Sony is going wide with its newest lenses for full-frame E-mount cameras.

The f/2.8 G Master 16-35mm and f/4.0 12-24mm lenses represent two approaches in the wide-angle zoom category.

While both are intended for Sony’s full-frame A7 and A9 mirrorless cameras, they also can be mounted to its bodies with APS-C sensors. Factoring in the 1.5X crop, the 16-35mm becomes a 24-52.5mm, while the 12-24mm becomes an 18-36mm.

Photographers who shoot with Sony’s E-mount mirrorless cameras have been limited to a handful of Sony-branded telephoto lenses.

The addition of the Sony FE f/4.5-5.6 100-400mm GM OSS is the third pro-level telephoto zoom for the E mount. This lens also is Sony’s fifth lens in its premium G Master series.

After being silent for more than a year, Konost has posted a brief update on its site.

The three-sentence announcement doesn’t provide any information on the status of its project. Konost said it will overhaul its site and provide an update.

Konost made a good-sized plash two years ago among digital photographers when it announced that it was developing a full-frame digital rangefinder camera.

Sony A99 II

Sony’s E-mount cameras seem to have gotten most of the attention this year, with its A-mount family standing on the sidelines.

Unknown to most, Sony was working behind the scenes and has announced the full-frame A99 II.

Priced at US$3,199, the A99 II ups the resolution with a 42.4-MP backside-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor – a big increase in resolution from the 24.3-MP CMOS sensor of the original model. The A99 II omits the low-pass filter.

Zeiss f/1.4 50mm Planar for Sony E-mount

If there’s been one thing missing from Sony’s E-mount lineup, it’s a premium 50mm lens for its full-frame A7 models.

The vacancy has now been filled with the Zeiss FE f/1.4 50mm ZA lens – an autofocus optic.

The Planar has been Zeiss’ standard lens for 35mm and medium-format systems since the 1950s and has served as the basis for the standard lens for nearly all other camera makers.

Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm

When Leica announced its full-frame mirrorless SL system last year, it also promised two more lenses: a 90-280mm zoom and a f/1.4 50mm lens.

The APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL f/2.8-4.0 90-280mm is now available for purchase.

While the lens is intended for the full-frame SL, it also can be used on APS-C L cameras, and the zoom range becomes 135-420mm.

There’s a lot to like about this lens, which was designed in Germany.

Both autofocus lenses are expected to be available in May.
