Sony 16-35 f/2.8 GM and 12-24mm F4 G

Sony 16-35mm F2.8 GM


Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G

Sony launches two new lenses, missing from their line up of pro level lenses. Giving Sony users parity with Nikon and Canon at the wide end of the spectrum.

This is a huge boost to the E-mount line up,  Sony looks to be pushing hard to round out their lens line up and show they are for real and around to stay, the cost of developing this type of lens is not cheap.

Next up? Super Tele, 400 f2.8. This seems logical given it is a huge hole for pro level sports photographers. They also need a 200mm f/2 a 300mm f2.8 and a 500mm f4. 

Sony has become a major player now and I can't help but wonder what Nikon and Canon are up to.
Can Canon hold their lead? can Nikon catch up? It will be interesting to watch this play out.
