There have been one or two rumours that Sony is likely to be about to introduce a 100mm f/1.4 GM lens. They might not be true, however it might be an incredible lens for Sony so as to add to their lineup. Nikon has its 105mm f/1.4 and whereas there’s an FE mount model of Sigma’s 105mm f/1.4 “Bokeh Master” Art lens, it’s primarily nonetheless an tailored DSLR lens.
Sony Alpha Rumours has posted what may a potential spec sheet for an upcoming Sony 100mm f/1.4 GM lens – though “spec sheet” can be beneficiant. There’s little or no precise info, even when it seems to be true. However the thought of a local FE mount 100mm f/1.4 by Sony themselves within the type of a GM lens is sort of thrilling.
To this point, the rumoured specs look somewhat one thing like this…
- Focal size: 100mm
- Max aperture f/1.4
- Quad XD motors
- 3x Excessive Aspherical (XA) components
- 1x Tremendous Further-Low Dispersion (ED) factor
- Nano AR II coating
- 82mm filter thread
- Weight: 875g
As with all rumours, however probably this another than most, the specs is likely to be full nonsense. SAR says it comes from a brand new supply. There may not even be a Sony 100mm f/1.4 GM on the best way in any respect. Nevertheless, a patent was discovered in January 2019 detailing each Sony 135mm f/1.8 (released in February 2019) and Sony 100mm f/1.4 lenses. So, it’s not outdoors the realm of chance that it’s really true. Nonetheless, SAR regards this as a “Wild Rumor” at this level.
What do you suppose? Ought to Sony launch this lens? Would you purchase one?
