Egami spotted the first Sony patent describing the lens charcatersitics of a 35mm f/1.8 E-mount lens for the future Full Frame system. The lens specs are:

  • Focal length f = 35.81
  • Fno. = 1.85
  • Half angle of view ω = 30.78 °
  • Image height Y = 21.6mm
  • Mod β = -0.25
  • Eight lens elements in 7 groups configuration

This would be a perfect street photography lens! I am going to buy it if if it comes in 2014 :)
