It seems Sigma’s not the one one with a 50mm f/1.4 announcement this month. Actually, they’re not even the one ones saying one for Sony E mount cameras. It appears like Sony’s on the brink of announce one, too. It’s the brand new Sony 50mm f/1.4 GM and the newest rumours recommend it’s approaching February twenty first.
Regardless of an announcement being just a little over every week away, although, a photograph of the brand new lens has leaked. In fact, it has. They at all times do as of late. There aren’t many specs in regards to the new lens but, though there are a couple of, and there are some new ones we will see from the picture itself.
In accordance with Sony Alpha Rumors, based mostly on leaked specs from a German retailer, the checklist in the meanwhile is sort of small:
- It has an 11-blade aperture
- It’s climate sealed
- There is no such thing as a built-in optical stabilisation
- It would value round €1,850 (about €450 lower than the 50mm f/1.2 GM)
From the photograph, we will additionally see that:
- It takes 67mm screw-on filters
- It has a minimal focus distance of 41cm (1.35ft)
Apart from that, there’s probably not a lot else on the market but. However, if the announcement day rumours are right, we’ll discover out all the relaxation subsequent Tuesday. Properly, we’ll discover out on Tuesday assuming the leakers keep quiet. In any other case, we’ll discover out sooner.
Both manner, it’s an interesting-looking lens, even whether it is greater than twice the worth of Sigma’s new 50mm f/1.4 DG DN Art series lens.
