Sony unveils three new lenses expanding its APS-C lens series

Sony has increased the number of E-mount lenses available for its interchangeable mirrorless cameras. They expanded their APS-C lens series using the E PZ 10 to 20-millimeter F4 G enhanced zoom lens, the adaptable E 15-millimeter F1.4 G & the E 11-millimeter F1.8 lenses. The overall count of E-mount lenses now stands at 70.

According to the brand, these three additions demonstrate its continued support for its APS-C optics for users who seek a compact system without compromising functionality or image quality.

E 10-20mm f/4 PZ G Lens

According to Sony, the 1st three lenses are a power-zoom 10 to 20-millimeter f/4 lens with exceptional edge-to-edge results. 3 aspherical elements are strategically placed to help reduce field curvature and astigmatism, typical issues with ultra-wide-angle lenses.

The least autofocus distance is 8 inches with a 0.14x maximum magnification, while the manual focus range is 5 to 6.7 inches at a 0.18x maximum magnification. An ED aspherical element adds to the image’s high resolution at the edges.

It is the world’s smallest ultra-wide APS-C zoom lens, according to the firm, and was created for videographers and vloggers who require smooth, consistent, powered zoom and the best image clarity in its class. Its small size makes it extremely portable: at 6.2 ounces, it’s 46 percent lighter than competitors.

The lens has a zoom ring, zoom lever, focus round & a personalized focus stop option that focuses mode switch. The lens has two linear motors for focus drive, resulting in fast, quiet AF and minimized focus breathing. Additionally, it features dust and moisture resistance, going for sale in July for $750.

E 15mm f/1.4 G Lens

The 15mm f/1.4 G is an enhanced, wide-angle advanced lens featuring Sony’s G-class picture results. That means excellent bokeh and quick, precise focusing every time. This lens boasts silent focusing thanks to linear motors and distortion-free image creation with high-end optics.

In manual focus, the 15mm F1.4 has a minimum focusing distance of 6.7′′ / 17cm and a maximum magnification of 0.15x. Although the lens features a wide 15-mm field of view, it employs three aspherical elements in a clever optical design to compensate for distortion and provide superb corner-to-corner resolution effectively.

The lens measures 7.7 oz. & has a diameter of 66.6 mm and a length of 69.5mm, and is dust and moisture resistant. When focusing manually, a Linear Response MF (manual focus) assures that the focus ring adjusts instantly and linearly to subtle control.

Like the 10-20mm f/4 PZ G, this lens is not only 46 percent lighter but also 25 percent smaller than the rivals, available in July for $750.

E 11mm F1.8 Lens

The E 11mm F1.8 was created with Vlogging in mind. Three aspherical components and three ED glass elements make up this design.

The aspherical lenses meticulously compensate for distortion and provide exceptional corner-to-corner resolution. The inclusion of ED glass is supposed to diminish color fringing and suppress chromatic aberration even more.

It has the same seven-bladed aperture diaphragm as the 15mm f/1.4 lens and can focus as close as 0.12 meters in auto-focus and 0.15 meters in manual focus. It supports front filters, a feature that ultra-wide-angle lenses frequently lack. In July, the E 11mm F1.8 will be available for around $550.
