New FE lenses: What lens will you buy?


On Friday (February 13 at 11:30 Tokyo time) Sony will present the new FE lenses and converters at their CP+ speech. I attached the rumored price info for each lens and converter and the questions is:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Note: The percentage shows how many of the voters selected a specific lens. Obviously because you can choose multiple lenses the sum of the percentages is well over 100% :)

Voigtlander 40mm for Sony E-mount now in Stock!



I know this is quite a “weird” lens. It’s a 40mm Voigtlander M-mount that has to be used along the separate close focus E-mount adapter (you have to buy it separately although many stores offer them as a bundle). The lens has been designed to be used on E-mount cameras only! It works well on both FF and APS-C cameras. And it’s now in Stock:
In USA at Adorama, BHphoto and eBay.
in Europe at Fotomundus.
In Hong Kong on eBay.

Sony Artisan Brian Smith: “someone might just make a 50mp camera for less than 3700 bucks!”



Sony Artisan Brian Smith commented after the Canon 5Ds launch:

Canon fired the first shot in the Great Mega-Pixel War of 2015, announcing a pair of 50.6 mp Canon 5DS cameras – This is just the first shot! Expect to hear more announcements soon… Who knows, someone might just make a 50mp camera for less than 3700 bucks!

He is likely “hearing” the same rumors I got….sounds exactly like the A7rII to me ;)

Sony has now plenty of time to “fight back” with the A7rII as the Canon 5ds preorders will start on April 30 only at Amazon. And shipment is June/July.
