(SR5) Confirmed: Sony product launch event on Febr 25/26. 135mm f/1.8 GM and some more lenses?


We now have been told that Sony has organized a major worldwide press event for February 25 and 26. There will be new E-mount product(s). It’s granted we will get at least the new 135mm f/1.8 GM but maybe Sony will also unveil some other E-mount lens too.

The chances to get a new camera are low for now. There will be a new E-mount camera announcement within June but we have no exact launch date yet.

I will let you know as soon as I have the exact Sony press event date. There should be a video livestream too which I will embedd on SAR. Stay tuned folks!

What to expect:
New 135mm f/1.8 GM lens
Hopefully some other new E-mount lens (100mm f/1.4, 500mm f/4.0 and 600mm f/4.0 have been patented by Sony. Also rumored are a possible launch in 2019 of the 35mm f/1.8 G and a new APS-C zoom.

What to NOT expect:
No A7sIII yet
There is a reliable rumor about a new E-mount camera launch within June. But it shouldn’t be announced yet at the WPPI show. My guess is that it will be announced in May-June.
