New Release: Sony 5 Full-Frame E-mount Lenses

Sony had launched 2 full frame E-mount mirrorless camera last week, all the current E-mount lenses are compatible with the A7/7R but will only work in cropped mode. Hence, Sony announced 5 E-mount full frame lenses which includes 3 Zeiss lens (SEL2470Z, SEL35F28Z, SEL55F18Z), 1 Sony G lens (SEL70200G), and 1 Sony kit lens (SEL2870). Sony really put in effort to make their A7/7R stand out of the crowd, 4 out of 5 new FE lenses are high grade Zeiss and Sony G lens, so will they really make the Sony mirrorless series shine?

 I made a comparison table for a quick glance of these lenses specification.

The Zeiss and Sony G name lenses are really high grade and high quality lenses but still not sure how are their actual optical performance. Besides, there are still no price info, hopefully they will come with a reasonable and affordable price.

What do you think about these new lenses? As a NEX owner, would you consider any of these lenses as your next E-mount lens? Welcome to share you thoughts here and thanks for your reading. See you guys!
