Sony FE lenses

The launch of the mirrorless A7 and A7R cameras in October 2013 with the first full-frame E-mount lenses presented a major milestone for Sony and digital imaging. The compact, high-performance camera bodies quickly established a strong following among enthusiast-photographers, but the limited number of native lenses for the FE-mount initially presented a drawback. However, Sony provided its system users with a roadmap of lenses under development and has delivered on the promised build-up of the lens catalog. A quite comprehensive line-up of full-frame E-mount lenses from Sony, Zeiss and other manufacturers has meanwhile emerged and continues to develop.

The latest official roadmap from September 2014 lists 11 lenses for release in 2015 or thereafter. All the indicated optics from this 2014-roadmap have meanwhile become available. Yet, the development of the FE catalog is continuing with new launches from Sony and third-party manufacturers, such as Zeiss, Samyang, and Sigma. The following timeline lists recent lens releases and upcoming lens launches – officially announced or rumored – and the subsequent table makes it possible to compare the headline specs of the new optics with existing lenses in the FE-catalog.

Further Reading

If the existing catalog of native E-mount lenses does not contain what you are looking for, what about using some lenses from other mounts on your mirrorless Sony via an adapter? Many of the Canon EF lenses can even autofocus on the latest Sony cameras. Or if you are willing to focus manually, there is the entire set of excellent Leica-R lenses, which just crave for a modern digital camera.
