(SR5) UPDATE: Sony 35mm f/1.8 FE lens will be announced today at 3-4pm London time!


UPDATE: I just got a rumor from a single but usually reliable source: Sony has scheduled a Lens announcement for today at 3-4pm London time. Sony will announce the new 35mm f/1.8 FE!

This means we will have a total of three announcements the next days:

Sony FE lens launch today at 3-4pm London time:
– We will likely get the new 35mm f/1.8 FE

Sigma FE lens launch on July 11 at 9am London time:
– 35mm f/1.2 FE (Premium construction, Lot of HR elements in construction, record low aberrations, Record MTF of any FF lens at F1.2, Ultra fast and silent AF, made also for video).
– 14-24mm f/2.8 FE (smaller than currentDSLR version)
– 45mm f/2.8 FE (retro model with physical aperture ring, however it still has AF. Very nice build and small size).
– 24-70mm f/2.8 FE and 70-200mm f/2.8 FE are on the roadmap (unclear if Sigma will unveil this on July 11)
Important: All these lenses are designed from ground up for Mirrorless Full Frame systems only (no DSLR version)

Sony camera/lens launch on July 17 at 3pm London time:
– At least one “secret camera model” which we have been told it’s not APS-C
– There will be a new RX camera

Sony India teaser error:
For a short moment we posted an article about a new Sony India teaser hinting “something epic”. But as we learned this was a mistake from Sony and they used an old teaser for the 200-600mm and 600mm launch!
