Sony FF in June... And more?

I'm active in a couple forums, and it seems one of the Sony Service techs is currently testing a FF cam that should be out in June.

Also, a CZ 50mm f/1.2 and a CZ 14-24 f/2.8.

So now the only thing missing is the newly redesigned CZ 70-200 and they'll have a complete 14-200 2.8 CZ lineup.

14-24, 24-70, 70-200.

Well done.

That would be a sick line-up, esp. if the CZ 70-200 does well on FF, which i expect it would.. that would force Nikon's hand on updating their current one.

Re: Sony FF in June... And more?

Where is this info coming from? Everything we've seen here points at a 16-35mm 2.8 and no 50mm 1.2

What do you mean by that?..

This are just speculations that came to very life on this forum, along with some 'info' from Chad Marek's 'fathers brother third cousin' or something like that. I guess we'll see for sure in a few weeks, but I have an impression that your post is more like a question than a statement.. Isn't it?

Sounds interesting especially if it actually comes out in June as you say.

Re: Sony FF in June... And more?

Where is this coming from?

the 14-24 has just been a pipe dream by folks since Nikon brought theirs. There has never been anything to support it. A 1.2/50ZA is likely in time, but IN TIME, such a lens was not shown in mockup and can't be a priority for them.

I believe the same people who created the 14-24 rumor are the people who created the new 70-200 Zeiss rumor which is completely un-supported.

Hahah! Of course I take it all with a grain of salt, though so far he's been pretty accurate.

Re: Sony FF in June... And more?

Hope so it is looking good for Sony to move into N&C domain and will put pressure on them as well, hope from me being a Nikon shooter they will bring out a semi pro FF d300 and some more FF lenses...

I Must say I was quite impressed by the live view and In body IS on the Sony A350 when I trial'd it out at a camera show.

Re: Sony FF in June... And more?

Sony FF by the end of the month would be a wise choice.. RE the Olympics... However i think its doubtful as it'd leave Sony without a bag of tricks come PMA. Unless they unleash a second (faster/low res) FF as has been rumoured here recently.

Most likely senario from my reading and common sense, points to: Announced in PMA and available Nov 08. Liklihood lenes will be 16-35mm F2.8 and 24mm F1.4. No 70-200mm! Why replace a good lens.

Simple: You replace it with a version designed using modern computer technology, lens coatings and materials. Sharper and cheaper to manufacture.

Agreed. It looks like wild speculation to me. Not that it could not happen but I think it improbable at this point.

I dont think they are replace the 70-200G, that was defined as super telephoto zoom, 200mm are just a normal telephoto lens & i also believe that sony will now to produce more type of lens instead of improving on their lens at the same time the current 70-200G are really good lens. If they are replacing i guess they will obselete early like the 85mm F1.4 G and replace with CZ?

Re: Sony FF in June... And more?

"Why replace a good lens?" is no reason to say Sony won't come out with a CZ 70-200mm f/2.8 because Sony replace the excellent Minolta 85mm f/1.4G with a CZ 85mm f/1.4G.

Personally, though, what I think they need more than a new 70-200mm f/2.8 is a new 70-200mm f/4--a modern replacement for the beercan, aimed at the serious amateur segment.

And if they want any more CZ cropped sensor lenses, then a 16-, 17-, or 18- to 50-, or 55mm f/2.8 would be nice, but I suppose unlikely, given the CZ 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 and the presumptive introduction of an upper range FF and maybe even, with the next six months to a year, a mid-range FF to compete with the Canon 5D / 5D Mk. II.

Zeiss 50/1.2 ?

Hardly...

The last one was the limited 55/1.2 "100 Jahre" Planar that sells for around 3000 € today used.

I would say that most indicators point to the upcoming fullframe to be the 5DMkII competitor, so I don't think we'll be waiting long.

Also, Jason's right. A 50mm 1.2 Zeiss may be a fortune.
