Current FS5 and FS7 owners certainly miss a PZ lens which suites for the sensor size of their camcorder. The current Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens is not wide enough for them. So let’s hope this rumor is correct. I got this from an anonymous source who also sent me the new FF E-mount camcorder rumor (article here). I have no confirmations from reliable sources so pelase take it as usual with a grain of salt. The source writes:
Just heard from an industry source that Sony are producing an updated G-Master E PZ Cine Lens 18-105mm due around Nab 2016 (Editos’r note: Updated version of the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens)
My Source was not sure of the final f-stop except that it would be Parafocal and maintain the same f-stop throughout the zoom range. Their own personal feeling was that would still be about f3- f4 but with improved image resolution and performance to warrant the G moniker.
