Let’s take a look at the latest news on the Sony side. Looking at the current leaked rumors, the next Sony GM lenses will be the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II (SEL2470GM II) and Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM II (SEL70200GM II).
Both the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM and the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM lenses are part of the holy trinity Sony lenses, and updating is essential. As is known, these lenses offer very good optical quality and excellent performance and are ideal for portraits, event and wedding photography as well as general shooting.
We see that the recently announced GM lenses (FE 35mm f/1.4 GM, FE 50mm f/1.2 GM and FE 14mm f/1.8 GM) offer high performance in a more compact structure. So we expect the upgrade to the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II and FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM II lenses will be significantly more compact and outstanding.
Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens
The 24-70mm F2.8 GM is built with three aspherical elements including a newly developed, extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) element that reduces aberration and delivers the ultimate resolution throughout the entire zoom range and aperture range, as well as from corner to corner of all image files. Additionally, an ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) glass element and Super ED glass element keep chromatic aberration to a minimum while maximizing resolution and bokeh without any unnatural coloration.
Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens
The FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS lens features a floating focusing system – implemented in an α zoom lens for the first time – that contributes to an impressive minimum focusing distance of merely 0.96m and ensures AF performance is optimized during both still and video shooting. The lens includes a SSM (Super Sonic Motor) plus dual linear motors that work together to move large lens elements quickly – a task that requires a high level of drive control and ensures focus accuracy. The new model also has built in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for capturing sharp, blur-free subjects at all focal lengths and a rotating tripod mount that allows the camera to be quickly removed from a connected tripod as needed.
