Pictured on top: The Sony DT 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6. There will be a similar zoom for fullframe within 2011.
It’s very difficult for me to get reliable info about the upcoming lenses. This because the recent Earthquake in Japan changed the plan of all camera manufactors (Sony and Zeiss). As I already told you the 500mm f/4.0 G lens has been delayed and I have to check what of the orgiginal 4-5 planed Fullframe lenses will be announced within 2011. But there is one small reliable info I can share with you today. Sony should release a premium ultrawide G fullframe zoom within end 2011. I have been told it is “along the lines of the 11-18 but much higher quality, and not DT” Check the 11-18 Sont DT lens at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
One more rumor (SR2)
I ask my sources if they know something about that Zeiss lens roadmap I got from a new source:
14mm Distagon f/2.8
28mm Distagon f/2
35mm Distagon f/1.4
200mm ApoSonnar f/2
Would love this to be true!!! If you know more about the lens roadmap feel free to drop me a text at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on the right sidebar (it’s anonymous!)
