Still one more announcement to come from Sony….

Yesterday we had announcements from Fuji, Canon and Nikon. But there is still one more announcement ahead of us: Sony will announce new E-mount lenses before the start of the WPPI show (which opens on Feb 25).

For sure we can expect to get a new 135mm f/1.8 GM lens. There is likely going to be no camera announcement. A new E-mount mirrorless and a new RX0II will be announced in Q2 (between April and June).
