Sony is allegedly working on more full frame E-mount lenses. Six new Sony lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras expected to arrive in six months period, sources say.

It is said that the company will put a lot more effort into its lens systems, most likely on the FE-mount. The most important model will be a wide-angle lens, which might have a focal length around 24mm with Zeiss brand.

The rumor mill also claims that all these full-frame E-mount lenses will be released before the next a7-series camera announcement. So this means that we can expect the high-end Sony mirrorless camera announcement from mid-2017.
