If you thought that the announcement of the long-awaited Sony A7 III camera was exciting, you’ll be tickled to find out that Sigma has launched nine full-frame lenses for the E-mount. Whereas the 70mm f/2.8 and 105mm f/1.4 are brand new, the remaining seven are based on existing ART lenses for Canon and Nikon.
The latest addition to Sony’s range of full-frame E-mount cameras is the A7 III, the highly anticipated successor to the popular A7 II model. It can be summarised as a camera that synthesises many of the most desirable features from the flagships A9 and A7r III into an affordable body.
Today Panasonic introduced a new telephoto zoom lens, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH. It offers an equivalent range of 100-400mm in 35mm format.
In a similar fashion to the existing lenses in the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit f/2.8-4.0 series, the new zoom is available in metallic black and sports weatherproofing against dust, moisture and cold temperatures.
Canon has announced the latest addition to its EOS M range of mirrorless cameras, the EOS M50.
Today Tokina announced the long-awaited autofocus version of the FIRIN 20mm f/2 FE wide angle lens for Sony E-mount.
It adopts the same optical design as its manual focus sibling, but includes a ring-shaped ultrasonic AF motor which promises to be both fast and accurate when coupled with the GMR sensor. More importantly, it is fully compatible with Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF system, all AF function settings and MF Assist functions.
