Sony have announced some very tasty new glass for E-mount cameras. The previously mentioned 70-200 G master is finally with us and an all new 50mm f/1.4 from Zeiss.
FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS G Master
These lenses are a big deal for Sony camera users, particular those with full-frame Sony mirrorless A7-series models. The 70-200mm has three advanced lens elements including XA, Super ED, and ED glass components, as well as its Nano AR coating. It features a floating focusing system – a first for a Sony zoom lens – that contributes to a minimum focusing distance of 0.96 meters and ensures AF performance is optimised during still and video shooting, Sony says. The lens includes a Super Sonic Motor (SSM) plus dual linear motors that work together to move large lens elements quickly. It has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation and a rotating tripod mount that allows the camera to be quickly removed from a connected tripod as needed. The telephoto zoom is dust and moisture resistant with an additional fluorine coating added to the front lens. It also has a focus hold button as well as a focal range limiter.
