The following rumor has been shared to me by an Japanese source who claims to be very close to Sony retailers. I chatted a lot with him and while this is the firts time he shares a rumor he seems to be a honest and genuine guy. So let’s see if he will one day become a trusted source. For sure I want this rumor to be correct:
“I got several information about FE lens from Sony retailers. Some FE lens is already making. Retailer said sony will announce some lenses what customers expect
1) 16-35mm f2.8
2) STF GM lens
3) telephoto zoom lens (like [shoplink 53805 ebay]70-400mm f4-5.6 G[/shoplink])
4) telephoto prime lens (like [shoplink 53807 ebay]300mm f2.8G[/shoplink])
5) wideangle lens (like [shoplink 53808 ebay]24mm zeiss[/shoplink])
6) standard zoom lens (like [shoplink 53809 ebay]24-105mm[/shoplink])
And he also says all FE lenses started making before the next new a7 camera series launch.
Sony will complete FE lens lineup almost same as A mount lens lineup.
16-35mm f2.8GM lens will be next.”
Important note: The lenses mentioned in parentesis “()” are just “indications” and the real specs will almost certainly differ. And now:
