Sony A6100  at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, FocusCamera. In EU at Calumet DE, Park UK, WexUK.

We were all a bit distracted by the launch of the two new A6600 and A6100 cameras to really focus on the two new APS-C lenses. Personally I believe the launch  of the new 16-55mm and 70-350mm lens is a bigger news :)

Today I will focus on the new 70-350mm APS-C E-mount lens. This is why the lens is so interesting:

1) It’s  the first serious quality wildlife lens for the APS-C shooters
2) In the Full frame E-mount world  you do not  have a 105-525mm zoom option!
3) Usually such kind of lenses from Canon and Nikon comes as 70-300mm lens. Those extra 50mm at the tele end are very welcome for wildlife shooters!
4) The lens isn’t cheap but it’s cheaper than the Sony  FE 70-300mm lens (I  know I am comparingg apple and oranges here)
5)  MFT chart (see below) and image samples posted at Sony.net show the lens delivers an impressive IQ
6) The lens is very lightweight, weather sealed…ideal for outdoor hiking and long time handheld shooting!

I believe if you own an APS-C E-mount camera you should definitely checkout this lens!
