Share

Reminder: That limited quantity eBay deal will run out soon. It’s on grey imported Zeiss FE lenses but the savings are big and they come with full US seller warranty. The seller itself is Top Rated at eBay:
$190 off and 3 years US seller warranty on the Zeiss FE 55mm lens on eBay US (Click here).
$60 off and 1 years US seller warranty on the Zeiss FE 35mm lens on eBay US (Click here).

Ken Rockwell: And both lenses got reviewed by Photo blogger Guru and Her majesty ;) Ken Rockwell. This is what he writes about the Zeiss 55mm FE:

No other 50mm or 50mm f/1.8 lens has anywhere near the optical technology of this lens. It is significantly sharper wide-open than anything from Canon or Nikon. If you’re reading this, just get one. Like a Porsche, there is no substitute.

And this is what he writes about the Zeiss 35mm FE:

The Sony Zeiss FE 2,8/35mm is an optically superb gem,the quality of out-of-focus areas as opposed to the degree of defocus, is superb.No other 35mm f/2.8 lens has anywhere near the optical technology of this lens. It is significantly sharper wide-open than anything from Canon or Nikon.

A and E-mount USA savings ending at midnight: So if you want to buy the lenses today is the last day you get the big E and E-mount savings in USA!

Lesnumeriques: Sony A-mount lens strategy focuses on FF.

Share

Bruno from Lesnumeriques asked Sony about the future A-mount lenses and the short answer he got is:

They focus on FF lenses for A-Mount and consider that their APS-C line up is enough for now.

Well this could mean the end of the APS-C A-mount system. I still do hope Sony will not “forget” to launch a new A99II soon. Otherwise A-mount people will really go upset!

New lenses: Still no news about the new A and E-mount lenses to come. But I am sure we will get news very soon (3-4 weeks from now). Proof of that is that Sony Russia already registered the new 24-70mm FE GM lens 30 days ago:
