We have been just told by our sources that there will be a new E-mount Noktor 23mm f/1.7 lens coming soon. The design is based on cinema lens, that means it has a 12 aperture blades that will make a perfectly round aperture opening. The lens will be available in December for around $499. It has a minimum focus distance of 10cm.
The lens is made by the Chinese company SLRmagic which already makes the [shoplink 7109 ebay]35mm f/1.7 for NEX (available on eBay)[/shoplink].
