A one-lens solution for any occasion

This 24-105mm lens from Sony gives you the ability to go from wide-angle shooting to tight close-ups at a moment's notice. And with the high-quality images you'll get with it, you may just want to keep it on your camera at all times. It's perfect for shooting landscapes, portraits, and everything in between.

A constant f/4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range ensures your images will be consistently well-exposed since you can change focal lengths without having to adjust exposure settings. Specialized lens elements and coatings reduce lens flare and improve contrast and clarity for tack-sharp photos with accurate color rendering and minimal distortion.

Sharpest Lens that I owned

Can from Brooklyn, NY on 8/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am coming from Canon, and I was reluctant to switch to Sony because of the lens market, they were overpriced and the selection was not as big as Canon offerings but it is changing now. This lens is sharp, it is fast and build quality is top-notch. If you are in between this lens and 24-70gm, I say get this one, I owned both of the lenses and returned the gmaster after spending a weekend with 24-105. GM is heavy and not as sharp as 24-105.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

working on a project along the rio grande. just finished 7 mile hike in arroyo (watershed for el rio from the chianti mountains, texas) 42 megapixels of bold, barren, brazen land... can't wait to get back out there... this winter! At 73, i figure to have 10-15 more working years ahead. lightweight, powerful, reliable photo equipment helps.

Pros: complaint is poverty, gratitude is riches.


Almost the perfect set of trade-offs!

SS from New York, NY on 7/12/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Been using it for several weeks now. Very, very satisfied. * Superb image quality all through out... definitely worth the price * Superb build quality... much better than Nikon and Canon counterparts However, * Expensive compared to Nikon and Canon counterparts * Manual focus is clunky



Excellent moderate-zoom lens

Phaelon from Ithaca, NY on 5/17/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We purchased this lens based on the excellent reviews, paired with the new Sony a7iii. We're amateurs who take a lot of photos of kids' performances and vacations. We've only had the lens for a couple weeks, but so far the photos are incredible. Combined with the camera, the autofocus is extremely fast and the photos extremely sharp. This is a high end lens, and it feels like it. Quite heavy, but I guess that comes with high quality optics.

Pros: Sharp images, fast autofocus. Works perfectly with Sony alpha series.

Cons: Heavy, fairly expensive

Great addition to the Sony lens line up

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS zoom lens is a full frame (35mm) wide range mid-telephoto lens that is ideal for portrait, landscapes, and architecture photography, as well as everyday snapshots. With a wide zoom range, this single lens can cover a wide range of subjects and situations that normally require multiple lenses. The SEL24105G has a 9-blade circular aperture to provide a smooth bokeh effect (defocused background points of light) for more artistic compositions. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, lens hood, and a soft storage case with a drawstring closure.

Compatibility: The SEL24105G has a Sony E-mount, and is compatible with α-series Interchangeable Lens Cameras with the E-mount. It works best with cameras with full frame (35mm) image sensors, but can be used on APS-C sensor equipped cameras in a crop mode.

Lens Construction: This Sony G lens design features 17 lens elements in 14 groups. This includes 4 aspherical elements, two of them advanced, to suppress spherical aberrations (slight misalignments of the light rays projected on the image plane). Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements control chromatic aberration to deliver edge-to-edge sharpness and enhance the natural color reproduction.

Internal Focus: The FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS zoom lens has an internal focusing system in which only the middle groups of the optical system move when focusing. The overall length of the lens does not change while focusing.

Constant F4 Aperture: The lens maintains a constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. The exposure and depth-of-field stay the same, no matter how far in or out you zoom.

Nano AR Coating: Sony lenses feature Nano AR Coating which reduces flare and ghosting that typically occurs in backlit situations. The result is consistently high contrast and clarity in your photos in all lighting situations.

Fluorine Coating: The front element of the SEL24105G features a fluorine coating that prevents fingerprints on the lens and stops dirt from sticking. This allows you to easily wipe away dirt and fingerprints that may appear on the lens surface.

Direct Drive SSM: A Direct Drive Super Sonic Motor (DDSSM) drives the focusing system, and provides fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus. This lets you concentrate fully on framing and capturing your still images and movies.

Optical SteadyShot (OSS): Sony's Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization gives you stable, blur-free images, even at slower shutter speeds or when you're zoomed in all the way. At high zooms, even the slightest hand movement can cause blurring and distortion. Optical SteadyShot can be turned on or off as desired, using the switch on the lens barrel.

Lens Controls: In addition to the OSS switch, the lens has a Focus Mode switch that lets you switch between AF (auto focus) and MF (manual focus). When in Manual Focus, you can turn the focusing ring to adjust focus while looking through the viewfinder. The Focus Hold button on the lens barrel lets you cancel Auto Focusing and fix the focus. The focus remains fixed as long as you hold in the Focus Hold button. To start Auto Focusing again, release the button and press the shutter button halfway.

Lens Hood: The SEL24105G comes with the petal-shaped ALC-SH152 lens hood to protect the lens, reduce lens flare, and ensure maximum image quality. The hood attaches to the lens with a bayonet-type fit. When not in use, the lens hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens. The lens hood adds approximately 1-1/4" to the overall length of the lens.
