|Three new Sony E-mount lenses: the 16-50mm power zoom, 35mm f/1.8 lens and 10-18mm super-wide lens|
Sony has announced three new E-mount lenses at Photokina 2012 for their NEX cameras. A 35mm F1.8 prime lens, a 10-18mm super-wide zoom and a 16-50mm power zoom lens.
There's one lens that caught my interest the most and that is the 10-18mm F4. I've been looking for a good super-wide angle lens with auto iris and focus. Until now, that left me with only one option: the 16mm pancake lens with the ultra wide converter. But you couldn't use a ND filter on the lens, once the ultra wide converter was mounted on front of the pancake lens. So when you're filming outside on a sunny day, you have to use a high f-value and / or use a higher shutter speed to get the correct exposure. I was and still am very happy with this lens combination for use on the Blackbird stabilizer. The lens is very light and you'll have a good wide view with auto iris and focus, which can be very handy at times.
