Earlier this week, I received one of the more hotly anticipated lenses by Sony, the new FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens. GM—or G Master—is Sony’s new designation for their high end lenses and the inclusion of a faster, albeit heavier, 24-70mm lens is a very welcome addition. I’m going to be putting the lens to some field use tomorrow and will be comparing it to its predecessor, the Sony Zeiss FE 24-70mm f/4.

In the meantime, I’d like to share the Facebook Live Stream recording of my unboxing and size comparisons between the new FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM and the older FE 24-70mm f/4. If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments section. Enjoy!

You can also place your order for the now-shipping Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM at Amazon or B&H Photo & Video.
