Sony releases spec and prices for full-frame E-mount lenses; ‘spring’ debut planned
March 4, 2015
The full frame (FE) lenses are designed to work with full-frame Sony Alpha 7-series cameras.
Heading up the newcomers is the Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA (£1,450) which boasts a minimum focusing distance of 0.3m and is the first E-mount lens with an f/1.4 aperture.
The Sony FE 28mm f/2 (£390) is a full-frame wideangle prime lens featuring a nine-blade circular aperture.
The 28mm f/2 will be compatible with the optional SEL075UWC ultra-wide converter (£210) and SEL057FEC fisheye converter (£270) – boosting the angle of view to 21mm and 16mm respectively.
Meanwhile, the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS (£980) is billed as a full-frame mid-telephoto with Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation.
Lastly, the FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS (£860) could make an ideal travel partner, according to Sony which trumpets its suitability for landscapes, action shots and portraits.
Also due out are APS-C lens adapters in the shape of the VCL-ECU2 ultra-wide converter (£134) and fisheye converter VCL-ECF2 (£151).
Sony says that all the new kit can be pre-ordered from today.
Sony has also today announced a new software update designed to boost lens functionality for selected current E-mount lenses.
