New Sony f/1.8 APS-C E-mount Prime Lenses Coming?

Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS lens

Sony already announced the new flagship APS-C E-mount camera: Sony A6300, which features a newly developed 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor and a completely revamped ‘4D’ AF system with 425 phase-detection AF points. It is really amazing! However, due to the shortage of APS-C format Sony E-mount lenses, the users can’t play to the full potential of the Sony A6300. Although the full frame E-mount lenses can be used on Sony A6300, the bigger body and high prices are not suitable for A6300 users. So, what will sony do to change this situation?

According to the report from SonyAlphaRumors, in order to solve the shortage status of Sony APS-C frame E-mount lenses, Sony recently conducted a survey among some photographers. The main target of the investigation are those A6300 users with FE or E-mount lenses. Survey details include:

“The questionnarie and the interview asked about their preferences for prime vs zoom, focal lengths, max aperture, use of OSS stabilisation, low price vs high image quality, and whether they want and are prepared to pay more for depth-of-field scales and for pancake designs.”

The results showed that the APS-C 23.5mm f/1.8 OSS and an APS-C 18.5mm f/1.8 OSS lenses are the most wanted lenses and the users hope these two can reach the level of Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS lens.

What do you think about this?
