(SR5) Sony will soon announce the Zeiss 16-70mm f/4.0 E-mount lens!

And finally we will get our first high quality zoom for the NEX system. Sony will launch the new Zeiss 16-70mm f/4.0 E-mount lens by End of August (likely August 29)! It will be unveiled along the new NEX-5T camera. This is a completely different lens than the 16-80mm Zeiss A-mount version (here at Amazon). But the price will be more or less similar (around $1,000).

One more NEX-FF thing: Still working on the camera specs. But I was able to get lens info from one source. I am now trying to double check the info I got. If it’s true than the lenses are GREAT! And that is not me being Sony fanboy or over emotional. Stay tuned on SAR!


Support: I upgraded my server plan to be able to avoid any blackout during the next intense weeks. I would be glad if you can help me to cover these extra costs with a small donation. Thanks!
