Image on top shows the [shoplink 42118 ebay]70-200mm f/2.8 A-mount zoom[/shoplink]. A new E-mount version could come soon.

Three different sources sent me messages during the last couple of days saying that Sony is preparing the launch of the very first f/2.8 FE zoom. I am still not 100% sure about the specs and release date but so far I have been told:

1) Current FE zooms will get “updated” to be faster (f/2.8) and also of higher optical quality
2) One of those should be the 70-200mm f/2.8 FE lens. Reminder:Sony registered a new 24-70mm FE GM lens (SAR article here).
3) Announcement is likely to happen some time AFTER the Sony A68 announcement (scheduled for November 5th).

It is also unclear if Sony will announce those lenses for real or just on an updated roadmap with a real lens release in 2016.
