Sony Will Announce Additional 6 New FE Lenses in 2016

Sony already announced that they will add an additional 8 new lenses to its FE full frame lineup by early 2016 (along with the announcement that Sony will add uncompressed 14-Bit RAW on the new Sony a7SII and Sony a7RII (via firmware update).

The α7S II and α7R II are compatible with Sony’s growing lineup of α -mount lenses, which now totals 63 different models including 12 native ‘FE’ full frame lenses. By early 2016, Sony will add an additional 8 new lenses to its FE full frame lineup, bringing the FE total to 20 lenses and the overall α -mount assortment to over 70 different models.

In February 2016 Sony introduced their flagship “G master” brand of interchangeable lenses and announced the first three FE models:

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens
Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens
Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens

So, Sony have to announce at least 5 Full frame E-mount lenses to fulfill the promise. According to the rumor from SonyAlphaRumors, Sony will announce additional six new FE lenses within 2016, and some of these lenses will ship much later, maybe in 2017. So, do you have any special wishlist or the lens you think Sony should have in their FE line-up?

    I hope sony will come with a succesor on the nice Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Sold together with the fs7. It works very good but of course like to have a lower F stop or wider range.
    I hope the lens will be much below 28mm (so I can film much closer to the subject) and much higher than 135mm (so I can for instance make a close up from behind the audience in a theater.) And if possible lower than F4. I know this is difficult but you never know what they will develop.
