1. Introduction

It seems Sony is on a roll when it comes to new lenses. In 2021 they have released already two G Master models, the 1.4/35 and the 1.2/50, and three handy G series instruments with the following focal lengths: 24, 40, and 50 mm.

For some time you could hear rumours that Sony were working on the 1.8/16 model that also was supposed to belong to the G Master series. As it often happens with rumours, they weren't very precise; still, all Sony FE fans got a very nice surprise because the new lens, presented on 20 April 2021, came with the 14 mm, not 16 mm focal length. What's more, with such extreme parameters the producers managed to preserve very sensible physical dimensions and weight. Small wonder we were incredibly curious how the Sony FE 14 mm f/1.8 GM would fare in our test and how would it compare to the much heavier and bigger Sigma A 1.8/14. The following chapters will provide answers to both these questions.

We would like to thank Sony for delivering us the final specimen of the tested lens even before its official launch – that allowed us to test it very quickly and we really appreciate it.
