(SR5) Trusted source: Yes, Sony will launch a 85mm G lens soon.

85mmG

The same trusted source who shared the 100% correct Zeiss Batis lens specs contacted me to confirm that Sony will launch a new “85mm G lens” this year. He didn’t share any more detail but other sources said the lens should have a f/1.4 aperture and very creamy bokeh performance.

I only have one very small doubt: The source didn’t actually tell me if the lens is A or E-mount. I just suppose he meant E-mount based on the roadmap we have from Sony. I hope the source will correct me if I am wrong!

For readers: trusted sources do usually contact me through the anonymous contact form (and they use a nickname so that I can recognize them). There is no way for me to contact them other than posting directly on the SAR front end so that they can read me :)

nex-7successor

This is from an anonymous source. Rarely these kind of rumors turns out to be correct. But I thought the specs look so good you may tell me if you would really buy such a camera! This is what the source said:

Still ironing out the last kinks is needed, but it is likely to be announced soon. A possible date would be aug/sep.
•    The specifications showcase
•    Upgrade of the widely famed APS-C alpha6000
•    Newly developed 24MP sensor featuring backside illumination for increased sensitivity.  
•    In sensor HDR function including video for dynamic range up to 15.5EVs
•    196 phase detect auto focus points
•    Blazing 16fps continuous autofocus burst rate
•    Unlimited 4k video recording
•    Refined pop out  XGA OLED Tru-Finder
•    180 degree tilting 2.36M Dot  LCD monitor
•    Weather-Resistant Magnesium Alloy Body

By default the Camera will come with a new and improved Kit lens featuring 16-50mm F2.4-3.6
The camera set will be targeted to the professional consumer demanding uncompromised image quality in a small body. The target retail price will be set at1499$

Sounds good…if true!

(SR3) Sony 85/1.4 G to be annound in September/October?

A source claimed to have seen an early prototype of the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 lens. It was not labeled as Zeiss. This means he is not sure yet the lens will get the Zeiss or Sony “G” badge on it. The lens has been designed to have an extremely nice bokeh.

The lens is scheduled to hit the market in September/October.
