I think regardless of exactly what these lenses are the lineup of Sony E-Mount primes has gotten very strong. Even if Sony quits producing the Sony/Zeiss lenses we still have:

Sony 20 f/1.8G
Sony 24 f/1.4 GM; new Sony 24G
Sony 28 f/2
Sony 35 f/1.4 GM; Sony 35 f/1.8
new Sony 40G
Sony 50 f/1.2 GM; new Sony 50G; Sony 50 f/1.8; Sony 50 f/2.8 Macro
Sony 85 f/1.4 GM; Sony 85 f/1.8
Sony 90 f/2.8 G Macro
Sony 100 f/2.8 GM STF
Sony 135 f/1.8 GM

Not to beat a dead horse but every one of these focal lengths has a G or GM lens (which have all

The other lenses Sony is missing is on the longer end like the 200 f2.8 and a 300 f4. I'd like Sony to spend some of their resources looking at this end of the spectrum and not producing anymore ( at least for now ) the 20-100mm range lenses. We have plenty to choose from now.

Come to think of it now, maybe it's worth to keep the ZAs until they gain collectors value ...

Yes we need a small great 35.



Canít tell if this is sarcasm? Didnít we just get a couple of these?

Looking forward to seeing what the 40 and 50 are like. Canít guarantee Iíd buy anything Ė Iím pretty set with the 35GM and the Sigma 45, but something close to the Sigmaís rendering with better AF could be tempting.

I'm not selling either my ZA50 or ZA35 until I can see comparisons to new lenses. Both of the ZA lenses make beautiful images.

Nokishita is guessing the 40 and 50 will be f2.5, and the 24 will be f2.8. Not what I was expecting, so hoping these are very compact

They need to be either optically perfect or $400-500 in that case. I'm honestly not convinced that Sony can deliver equivalents to the Sigma I series in terms of polish at a price point that people would go for.

A 24mm 2.8 is rather traditional and if it's small and good, will be welcome. I just hope that it is small, good and cheap. The Tamron is $199 at the moment.

You are asking for a lot, "small, good, cheap". I'd take small, good and moderately priced...but then a 24 2.8 lens does not interest me.

The lenses will be very well made in G build and quality. Probably very small and ultra sharp and well corrected. A good addition and option for those looking to go light. I doubt it will be comparable to the Sigma I series, rendering will lean towards perfection rather than character.

Yeh, not interested is slow primes. Already have the Sony 35 2.8 and don't want anymore that slow.

Nokishita also say they should be announced next week.

If they are Sony 24/2.8 G, 40/2.5 G and 50/2.5 G:

Will they have any macro capabilities? The Tamron trio 20/2.8, 24/2.8, 35/2.8 and Sigma 24/3.5 C all do.

Will they be internal focus? I expect that from G lenses, but donít know. The Sigma 24/3.5 is, the Tamron trio, only half-way, barrel within barrel approach.

Are they designed with the Sony A7c in mind? A way of replacing APS-C, though being small these lenses would be equally at home on just APS-C as on full frame.

I hope they are 35mm ZA level in size. Depending on price and size, the 50 is almost a lock. It does need to be compact and smaller than the 1.8 by a good amount

A stray thought; compact Sony 24/2.8 G, 40/2.5 G and 50/2.5 G now that Nikon has got compact 28mm and 40mm lenses on their roadmap. Poor Nikon, late again?

Small and cheap should be a given at those speeds, good is relative but as good as the Tamron or Sigma.

Yep, at those speeds, they need to be Sony 35 2.8 small. Personally I'm more interested in the Sigma 28-70 rather than slow primes.

The latest rumor is that Nikon will also announce these lenses in the next weeks, so pretty close (which is also interesting in itself). You forgot the Nikon 50mm Macro, likely f/2.8, so also quite similar to the 50/2.5 G

Sony has already got a 50/2.8 Macro for E-mount. This means it will be interesting to see what kind of lens the Sony 50/2.5 G actually turns out to be.

SAR quotes nokishita now. One of the disquous posters refers to the Leica Summarit (=f/2.5) and Elmarit (=f/2.8) lines.
