Of the twelve new FE lenses promised by Sony six have been released. What’s next?


At the Photokina press conference in late 2018 Sony promised the release of 12 more lenses. They didn’t give us a timeframe which is kind of weird. But I guess that all those 12 lenses will be announced in 2019 and 2020.

Six of those twelve lenses have been announced:

Sony 135mm GM at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama and FocusCamera, ParkCameras, WexUK, Calumet DE.
Sony 200-600mm FE at Amazon, BHphoto, FocusCamera, BuyDig, Adorama, Henyrs, Amazon DE. Calumet DE. Amazon UK. WexUK. ParkCameras. Amazon FR. Amazon IT. Amazon ES. Sony Japan. Sony Australia.
Sony 600mm FE GM in USA at Amazon, BHphoto, FocusCamera, BuyDig, Adorama, Henyrs. Calumet DE.WexUK. ParkCameras. Sony Japan. Sony Australia.
Sony 35mm f/1.8 FE USA/CA at Adorama, Amazon, FocusCamera, BHphoto, Henrys. Calumet DE, ParkCameras, WexUK, Calumet NL.
E 16-55mm F2.8 G at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, FocusCamera. In EU at Calumet DE, Park UK, WexUK.
E 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama , FocusCamera. In EU at Calumet DE, Park UK, WexUK.

The question is…what to expect next?

Let’s start with Sony patented lens designs:
– 500mm f/4
– 100mm f/1.4

I think both lenses are likely to be released. I am 100% sure the 500mm f/4.0 is on the roadmap. And also the 100mm f/1.4 makes sense. We know Nikon’s 105mm f/1.4 is very popular lens. Would be nice for Sony to have this lens too.

Rumored lenses:
– Sony wants to extend the affordable prime lens offering.
– Sony also said that f/1.2 autofocus lenses could make sense (article here).

What do you hope to get?
I am sharing the list of the six lenses I would like to get:

– 18mm f/1.8
– 21mm f/1.4
– 24-70mm GM II
– 50mm f/1.2
– 85mm f/1.2
– 200mm f/2.0

Comment this post and let us know the SIX lenses that Sony should release in 2019-2020!
