Maybe Sony's been listening and the 35/2 in an 85/1.8 package is coming to make us all happy?

A 35mm 1.8/ 2.0 would be nice.

A 40mm pancake would also be welcomed.

No, what we need is ANOTHER 50mm, even faster and more expensive. We have a 50/1.8 at $300, a 55/1.8 at $1000, and a 50/1.4 at $1500. What we need now is a 50/1.2 at $2000 or $2500! LOL, just kidding!

It doesn't matter to me what's next. I can't afford any of them.

Furthermore, I have all the lenses I need. Again. This time I mean it.

Don't forget the 50mm macro!!

Hmmmm...

"There will be another lens announced with the long-expected 1635GM in very near future. It will have VERY surprising parameters"

Lets guess...

- Fresnel based telephoto prime lens? 300? 400? 500? 600?

- 500mm mirror?

- Extra wide? 10-24?

- Tlilt Shift?

- Fisheye ?

- Specilized Bokeh lens? STF? -> Alread announced

- Super fast prime?, 105/1.4? 85/1.2? 50/1.2?

- Super fast Zoom? 24-35/2?

what else...

Re: New Lens Rumor

35 f2 and 85 f1.8 are hardly unusual. If there is soemone testing a prototype with a A9, it will be a sports lens.

I'm hoping for a 24-105 F4, but that isn't really 'unusual'. I use my 24-240 like a 24-120 as it tends to fall apart after 130mm, so its just a heavy 24-105!!

I have bought Canon 24-105/3.5-5.6 and use it with Sigma MC-11. I works well in decent light and appeared very compact and light combo. The lens itself is very good.

I just had a look and that lens is 525g, plus the weight of the MC-11 (125g?) That gives a total weight of 650g against 780g for the Sony so not really saving much weight for half the reach.

The length is also 104mm, say add 25mm for the adapter and that's 129mm against 118mm for the Sony 24-240, so the canon is actually longer for half the reach.

Looking for something smaller to be honest

  • "Could be a Pancake Kit Zoom. Bundled with the new A7III."

Wins my vote for the best suggestion, an E1650for FF

I thought they were talking about a 1.8 135 G yesterday? With the wide end covered so well by Sony and so many others and the money they just spent on the A9 and desire to go after the sports and wildlife market anything but a 300 or 500 prime does not even make sense. They are hurting on the long end and the A9 has lenses galore use for everything but med to longer telephoto but that is just my two cents. To entice the Canikon users they need to show they are serious now about the longer end to further legitimize the A9

You are speaking about the high end users, and true, all this is very valid.

Which is the most often chosen/used lens on these 'lower end' cameras? Yep, the E1650 kit lens for APS-C and the FE2870 kit lens for FF.

Imagine an FE2470P lens on the A7x cameras being just about as big as the FE35Z

I would go absolutely crazy for a FF power-zoom.  Something under 400 grams and under the size of the 85mm F1.8.  Find a way to make it a 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 and I would die and go to heaven.
