It’s Christmas time and you need some small good Sony news? Here it is: A trusted source just told us that Sony plans to introduce a new 85mm f/1.8 E-mount lens in very early 2013. I have no info about the price yet. For comparison only: In the A-mount world we have plenty of 85mm lenses:
The Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens for Sony $289.00 ([shoplink 15953 ebay]here on eBay[/shoplink]).
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM for $894.00 ([shoplink 15954 ebay]here on eBay[/shoplink]).
The Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 for $1,598.00 ([shoplink 15955 ebay]here on eBay[/shoplink]).
My guess is that the rpcie will be somewhere between $600 and $800.
That said let’s finish the post with a good news for US readers. You are the first to have the 35mm E-mount lens in Stock. Check out here at AlphaCameraDeals (Click here).
