24mm f/1.8 Lens from Viltrox is a 24mm wide-angle prime lens designed for Sony E full-frame mirrorless cameras. The flexible wide-angle focal length pairs with the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions and enables enhanced control over depth of field for isolating subject matter using selective focus techniques. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements, which combine to suppress a variety of aberrations and produce high sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Three high refractive index elements are included to suppress a variety of aberrations and distortion and an HD Nano multi-layer coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast in bright and backlit conditions.
This compact lens incorporates an STM stepping motor, which produces fast, near silent, and accurate autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design also contributes to quick performance. The lens features durable metal construction, and an integrated USB Type-C port for future firmware updates.
