Sony Anounces Two New Versions of Their A-mount Lenses


Sony’s latest lenses are packed with ghost and flare reduction, improved image quality, and improved autofocus. The two new versions of their A-mount lenses—Vario-Sonnar T 24–70mm f/2.8, and the 16–35mm f/2.8, have a rugged design, which Sony claims is dust and moisture resistant. An improved motor system, and more powerful processing is supposed to give the lens enhanced autofocus and 4 times the subject tracking speed compared to their predecessors.

  The 24–70mm f/2.8 II will be priced at USD 2100 (approx. Rs. 1,33,000), and the 16–35mm f/2.8 at USD 2250 (approx. Rs. 1,43,000).
