Three New Sony E-mount Lenses


To accompany the new Sony alpha NEX-7 and NEX-5n cameras, Sony is rolling out a trio of new E-mount optics: a Zeiss Sonnar T* E24mm f/1.8 semi wide, a Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS portrait lens and a Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS tele-zoom.

Optimized for use with the new 24.5MP high-definition imaging sensor, Sony’s new Zeiss Sonnar T* 24mm f/1.8 has the equivalent FOV of a 36mm lens on a full-frame DSLR, making it a natural for low-light street shooting and journalism.

For shooting portraits and other short-telephoto imagery, Sony is introducing the equally fast, optically image stabilized 50mm f/1.8 lens, which covers the same FOV as a 75mm lens on a full-frame DSLR.

The third lens in the lineup is the optically image stabilized 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS zoom lens, which is an 82.5- to 315mm equivalent on a full-frame 35mm DSLR.
