Sony has announced a long-awaited addition to its G Master series of full-frame E-mount lenses. The Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 G Master is a full-frame, fast telephoto prime lens, and judging from sample photos – portrait photographers will love it thanks to its sharpness and creamy bokeh.
As if Sigma hadn’t given us enough today. With new 70mm f/2.8 Macro and 105mm f/1.4 Art series lenses, we were already pretty excited. But Sigma also have an extra gift for Sony shooters. Both of the two new lenses today, as well as nine of their popular Art series full frame lenses are being released with a native Sony E-Mount.
A native Sony mount offers advantages over simply using the Canon mount version with the Sigma MC-11 adapter. Such as compatibility with Sony’s continuous (AF-C) and high speed autofocus. And you’ll likely see some Eye-AF improvements, too. Very handy if you’ve been eyeing up that new Sony A7III.
