Before to move on with new Sony A5-A6 rumors let’s go crazy with this BS rumors I got :)
About those rumors: I have no idea who sent them and 90% of the times they turn out to be wrong. But, it happened in the past that a couple of those were right. So I will post them today, and we all together can eventually keep track of this. If one of the sources turns out to be right than we will know we can trust it a bit more!
We’ve received a pre-release unit of a new Sony lens for testing: Sony FE 200mm F2.8 G (SEL200F28G). It’s supposed to be a more affordable option for those looking for a good value tele prime. Price is going to be about the same as the 20mm F1.8 G, build quality too. XD motors are there. No aperture ring this time, only a focus button. Can’t tell much about image quality yet, but I suppose it’s on par with other G lenses. Size is a tad smaller than the relatively old Canon 200mm F2.8,
