This is a rumor confirmed by two long time reliable sources!!!
Sony will launch a new 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens. It will be on market by Summer 2020
This lens would be 2mm wider than the current Sigma 14-24mm FE
and probably 2x the price :) No seriously, I hope Sony will be more reasonable with pricing this time! While I am sure the lens will be shipping this summer it’s unclear yet when exactly Sony will announce the lens. UPDATE: Likely coming at Photokina?
One more thing: Before that lens we likely will get other new FE lens announcement. Stay tuned!!!
