Sony makes four new FE lenses available

Sony has announced four new FE lenses. The development of these full-frame lenses for the Alpha 7 series cameras was already announced during Photokina, but they are now actually available. It concerns a 24-240 mm f/3.5-6.3, 35 mm f/1.4, 90 mm f/2.8 macro and 28 mm f/2.0 with optional conversion lenses.

With the four new lenses, Sony’s total lens offering comes to 11 different lenses for the full-frame E-mount cameras. The 35mm f/1.4 ZA is the only lens to bear the Zeiss label and is also by far the most expensive. The Direct Drive SSM autofocus system ensures quiet precision focusing even at minimum depth of field. The lens is equipped with a special aperture ring that can be operated with click-stops or completely silently. The latter is particularly interesting for video purposes.

The 90mm f/2.8 G is the first macro lens in the series and offers 1:1 magnification. The lens is equipped with optical image stabilization and the focal length makes it interesting for close-ups as well as portraits. Thanks to internal focus, the length of the lens does not change and a focus ring can be used to switch between manual and automatic focus.

The 24-240 mm f/3.5-6.3 offers 10x optical zoom and is therefore versatile. The field of view deviates somewhat from other full-frame super zooms, where Sony has chosen to offer a little more wide angle and less telephoto. It features optical image stabilization and the lens design consists of five aspherically ground lens elements and one ED element.

The 28 mm f/2.8 is a compact and bright prime that has a double function. It can be used independently and, thanks to the brightness, it is interesting to use in low-light situations, but can also be used in combination with two adapters. There is a wide-angle adapter that increases the angle of view to 21mm and a fisheye adapter with an effective angle of view of 16mm and 180 degrees coverage. Because the adapter makes electronic contact with the 28mm lens, the EXIF ​​data is stored correctly.
