Sony has officially announced the new FE 24mm f/1.4 GM Lens. Despite that fast maximum aperture, Sony has created a remarkably small and light lens compared to its peers, with a weight of just 445 grams (15.7 ounces). Compare that to the Sigma 24mm F1.4 Art shown below, which is 50% heavier and considerably more bulky, albeit cheaper. The US price for this lens is $1,398, check pre-order option at B&H Photo Video/Amazon/Adorama/ParkCamera.
As we told you before, Sony is going to not announce anything for the upcoming Photokina. But to reaction with just announced Canon EOS R and Nikon Z6/Z7, Sony has just changed their mind and decided to make a new E-mount mirrorless camera announcement before Photokina 2018 on September 26.
What can expect from Sony at Photokina 2018 ? Sony currently has no new camera codes registered, so we may not see any new Sony cameras (a7S III, a6700, a77 III, RX1R III) within next 1-2 months. But we may see some new FE lenses around this Photokina.
