(SR3) Rumors about a triple A-mount lens update.


After all these NEX and E-mount news here comes a new A-mount rumor :)

They will have SSM and weather sealing

I can confirm that a 70-200mm  G lens update is on schedule for this year (maybe coming along the A77 successor this summer). But I am not sure yet about the CZ135  and CZ85. I will ask my sources if they confirm or deny the update for the two Zeiss.

Links to check price and specs of the three current A-mount lenses:
70-200mm G at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
Zeiss 135mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
Zeiss 85mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):

SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!
