DxOMark has just tested two Sony FE lenses today, the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens (B&H | Amazon | Adorama) and FE 50mm f/1.8 lens (B&H | Amazon | Adorama). Both are tested on Sony Alpha a7RII, the FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens performance even better than Otus lens tested on Nikon D810. And FE 50mm f/1.8 lens is an affordable standard prime lens for Sony a7RII.
Along with Sony RX10 III cyber-shot camera, Sony USA also announced two FE lenses for Sony a7 series full frame mirrorless cameras.
The Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 is a prime lens, giving photographers a considerably less expensive option compared to the Zeiss 55mm F1.8 currently on the market. This compact and lightweight lens is priced at $249 and will ship in May.
The Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS lens is the longest FE-mount tele-zoom available. It features four aspherical and two ED elements, optical image stabilization, and a Nano AR coating to reduce flare and ghosting. It’s also sealed against dust and moisture. The lens offers a minimum focus distance of 0.9m/3ft, and uses a linear actuator for smooth and silent autofocus. The 70-300 will also be available in May at a price of $1199.
Sony has filed two new lens patents for Sony Alpha full frame mirrorless cameras today. These new lenses are Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 lens and Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 lens.
