(SR5) Stay tuned! Zeiss will soon announce a new Batis portrait telelens!!!!!!!

Image on tops shows the current three available Batis lenses

Hot news folks! Zeiss will soon (within days) announce a new Batis portrait tele lens! This is 100% reliable info!

We got no specs yet but previous rumors pointed towards a new 135mm lens. But still, that is yet not a verified rumor so take that focal length info with a grain of salt. Stay tuned on SAR. I hope to be able to gather some more info within the next hours…

Current Batis lenses at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

(SR5) New lens announcement tonight!

UPDATE: A reliable source told me there will be a new lens announcement at around 5-7am London time (Feb 22). He said this is a lens for the Sony system but it’s not from Sony or Zeiss.

Just a guess: I know from another source that Venus Optics will disclose new details of their Laowa 15mm FE lens. But as I said, don’t know if the “Sony-related” announcement is about that lens.

Reminder: Sony is probably going to have an announcement the second half of March. But that rumor still has to be confirmed by our verified sources…stay tuned.

(SR5) New leaked images of the Sigma lenses. Sigma FE news soon!

One of our top sources sent us those images of the two new Sigma ART prime lenses (Click on the thumbnail to see the full size version). And he also shared three more info:

1) Those lenses will not be available for A-mount. Nor does Sigma plan to release them in A-mount sometimes later
2) Those lenses do work fine with the MC-11 adapter on E-mount cameras
3) He also said “don’t worry SAR folks”, some BIG Sigma FE news is expecting you in not so far distant time. Patience folks…patience! :)

The four lenses to be announced soon are:

  • 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art
  • 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art
  • 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art
  • 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary

First images of the four new Sigma lenses

These are the images of the four new Sigma lenses:

  • 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art
  • 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art
  • 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art
  • 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary

None of these lenses will be available for A-mount yet but you can use them on E-mount cameras with the MC-11 adapter. And it’s 100% certain Sigma will make native E-mount lenses in the near future. But I dont know yet if these lenses will be based on exisiting lenses or on completely new design for the E-mount cameras.
