Journalists are currently attending the 200-600mm FE G lens launch and shooting both wildlife and sports with it. But the official press text has still not be released.
I realized that I misunderstood the time release date: At 16:00 London time the Sony journalists press meeting has started but the NDA will expire on Monday! Sony decided to give journalists some hands-on time before the lens news goes public in a few days. I apologize for the misunderstanding!
One more thing: Latest I heard that the lens price is around $2,000!
UPDATE-2: Sony decided in very last minute to delay the public announcement to Monday…and we will get a second FE lens too! Read more about it here: sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-great-last-minute-news-two-fe-lenses-to-be-announced-early-next-week/
Summary in case you got lost with my rumors lately:
- June 5/6 journlists had a meeting to test the 200-600mm G lens
- But the NDA to disclose their findings is now set to expire on Monday and not Today (June 6) as they have been previously told
- A second lens has been unveiled to them at the very end of the meeting!
- This lens is a fast telephoto prime
