Pre-order: Sony G lenses - FE 24mm f/2.8, FE 40mm f/2.5, FE 50mm f/2.5
Today, Sony introduced its exciting new array of E-mount lenses: the Sony FE 50mm f/2.5 G, the FE 40mm f/2.5 G, and the FE 24mm f/2.8 G lens. These lenses boast impressive image quality and excellent build we’ve come to expect from Sony’s primes. Plus, with lightweight construction, these prime lenses are more than powerful—they’re portable, which means traveling creators will be able to capture dazzling prime quality wherever they go.

Yeah if the quality is there this could be big news (excuse the pun). Especially for a7c users

Where does it say these are G lenses? The 40 would be perfect... unless, of course, it's a pancake.

EDIT: Nvm, here's the google translate output of the tweet: The next lens that Sony will announce is a compact G lens, which will be FE24mm, FE40mm and FE50mm.

Now does compact G mean like the 20 G or are we getting even smaller than regular FE lenses?

This has gotta be the most frustrating tweet for me for the year

Now we’re talking! Wonder how much this rumor will impact the 50GM sales... watch Sigma announce a DG DN.

Let me be the first to say it: no 28mm? Why can't Sony build us a nice 28.

That said, I think Sony really needs some compact G lenses and this looks like a really nice set.

Which lens speeds?
24mm: f/1.8 ? - since there’s already a 20/1.8
40mm: f/1.8, f/2 or f/2.8 ? - depending on pancake design or not
50mm: f/2 ? - there are already the 50/1.8 and the 50/2.8 Macro. Oh, and 50/1.4 ZA, 50/1.2 GM, not to mention the 55/1.8 ZA A 40mm is also semi-normal.

Watch sales of the Zeiss Batis range plummet even further.

I'm betting 24 f/1.8, 40 f/1.8, and 50 f/1.4, but we will see. These would all go well with the 20 f/1.8 and only duplicate the ZA 50 f/1.4 and given that Sony has already duplicated the ZA 35 f/1.4 I don't think that is a very big deal to Sony. I think Sony is totally ignoring Zeiss at this point.

Since it’s reported by nokishita, I guess we’ll see quite soon.

I think 24/1.8 is pretty certain, but I’m really less sure about the other two.

I hope these are composite with rubber controls and metal filter threads. Not easily scratched alloy veneers with plastic filter threads like the 1.8/3.5 and older lenses. I would like some pancakes too.

I find it odd they're coming out with a 40mm and 50mm at the same time sure there's a difference but I think a compact 35 in the gap between the 24 and 50 would've made more sense. That being said if they truly are compact and flare resistant with nice sunstars stepped down I could see my kit changing again and selling off my loxias buy ik still waiting for the 16gm
