More exciting ‘unofficial’ news about Sony FE mount is coming from kakaku.com, a Japanese photography website. We all know the roadmap published by Sony below; Sony mentioned that they will be releasing two Zeiss lenses and one Sony G in 2014 but haven’t given any information about focal lengths or apertures.
According to the rumor, these are the specs of the lenses that are depicted on the roadmap:
- 16-35mm f/4.0 Zeiss (UPDATE May 2014: Sony officially announced this lens)
- 35mm f/1.4 Zeiss
- 90mm f/2.8 Sony G macro
Considering that the 35mm focal range is already covered by Zeiss 35mm /2.8, I have doubts that Sony will release a new 35mm. Instead of 35mm, a new 85mm f1.8 or even faster would make more sense and serve as an ideal portrait lens. We expect to have official information from Sony during their press release scheduled in late March, 2014.
