Sony will announce three new APS-C lenses: 11mm f/1.8, 15mm f/1.4 and 10-20mm f/4.0

Image on top shows the Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 (image on top) which was the last APS-C lens announced by Sony back on Aug 28, 2019!

These are the three APS-C lenses that Sony will announce soon:

  • 11mm f/1.8 (17mm in Full Frame equivalent terms)
  • 15mm f/1.4 (22mm in Full Frame equivalent terms)
  • 10-20mm f/4.0 (15-30mm in Full Frame equivalent terms)

I also have been told the 10-20mm lens is a very compact and lightweight travel-friendly wide angle zoom.

It’s quite a big commitment from Sony to launch fast ultra wide and wide primes. It’s a pity they will not announce a new APS-C camera too but this has to do with the current worldwide semiconductor shortage. From what I heard the ZV kind of E-mount camera launch has been delayed to late 2022.

Here are many detailed thoughts on the new lenses:

I will share more lens info and probably also some A7rV soon!

Therefore, to not miss any rumors I kindly invite you all to follow the Discord channel, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and my new Youtube channel.

RUMOR: Sony is rumored to announce three new APS-C E lenses within the next weeks: Two far primes and a zoom!

Guess when Sony announced the last new APS-C E-mount lens? It was the Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 (image on top) back on Aug 28, 2019!

Now, to my surprise one reliable source told me that Sony might announced three(!) new APS-C lenses in May/June. These should be TWO FAST PRIMES and ONE ZOOM !!!

I hope other sources can confirm the rumor because I would hate this to be wrong. It’s about time Sony releases new APS-C lenses and cameras!

The Sigma 16-28mm FE lens could be the only lens to be announced for summertime

I have been told that Sigma might announce only one new E-mount lens for the summertime. Could be because of the worldwide shortage of electronic parts. That’s also why the new Sony 16-35mm FE and 24-70mm GM II will ship two-three months after their announcement.
