(SR3) Sony to announce a new updated FE lens roadmap soon?

Share

An anonymous source just sent me this (Thanks!):

Sony employees strongly hinted that announcement for the 6 new FE lenses is imminent and scheduled for later this week or early next week. They did not reveal (or did not know) any details of the actual lenses, however.

Other sources didn’t confirm the launch date but they said a fast 85mm prime and tele lenses will be on the new roadmap. You have any special lens wishes? :)

(SR3) Some A7000 sensor specs (via Fuji X-PRO2!)

fujifilm-x-pro

Fujirumors reports that the X-PRO-2 could use the same new Sony sensor that will be used by the future A7000. The Fuji camera will be released the first half of 2016 about six months after the A7000 announcement. And they report the sensors specs are those:

1) Sony has developed two new APS-C sensors: 24MP and about 30MP versions (not clear which one is used by Sony and then Fuji).
2) BSI (back-illuminated) Sensor
3) 4K-capable
4) Hybrid AF covering the whole sensor area
5) XAVC-S recording format and 60p (Fuji will use different code).

As you know the A7000 was scheduled to be released in May-June but got delayed by Sony for yet unknown reasons (maybe hardware/production issues). Next possible announcement period could be September/October. Fuji (and maybe Nikon and Pentax) are waiting in line to use the same sensor…

Updated Sony 28-70mm lens could have a constant f/4.0 aperture.

Sony_FE_28_70mm
There is a new Sony patent disclosing a new 28-70mm f/4.0 FE lens design. It may be that a future updated 28-70mm lens will get a constant f/4.0 aperture instead of the variable f/3.5-5.6 aperture of the current lens.

One more A7000 sensor news: Fuji will use it on the X-PRO2 too!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-06-26 um 08.43.21

That’s really unexpected as I thought Fuji would keep using their X-Trans sensor. But Fujirumors now reports that the upcoming Fuji X-PRO 2 could use the same A7000 sensor! The X-PRO 2 camera release got delayed to 2016 and they speculate the reason behind this is the A7000 launch delay. Sony allows competitor to use some selected sensors six months only after the sensor gets officially used on a Sony camera.
