I've read a bit about this lens and even at 12mm this is supposed to be very sharp with no aberration around edges. Been waiting a long time for a native wide angle from Sony. This would be a killer wide angle for film No?087b0f2b345cdb367297c825e2d68d06.jpg

Cant agree more if one is shooting full frame video. Youd need 9 dome to support such wide lens. The challenge with such setup for video is ergonomics but again this is subjective.
By the way, this is not a G Master it is a G series Sony lens.
Here is the latest review:

My guess is that you're going to get quite significant distortion at 12mm even with a 9" dome (and soft corners). As far as I know, the Nikon 14-24 and the Canon 11-24 don't do particularly well at the extreme wide ends.


I also feel like the 16-35mm lenses are a better choice overall for the focal length versatility. 16mm already feels a little bit too wide for any video where the camera isn't static, imo.
