Sony announces new E-Mount APS-C wide-angle lenses

Most photographers might be moving to full-frame cameras, but there is still a huge market for APS-C (cropped sensor) cameras, which are cheaper than full-frame ones. Sony has been one of the major brands in the camera world for a while now and if you have been into looking for cameras you might have stumbled on the Sony A6000 series of cameras which uses a cropped sensor format.

A crop sensor is smaller than the standard 35mm size which introduces a crop factor to the photos. This means the edges of your photo will be cropped for a tighter field of view.

Sony has announced new APS-C wide-angle lenses compatible with the E-mount. The total number of E-mount lenses is now 70 with the introduction of the power zoom G lens E PZ 10-20mm F4 G (model SELP1020G), versatile G lens E 15mm F1.4 G (model SEL15F14G), as well as introduction the ultra-wide prime E 11mm F1.8 (model SEL11F18).

The E PZ 10-20mm F4 G, focal length 10-20mm on APS-C or 15-30mm on full-frame, is the world’s smallest and lightest, ultra-wide-angle constant F4 APS-C power zoom lens. Outstanding G Lens imagery, impeccable autofocus (AF) performance, and versatile power zoom come together in a compact zoom lens that remains a constant length throughout the zoom range and offers refined visual expression and operability for movies as well as stills.​

The E 15mm F1.4 G, 35mm full-frame equivalent: 22.5 mm, brings beautiful F1.4 bokeh plus superb G Lens resolution in a versatile APS-C lens with vast creative potential. This compact and lightweight prime lens delivers dynamic imagery, excellent AF, and control and is great for both stills and movies with high operability. A large F1.4 maximum aperture, precisely controlled spherical aberration, and circular aperture mechanism make it easy to produce smooth, background bokeh for artist effect.

Large aperture, ultra-wide APS-C prime, the E 11mm F1.8, 35mm full-frame equivalent: 16.5 mm, delivers outstanding corner-to-corner resolution, gorgeous bokeh and fast, reliable AF for dramatic expression and stunning selfies. It is compact and lightweight so perfect for vlogging and shooting videos on the go. A large F1.4 maximum aperture, precisely controlled spherical aberration, and circular aperture mechanism make it easy to produce smooth, background bokeh for artist effect. The background can be blurred so subjects stand out clearly or create beautiful bokeh balls in low-light scenes.
