This could be the 18-35mm f/2.0-2.8 E-mount lens?


Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-30 um 11.14.17

The Japanese site Egami found a new Konica-Minolta lens design patent that could make current A5/6000 camera owners jump of their chair (if it’s going to be made for real!). This is a 18-35mm f/2.0-2.8 APS-C lens for mirrorless system. Konica-Minolta is known for selling their lens design to third-party companies. And it would be amazing if we would get such a fast zoom lens for E-mount!

Of course it’s just a patent for now but it’s about time for Sony-Zeiss to release a fast zoom for APS-C E-mount camera owners!
