German lens manufacturer Voigtländer has just announced three new fast primes for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras: 35mm f/1.2 SE, 40mm f/1.2 SE, and 50mm f/1.2 SE. The “SE” stands for “Still Edition,” meaning that they’re aimed particularly at still shooters. The reason for this is clickable aperture, but it also makes them more affordable than the Sony counterparts.

Full specs and sample photos of Tamron’s new Sony FE mount lenses leaks ahead of official announcement
Tamron first teased a collection of four new lenses back in August. There wasn’t really any information about them back then, but they were expected to be Sony FE mount. In September we found out that they are the 20mm f/2.8, 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.8 and 70-180mm f/2.8 lenses and were indeed Sony FE mount lenses.
Now, the complete press release for the announcement has shown up on Sony Alpha Rumors, along with photos of the lenses and sample images. The official announcement is expected later today (or early tomorrow, for those in Europe).

Recently, Tamron published a teaser video for four new lenses they planned to announce at some point in October. It was reported that they were to be a 70-180mm f/2.8 zoom along with 20mm f/2.8, 24mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/2.8 primes. Now, it seems Sony Alpha Rumors has potential release dates for all four lenses. Or at least, release years.

A few days ago, the $900 Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD for Sony FE was officially released for preorders. The new lens seems to have got many Sony users excited.
