Say goodby to the “old” CCD sensor tech. Sony now officially switched all their effort on CMOS sensor development and production only. The news comes via Allied Vision:

“Many in the industry had expected this to happen sooner or later. As you know, CMOS sensors have become more and more popular in the last couple of years. With greatly improved image quality, sensitivity, dynamic range and speeds, they have outpaced CCD technology of late. Sony’s decision is a logical step in that context to provide further capacity for CMOS growth.”

(SR5) At last good news folks! Sony will also release the Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 and Sony 28mm lens!

sony_fe35mmf1.4_001

So it’s true. Sony really now has the strategy to announce the stuff after the big shows :)

Next week on Wednesday March 4 at around 5-7 am London time Sony will announce the new 24-240mm FE lens (this means you can preorder it the very same day). And now Digicameinfo reports that also the Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 and the Sony 28mm f/2.0 should be announced very soon (I Guess the same day!). As usual you can follow the live blogging of the lens announcement on SAR (5-7am London time of March 4).

Digicameinfo and also one of my sources told me that maybe the 90mm FE macro lens will be announced later (not on March 4). That’s why it’s also not listed among the other lenses by the Hong Store who already accepts preorders on three new FE lenses. The images you see here are the official product photos of the new lenses.
