More camera lens news as we move into June, and what is sure to be an interesting summer.
Sony shooters, listen up this one is for you! A fun new teaser video was recently released from Tamron, indicating a new full-frame Sony E-Mount lens, but not much more. The lineup already includes six full-frame Sony lenses.
The video (below) does little to address any new details, but does go through all of the key features of its E-Mount series of lenses:
- Lightweight and compact
- Short minimum object distance with a relatively high magnification ratio
- Unified 67mm filter thread across the full range
- Designed to take full advantage of Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras
Whatever the lens release ends up being, it’ll likely follow true to the key features of the line. Lightweight and compact, short MOD, and a 67mm thread, among other traits. Whatever the case, the lens should be a quality addition to the E-Mount lineup.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any new details or the impending actual announcement. It is typical of Tamron to provide an official announcement soon after a teaser such as this one, so the wait may not be too long.
Until then, let the speculation fly! What could it be?
