The Sony G Macro lens on the company’s E-mount full frame roadmap is rumored to consist of a 90mm optic, which is on track to become official during the Photokina 2014 event.
Whenever there is a report regarding the future of the FE-mount family, Sony is accused of providing too few lenses for photographers using A7-series cameras.
The company has always asked the users to be patient because many more goodies are coming soon. One model that will be revealed at Photokina 2014 is labeled as “Sony G Macro” on the official roadmap and the rumor mill thinks that it has managed to find out its focal length.
A source is claiming that a Sony 90mm macro lens will be introduced at the world’s largest digital imaging trade fair for FE-mount camera owners.
Sony 90mm macro lens poised to be announced at Photokina 2014
Little is known about this product because the company has made tremendous efforts to keep its future plans a secret. However, some information will still be leaked within the rumor mill.
This is how it has been revealed that a Sony 90mm macro lens is the model on the FE-mount roadmap for the end of 2014.
The company will hold a press event on September 12 and another one on September 15, so this new optic will definitely be ready to grab lots of attention at this year’s Photokina.
Zeiss FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS and Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS lenses are sure to come soon
At least two other lenses will be officialized by Sony at Photokina 2014. The development of both of them has been announced earlier this year, but the company has failed to give them proper launch events so far.
The optics in question are the Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS and the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS. The former is coming by the end of October, while the latter will be released in December 2014.
Both units come packed with Optical SteadyShot technology, making sure that camera or hand shakes will not affect the end results.
FE-mount users might get a surprise at Photokina in the body of an 85mm f/1.4 lens
There is another possibility and it could consist of a Sony 85mm f/1.4 lens. FE-mount photographers are in desperate need of a prime lens with a very fast aperture and Photokina 2014 would be the perfect opportunity to meet their demands.
The problem is that most of these details are based on gossip talks, therefore potential buyers should contain their happiness for now and should wait for the official announcements. Stay tuned!
