G Master lenses are setting new standards for creative expression,
thanks to XA lenses with 0.01-micron precision and lenses that are
equipped with an 11-blade aperture that creates gorgeous,
smooth bokeh - while retaining crisp, high resolutions.
What is an 11-blade aperture?
Sony's original 11-blade circular aperture contributes to even greater bokeh quality. Design and materials have been revised to maintain a round shape, and strict circularity standards are applied to ensure that the full beauty of the lens's bokeh is achieved without compromise.
Superior surface precision enhances bokeh
Aspherical lenses are more complex to manufacture than simple spherical types. XA lens elements achieve extreme surface precision, which eliminates optical imperfections - delivering the most beautiful bokeh you've ever seen.
