The Sony FE 12-24mm lens has a large image angle of 122 degrees by 12mm which makes it suitable for landscape and architecture photography. When you zoom in, you can use it to take portrait, street, and nature photos. Thanks to the fixed aperture of f/4.0, the light intensity stays the same when zooming in. The silent autofocus allows you to also use the lens to record videos. This way, you won't hear any disturbing noises in your recordings. Moreover, the fast and accurate autofocus allows you to capture quick action, and the Super ED lens elements have a Nano AR coating that reduces chromatic aberration. This means the colors of your images are brighter. The lens also has seals against moisture and dust, so you can also photograph during bad weather conditions.
