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.
The Germany company Meyer-Optik-Görlitz took the Chinese Zy Optics f/0.95 lenses and “upgraded” them. UPDATE: Meyer-Optik-Görlitz contacted me to share the following info:
“Components for Meyer-Optik-Görtlitz lenses are : * sourced internationally * assembled, adjusted, tested and therefore made in Germany * shipped with a 5 year guarantee from a German manufacturer”
* Our lenses are improved in terms of material characteristic and mechanical quality
* To name a few: We use alternative components, eg. use materials supplied by a supplier of the German Avionic industry to guarantee precision
* we apply high-tech oils to improve slide ways and adjusting ranges
* special focus is assigned to quality assurance and minimization of the serial spread. Thus our QA testing and adjustment for each lens takes up to 3,5 h and 2 h on average.
* Our close quality tolerances currently lead to a reject rate of 50% for core components
This means they add a serious quality control on the Zy Optics lenses.
Digicameinfo reports that the 24-240mm FE lens will be announced next week on Wednesday March 4. This means preorders are expected to start the very same day. Shipment is expected to start on March 12 in Japan. It’s yet unclear if Sony will also release the pricing info (and accept preorders) on the other three new lenses. Although as I reported before Hong Kong store Shenzen is already accepting preorders on the new FE lenses:
Bernard: “A new test has been added for the Sony A6000 with a Rokinon 7.5mm lens. For over a year, people visit the site to compare different possible combinations of cameras and lenses for panoramic photography. The addition of the Sony A6000 complements the range presented on the site. A modification was done on the Sony A6000. Improve the standard Sony E-mount with the Fotodiox TOUGH E-Mount. This all-metal mount replaces the two-part mount that comes with most Sony E-mount cameras. Of those two parts, the actual mount that holds the lens is made of plastic, which is susceptible to wear and lens movement. By removing four screws, taking out the two mount parts, and inserting the TOUGH E-Mount, you give your camera a stronger and more durable lens connection. Of all sets that have been tested by quebecpanorama, the Sony A6000 with Rokinon 7.5mm lens is the one that offers the best value for money. The impressive quality, coupled with the ease of transportation, seduced us, so it became the official QuébecPanorama set. http://quebecpanorama.com/en/kits/view/rokinon-7.5mm-for-sony-sony-a6000“
So here is my experience. I now have two A7II. One is going to be converted to IR. I will get an a7000 as a back up when it comes out.Both cameras show vignetting in the upper right corner the is much more obvious than the other corners.I have been testing like crazy looking at […]
New lens firmware available for SEL35F28Z”, “SEL2470Z”, “SEL55F18Z”, “SEL70200G” and “SEL2870” lenses. This update provides the “Quick starting” function. I ran it on my A7ii with 55 1.8 and on my kit 28-70 lenses. Updated lens version from .01 to .02 and start up times are faster. The file linked is for the 55 1.8 lens. To […]
Hi, hoped for the new A7R II announcement with the new lenses. Actually I want to jump aboard with Sony Full Frame. Would be happy with 36 m sensor so A7r would fit just fine. It's just the feeling that I'm not patient enough to wait for the new one with better specs. Fuji X […]
I recently moved up from my NEX 5n & 7 to an a7 and now have the kit lens plus the 70-200 G zoom. I really need a wider lens and it looks like the Sony 16-35mm Vario-Tessar T FE F4 is almost the only choice out there other than a short prime. In reading […]
