Sony Announces Three New NEX E-mount lenses

Shipping in October, the Carl Zeiss SonnarT E has a 24mm fixed focal length and f/1.8 aperture, with a minimum focus distance of 16 cm and a $999 price tag. With a f/1.8 aperture, the $300 E 50mm OSS does not Carl Zeiss branding, but includes built-in image stabilization and a circular aperture, promising smooth defocus. Both lenses will ship in December.

A new telephoto lens, shipping in October, the $350 E 55-210mm compensates for its slow f/4.5-6.3 maximum aperture with optical image stabilization while offering 3.8x magnification.

Also announced is Sony’s LA-EA2 A-mount adapter that lets you use your full-size Alpha lenses with the NEX cameras without losing functionality, thanks to built-in Translucent Mirror Technology and a dedicated AF motor. NEX-3, NEX-5, and NEX-C3 owners will need a firmware update to take advantage of the adaptor. Costing $400 the adaptor ships in November.
