Joyful news from Sony today! They added 4 new full-frame FE (E-mount) lenses to their line-up. A fast (f/2) 28mm lens, 90mm f/2.8 Macro Lens, Sony-Zeiss Distagon 35 1.4 FE Lens and a 24-240mm OSS Lens. Especially this last lens caught my eyes.
I was seriously missing a good all-in-one lens from Sony when it comes to the full frame E-mount selection. Having a 24mm on the wide end of a full-frame camera is very decent but having the ability to zoom in to 240mm makes it very interesting, especially with added features like optical image stabilization and no less than five aspherical elements. It's also dust and moisture protected. Sounds like a perfect companion for my beloved Sony A7S full-frame mirrorless camera. It isn't a cheap lens, but considering the other options you have right now when you need a nice amount of zoom power on your full-frame camera (like the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS lens or going with a Metabones Mark IV adapter and Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens), the price doesn't look that bad anymore. On the contrary!
Below you will find all information about these new FE Sony lenses. And perhaps nice to know, you can pre-order all these lenses right now!
