens. The three aspherical lenses, two compact XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear AF Motors, maximising the benefits of the short mirrorless flange back distance, all contributed to achieving the ultrawide large-aperture performance with no compromises. This increased mobility makes the 14mm ideal for outdoor shooting and movie shooting using a gimbal. With an incredible minimum focus distance of 0.25m, combining this with the unique ultra-wide 14mm angle offers expanded possibilities for close-up stills or movie shooting.

  • Two XA (Extreme Aspherical) and one aspherical lens delivers supreme optical performance, with corner sharpness not seen in other ultra-wide angle lenses.
  • Excellent contrast and precise rendering is achieved by utilizing a Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements.
  • Two ED glass elements which effectively suppress chromatic aberration.
  • Unparalleled performance with minimal coma, astigmatism, and sagittal flare.

Two XD Linear Autofocus Motors | Fast, precise, and quiet autofocus for stills and movies

Two XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors are optimized specifically for the 14mm F1.8 G Master to provide the thrust efficiency required to precisely position the lens’s large focus groups, while maintaining near-silent operational noise.

The lens’s advanced mechanical system enables smooth and quiet focus transitions with minimal vibrations, especially crucial when filming video content. Additionally, the 14mm GM also supports Linear Response Manual Focus which delivers incredible precision when performing repeatable movements in Manual Focus.

G Master Construction

Maintaining the G Master standard of lens design and reliability, the 14mm F1.8 G Master is constructed from a combination of metal and engineering plastic for high durability and low weight. At 460 grams and measuring under 10 centimeters, the lens is built to travel easily and balance perfectly onto a gimbal unit. Additionally, the 14mm F1.8 has fluorine coating on the front element which helps to prevent fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants, and built with a dust and moisture resistant design for extra protection and reliable operation.

  • Designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.
  • Robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs benefit both photography and cine applications.
  • Versatile ultra wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras
  • Notably fast f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions
  • Two XA (extreme aspherical) elements, and one standard aspherical element, are incorporated into the optical design, which features superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, distortion and other spherical aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • One Super ED element and two extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the lens design and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved clarity and colour neutrality.
  • Nano AR Coating II has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and colour rendering in strong lighting conditions. This updated coating is better suited for larger, curved elements and is especially adept at minimizing internal reflections.
  • An XD Linear Motor system uses two separate motors, along with an internal focusing design, to provide quick, quiet, and precise autofocus and tracking performance. This design also contributes to more natural, intuitive Linear Response manual focus control and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for quick focus mode switching.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 25cm suits making dynamic close-up images.
  • A focus hold button is present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select programmable settings.
  • Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications. The ring also incorporates a locking "A" position for use in automated exposure modes.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Fluorine-coated front and rear elements resist dust, moisture, and fingerprints and are easy to clean.
  • Filter holder is incorporated at the rear of the lens, within the lens mount, and accepts cut gel filters and a filter cutting template is included.
  • Integrated petal-shaped lens hood helps to block stray light from causing lens flare and also affords some physical protection to the front element.
