Price and first photos of upcoming Sony FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G lens leak ahead of official annoumcement
Sony is expected to announce the new Sony FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G lens on Tuesday, March 22nd but as often seems to happen, information has leaked ahead of the official announcement. There isn’t a lot of information but there is a price – a UK price – as well as several images of the upcoming lens.
There’s the product image above, but there are also a couple of photos showing the lens in use on what appears to possibly be a Sony A7S III mirrorless camera with a Sony ECM-B1M microphone perched on top and a Sony FX6 cinema camera. This suggests that the new lens will be geared as much towards video shooters as it will photographers.
As for the price, it’s reported to be £1,299 in the UK, which equates to about $1,700. But that UK price does include 20% tax, so it will probably be closer to around $1,400-1,500 in the USA once it’s officially announced and goes up for pre-order at retailers like B&H.
If the rumours are true, we should find out next week on March 22nd.
