Pre-order: FE 100mm f/2.8 GM STF and FE 85mm f/1.8 Feb 07, 2017
New FE Lenses: FE 85mm f/1.8 and 100mm f/2.8 GM STF
Sony has just introduced two new FE lenses: The most exciting is the new high-end Sony FE 100mm F2.8 OSS STF G Master lens which brings very smooth bokeh thanks to its apodization lens element and 11-blade aperture.

This lens incorporates a STF (smooth trans focus) design to allow smooth bokeh while maintaining very high resolution and contrast. The only downside is the T5.6 transmission making this lens optimum for outdoors or studio work. Look for availability this March and a price of $1,500.

Update: Now available for pre-order

The new budget friendly Sony FE 85mm F1.8 is lighter and more compact than the more expensive Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM. It's a also a cheaper alternative to the current Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8.
The lens features a quieter AF motor and should also available in March at $600.

Update: Now available for pre-order

FE 70-200/2.8 GM: Sharpest and best low-light zoom we’ve tested Jan 24, 2017
FE 70-200/2.8 GM: Sharpest and best low-light zoom we’ve tested
DXOMark Just put their results for the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM lens.

Here is an excerpt to their conclusion:

"In terms of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8, it’s not only the sharpest and best low-light zoom lens we’ve tested for the a7R II, it also outperforms many FE-mount prime lens options, ranking as the fourth-sharpest lens we’ve tested on the a7R II. Resolution at f/2.8 is first-class between 100 and 200mm, and peak sharpness of over 80% acutance in the field occurs between f/4 and f/8 for phenomenally sharp results on the a7R II."

Read full review

It differs from LensRentals optical bench results but we have to keep in mind that LensRentals tests are done at infinity distance.

Order the FE 70-200 f/2.8 GM:

_______________________________



Just in time for our new Fuji board!

Fujifilm is back in the Medium Format business. Even though their APS-C digital system is successful, many of us still hoped that a full frame mirrorless camera was somewhere on the company's drawing board. Instead they surprised us all with a very bold move, announcing the development of a medium format body using Sony's 51.4MP sensor, which is four-times the size of their current APS-C sensor. The official announcement by Fuji of the development of the GFX 50S, Fuji's first mirrorless medium format camera, reminds us that this brand - that once had a strong position with film medium format cameras, is back to play in the big leagues.

It uses a similar version of the same 51.4MP sensor used by many companies including Hasselblad H6D-50c, X1D, Pentax 645z and Phase One IQ350. Compared to full frame, this sensor is about 1.7x larger, has a 4x3 format and its lenses have a crop factor of 0.79x.

The camera looks slightly heavier and bigger than the announced Hasselblad X1D mirrorless but it gains in adaptability since it has a focal plane shutter. There is a 26.7mm registration distance and its EVF viewfinder is removable.

Fuji announced the development of six lenses by the end of 2017. The first three lenses will be released at beginning of 2017. They are the GF 63mm F2.8 R WR, a GF32-64mm F4R LM WR and GF 120mm F4 Macro. (~50mm, 25-50mm and 95mm full frame equiv.)
These will be followed by a GF23mm F4 R LM WR and GF110mm F2 in Mid 2017 and a GF45mm F2.8 R WR in late 2017 (~18mm, 85mm and 35mm equiv.)

Fujifilm says its target price for the GFX 50S with 63mm standard prime will be 'well under $10,000'.
