Been scouring eBay the last couple days for a fast aperture legacy in the 85-135mm focal range, and the today I see the news on SAR that Sony is going to announce a new e-mount 85mm f/1.8 sometime early in 2013. Woot!


If it comes then it is great news, none the less.

No NEX primes so far (except the 16mm, which have got vignetting issues wide open) have any distortion problems and hardly some, if any, vignetting problems. So, in camera correction is a non-issue when it comes to NEX primes.


SEL35/1.8 OSS

SEL50/1.8 OSS

SEL85/1.8 OSS

What a set of low light performing primes!!

Then we also have the cheaper alternatives:


Sigma 19/2.8

SEL30/3.5 (Macro)


Then Zeiss will give us:



ZE50/2.8 (Macro)

Looking good.
