Yes! We have the final proof Sony is about to launch a new f/2.8 zoom series! And we also found the officially Sony trademarked logo of this new lens series called “G Master”.
Sony will soon (at CP+?) announce the first of these lenses, the 24-70mm f/2.8 GM. The document in our hands doesn’t unveil any other details of the lens but this should be a Full Frame E-mount lens. It’s yet unclear how Sony will differentiate this lens line from [shoplink 44108 ebay]current Zeiss zooms[/shoplink] or [shoplink 44109 ebay]Sony A-mount f/2.8 zooms[/shoplink]. Maybe those are powerzooms or “cine-friendly” lenses like the Zeiss Master series?
To recap Sony is “rumored” to launch many new products before or at the Cp+ show in February. These are some of the stuff that could be announced soon:
New HX400 successor
Another new mirrorless (unclear what it is or if that is the A99 successor…)
New GM lens line (24-70mm f/2.8)
New FE roadmap with 85mm fast prime and at least a telephoto lens
Zeiss will launch the 18mm Batis
