Reminder: Sony announcement in a few hours at 15:00 London time.

Share

In a few hours at exactly 15:00 London time (16:00 in Köln at the Photokina) Sony will introduce new lenses. As usual you can follow the event here on SAR where I will give you all links to reviews, news and preorders for the new products. By the way 15:00 London time is:
7am in San Francisco
10 am in NYC
23:00 in Tokyo.

What can we expect? The Zeiss 16-35mm f/4.0 for sure. And Sony will also likely show more new (pre)production A and E-mount lenses and an updated FE lens roadmap.

(SR5) Full Zeiss 16-35mm FE lens MTF and design graph.

Share

I got more images about the new Zeiss 16-35mm f/4.0 FE OSS lens that will be announced tomorrow. As you know you can follow the event live here at SAR at 16:00 Berlin time!

Here are two graphs about the new lens:

The Zeiss 16-35mm should ship within end of this year. But I “fear” that all other lenses that will be announced tomorrow will hit the market in 2015 only. Because so far I didn’t get detailed info on them…probably because Sony will not unveil the final info tomorrow (just general introduction).

To end with a good news: After Pohotkina I can probably start with new rumors about the High Resolution cameras and some RX camera info I got in these days.

Follow the Sony announcement live here on SAR on Monday Sept 15 at 16:00 Berlin time. That’s:
7am in San Francisco
10 am in NYC
15:00 in London
23:00 in Tokyo.
